Yes, Harmony Korine is making a spring break movie. But of course, "Spring Breakers" is not going to be your ordinary tale of youthful reckless abandon.
Starring a pretty nuts cast including James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine, the film 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 Arch. While some pretty colorful set pics hit the web earlier this year, some more official/promo images have landed, giving us another look at the cornrow wearing, grilled out Franco as well as an eyeful of the quartet of leading ladies. Yeah, we're sold on this already.
No word yet on a release date, but when we spoke with Korine at SFIFF at the end of April, he said he was going to be working on the edit over the next few months. A fall festival premiere? Let's hope. [Kinopoisk]
