"Just when we think Korine was out of twists, he's come with another one, so we wonder what's coming next," we wrote at the end of our last update about "Spring Breakers," which was recently revealed to have electronic dance music guy Skrillex providing some music for the movie, with celebrated music supervisor Randall Poster (the Wes Anderson movies) also taking part. And as we expected, another surprise, with a big musical name now also throwing his weight in there as well.

Film Music Reporter reveals that Cliff Martinez, most recently noted for being behind the excellent scores to "Drive" and "Contagion," is now co-scoring the movie with Skrillex, which is kind of mind bending. There's no word yet on what that collaboration will entail -- if they'll each do separate, distinct pieces or work together or a mix of both -- but the composer is no stranger to mixing it up with musical acts. "Drive" was as noted for its tunes by Chromatics, College, Desire and more as it was for anything else, so it will be interesting see where Martinez, Skrillex and Poster meet and divide. The movie is also being described as a "comedy romance," which adds another interesting element, especially for Martinez who has mostly done dramas and thrillers.

But this is shaping up to be Korine's most commercial endeavor of all time, and certainly he's working with the kind of budget he's never had before either, being able to snare this kind of talent. The movie, starring James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine, is expected to arrive in 2013, likely on the festival circuit first, we'd wager. So, what else do you got for us Korine? This gonna be post-converted to 3D, too?

    Sundance Film Festival 2013 is looking for artists, filmmakers, they have stolen millions of dollars, from filmmakers submission fees; the films that Win Awards, are in fact 'THEIR OWN FILMS" look at the last 3 years winners, this year Beasts of the Southern Wild, their own film. My film submission was stolen, my script, whole concept was stolen from them, when you fill out your submission in "without a box" you are giving away your rights, Sundance knows this and uses it to make their own films.
    Tell all filmmakers, there are law suits there is a class action lawsuit pending, tell them to go to www.sundancefilmfestival2013.com and they can be compensated from damages due, from Sundance, the directors DO NOT WATCH THE FILMS, there are only 6 of them, do your math, they NEVER watch the films, my friend a film grad worked there they THROW OUT ALL SUBMISSIONS, THEY ARE ALREADY PRE-CHOSEN!

    Contagion was my favorite score of last year, with Drive coming in at no. 3. Still not seeing this movie though...
