For a while now, rumours have been swirling about a sequel to last year’s hit movie Spring Breakers, except this time, the movie would be without producer Harmony Korine‘s consent.
Will the stars of the original film, including Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, Selena Gomez, and Rachel Korine be featured in the new one?
When the news first broke of the potential sequel, James Franco took to his instagram to address the rumours, saying: “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.”
Now, Vanessa has opened up about the movie herself, telling HollywoodLife: “I love what we did with Spring Breakers! I think that it is amazing and it is something that we are all proud of.”
“I don’t think any of us are a part of the second one so I am not sure what they are doing, I am not sure what it is even about, but I mean good luck!”
Standing by Harmony Korine, Vanessa continued: “If you don’t have Harmony, I don’t understand how its Spring Breakers, but…”
Just like James and Vanessa, Ashley Benson has also dished that she won’t be joining the Spring Breakers 2 cast either. “I got the email that we were going to do another one,” Ashley said. “as of now I would like to leave it as it is. I haven’t met with the director yet. I haven’t read a script either…that movie is so different, and I don’t know if you could do another one like that. Especially if Harmony isn’t the eye directing it. If there is another one and I am not a part of it, it will do great…they will get four new girls.”
