Our favorite jailbait quartet is set to hit the silver screen for one more drugged-up-sex-binged-fueled time. Well, not quite, but it looks like a sequel is on the horizon for fans of the
very small cult cult classic Spring Breakers.
If you didn’t see the original, Franco’s character, Alien, got sent to Area 51 on some GTA Uzi-shower shit; so don’t worry about having to watch a rapper fellate his own guns, again. Alien may not be in the mix, but the ladies from the original might make the cut. Oh, and the most important thing— the premise is absolutely ridiculous:
[This film] will find a new batch of hot young things doing battle against a group of militant Christians trying to convert them. “It’s not a direct sequel although there are allusions to some of the characters in the original,”
Yeah … scantily clad chicks, bible-thumping militants? This is sounding like a straight to Netflix summer #Flopbuster. We can’t wait! There is hope though. They’re calling in the big guns, with Irvine Welsh of Trainspotting and Filth fame lending his hand on the writing tip with Jonas Akerlund throwing on the director’s hat.
Who knows, maybe this joint will eclipse the mental scarring that resulted from the original, or maybe it’ll just be another vice-fueled tornado of Dionysian splendor … or something?
