So what exactly is Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" going to be? With a star-driven and somewhat random cast including James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and more, it seems like the wildly singular director is aiming for the mainstream. But then again, one can never discount Korine's prankster spirit, so who knows if this is just a bigger budget "Trash Humpers." Either way, everyone involved has been more than eager to show off what they've been up to, with a seemingly endless supply of stills and set pics making their way online. And the movie even had a ginormous billboard up at Cannes, the kind usually reserved for blockbusters. We're still not sure what to expect, but until we find out, here are more cheescake pics of the cast.
To bring you up to speed, the story penned by Korine follows four college-aged girls who decide to rob a fast food restaurant in order to pay for their annual getaway, but get tossed in jail as a result. Who should show up but a rapping drug and arms dealer (Franco), who bails out the girls, and coaxes them to kill his nemesis named Arch (natch). So yeah, typically oddball Korine, and yet somehow he's managed to get some big names on board and presumably some of the biggest financing he's ever seen in his career.
He's currently in post-production on the film and there's no release date (or distributor for that matter) just yet, but will we see it this fall somewhere on the festival circuit? We hope so, if only to find out what on Earth he has put together. [ONTD/JoBlo]
