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!"

It's all fun and games until James Franco says your project will result in "a terrible film, with a horrible reason d'être: to make money off someone else's creativity."

Spring Breakers
There are really two different Cannes Film Festivals. There's the Cannes we know and love, the place where the filmmakers walk the red carpet and some of the biggest films of the year make their world premiere. And then there's the Cannes marketplace, where producers, distributors, investors and more all get the next wave of movies in front of people who can sign checks and make deals. And today, production company Wild Bunch has revealed the movies they'll be bringing to wheel and deal, and there's some surprising stuff.
