James Franco Says ‘Spring Breakers’ Sequel Will Be ‘Terrible’

Actor says anyone who joins 'The Second Coming' is boarding a 'poison ship.'

“Spring Breakers” fans may have ordered a celebratory round of shots when they heard there’s a sequel in the works, but there’s at least one person who isn’t happy about it: Alien himself, James Franco.

In fact, he’s pretty angry about the whole thing.

The follow-up — which is tentatively titled “Spring Breakers: The Second Coming” and follows the girls at war with “an extreme militant Christian sect that attempts to convert them” — is not being directed by Harmony Korine, but rather by Swedish filmmaker Jonas Akerlund, known primarily for his music videos.

Wild Bunch, the Paris-based production house behind “The Second Coming,” clarified that it’s not a “direct sequel,” but there will be “allusions” to some of the characters from the 2013 film. Wild Bunch co-chief Vincent Maraval said it will feature a mix of new and old cast, but without Korine in the director’s chair, none of the original’s principal actors have jumped on board.
