Harmony Korine

In the wake of Harmony Korine's Disney-darlings-gone-wild "Spring Breakers" setting the opening record for a 2013 limited release title, the eclectic director has made a production deal for his next film. Title and log line are under wraps, but Deadline reports that it centers on a "multi-generational family of criminals in the South."

A24 "Spring Breakers"

"Spring Breakers" producer Charles-Marie Anthonioz will be on board for this new project, which is produced by John Lesher's Le Grisbi Productions ("End of Watch," "Blood Ties") and DCM Productions ("Quartet," "Kon-Tiki"). Lesher is perhaps best known for backing director Paul Thomas Anderson as his agent, and for going on to run short--lived specialty distributor Paramount Vantage (bowing out in 2009). 

Korine is also developing projects with Megan Ellison, whose Annapurna Pictures bought "Spring Breakers" out of Toronto last fall.

"Spring Breakers," aptly described by the director as a "pop poem" when he introduced the film at the Arclight Hollywood, opened to a remarkable two-city $90K per-screen average this past weekend.
