James Franco Really Hates the New ‘Spring Breakers’ Sequel
STATEMENT ABOUT SPRING BREAKERS 2: This is not being done with Harmony Korine or my consent. The original was wholly Harmony’s creation and these producers are capitalizing on that innovative film to make money on a weak sequel. I want everyone to know that whoever is involved in the sequel is jumping on board a poison ship. It will be a terrible film, with a horrible reason d’être: to make money off someone else’s creativity. Can you imagine someone making the sequel to Taxi Driver without Scorcese and DeNiro’s consents? Insanity! I’m speaking up for Harmony and his original vision and for any creative person who cares about preserving artistic integrity.
Previously, the actor, who played the drug-dealing, gun-totting Alien in the 2012 party flick, slammed producers for moving forward without Korine’s permission. He called the new project “LAME AS A MUTHA!”
