You may have missed it in the feverish "Maps To The Stars"/"The Rover"/Cannes buzz, but in early May, Robert Pattinson revealed that he might make a movie with Harmony Korine. There weren't many details at the time, but a few more nuggets have been revealed, and evidence suggests the sort of unlikely project Korine has made his name on.

Dior Addict
While we wait to see if that Harmony Korine project with Robert Pattinson will really happen (we hope it does), the director is keeping himself busy and the bills paid by stepping into the fashion world. The director has gotten behind the camera for a fragrance ad for Dior, but the results are more traditional than you might think.

While James Franco and the producers behind "Spring Breakers: The Second Coming" have been caught up in a war of words, director Harmony Korine had his own reaction to the news of the sequel that he posted to Facebook a little earlier, saying: "Like what the F$$$ so some guy decided to make spring breakers two without mine our James permission lame muthafuker!" But life continues for Korine. He has a possible project brewing with Robert Pattinson, and uh, he's designing handbags. For real. Read More »

"The first time I ever felt like I was seeing an adult when I looked at myself on screen, was when I discovered the Dior ad that I filmed last year, directed by Romain Gavras," Robert Pattinson told Premiere (via Maps To The Stars Fansite) magazine (see the ad below), and it's been a long battle for the actor to be seen as something more than just a YA hunk. While "Twilight" shot him to fame, breaking out of that public persona was difficult. "After being dissed for years because of 'Twilight,' my ego was a little bruised," he admits. But he's got great reasons to be feeling much better about himself and his career.

Needle David Blaine
As fans of Harmony Korine know, one of his holy grail works is "Fight Harm," a project that he was working on with David Blaine in the late '90s following "Gummo," that was literally the director going out into the street and getting into fights with strangers. "I don't know, I have to wait and see. It's one of those things I go back and forth on, whether it's more powerful as an idea or whether I should show knife fights," Korine told us last year when we asked if it would ever see the light of day. "Only time will tell. It's difficult for me to make that decision to show it. It's just brutal. And it's also hilarious, but it's hard for me to go back and look at that. It was pretty intense." But he's since found another way to pair up with magician, with a project that's probably a bit more productive.

A Crack Up At The Race Riots Harmony Korine James Franco
While the Oscar nomination never came through for James Franco and his delightfully deranged turn in Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers," it was some of the best work the actor has ever done. And it would seem that Franco isn't done being inspired by Korine's particular sensibilities.

Director Harmony Korine, Holly Hunter & Chris Messina Join Al Pacino in David Gordon Green's ‘Manglehorn’

"Manglehorn" is probably some kind of variation on the nickname some critics may have given to filmmaker David Gordon Green's career. Green started out an adored indie darling in the vein of Terrence Malick (who would produce Green's third feature "Undertow" based on Malick's story), but three absurdist studio comedies in a row ("Pineapple Express," "Your Highness," and "Sitter") made him harder to pin down and it confused many pundits expecting a linear, not chaotic progression.

Riff Raff Says He's Going To Sue 'Spring Breakers' Producers For $8 Million Over Likeness

Harmony Korine's “Spring Breakers” is a neon-soaked, sun-doused pop culture collage, drawing on “Scarface” machismo and Britney Spears sentimentality. The allusions come quick and furious, but one consistent presence in the film, James Franco's grill-wearing Alien, incited the ire to of one real world likeness -- that of MTV rapper Riff Raff, who Franco did meet as part of his prepartion -- who is now taking legal action.

As “Spring Breakers” continues its victory lap on Blu-ray and DVD today, following its standing as Harmony Korine's biggest critical and commercial success, the “Gummo” and “Mister Lonely” director's efforts stands to reach a new audience, and rightly so. His films are singular, woozy, romantic portraits of Southern life, but a look back at his bloodline reveals a similar focus as the work of Korine's father finds its way online.
