First Look At James Franco In Harmony Korine's 'Spring Breakers' Plus More Pics Of Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez & More

Harmony Korine has made movies with dudes fucking garbage, nuns jumping out of planes, and Die Antwoord riding around in wheelchairs, but nothing is quite like "Spring Breakers." Boasting a cast of young Hollywood babes -- and James Franco -- and (relatively speaking) as mainstream a plot as anything he's ever done, this might be the weirdest movie the director has ever made simply by nature of being totally unlike his previous work. And a bunch of images have been appearing online in the past few weeks, so we've rounded some of them up here -- but let's start right from the top.

Spring Breakers James Franco Vanessa Hudgens

Harmony Korine has made movies with dudes fucking garbage, nuns jumping out of planes, and Die Antwoord riding around in wheelchairs, but nothing is quite like "Spring Breakers." Boasting a cast of young Hollywood babes -- and James Franco -- and (relatively speaking) as mainstream a plot as anything he's ever done, this might be the weirdest movie the director has ever made simply by nature of being totally unlike his previous work. And a bunch of images have been appearing online in the past few weeks, so we've rounded some of them up here -- but let's start right from the top.

Boasting cornrows, messy facial hair, some swag shades and a colorful shirt, James Franco is looking like some kind of cross between Kenny Powers and Kevin Federline. And it's glorious. To recap, the film stars Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine (yes, his wife) and follows four college-aged girls who decide to rob a fast food restaurant in order to pay for the annual getaway, and who get thrown in the slammer once they get there. A rapping drug and arms dealer (Franco, amazing) bails out the girls, and coaxes them to kill his nemesis named (of course) Arch.

It also sounds ridiculous and pitched through Korine's distinct filter, we can only imagine what the result will be. But as these images bear out, at the very least, the shoot looks like it has been a blast. And certainly, with a bunch of wholesome young actresses pracing around in bikinis and acting bad, the paparazzi have been out in full force. Anyway, check it all out below. No word yet on a release date, but next spring seems like a no-brainer. [E!/Idolator/JustJared/The Superficial/Daily Mail/ONTD]
