James Franco Denounces Planned Sequel to Spring Breakers Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 05.15.2014
It’s being done without his consent…
Actor James Franco has denounced the recently announced sequel to Spring Breakers, Spring Breakers: The Second Coming on his Instagram account. According to Franco, the sequel is "weak" and "a poison ship."
Franco portrayed Alien in the first film, and wrote the following comments:
"This is not being done with Harmony Korine or my consent. The original was wholly Harmony's creation, and these producers are capitalizing on that innovative film to make money on a weak sequel. I want everyone to know that whoever is involved in the sequel is jumping on board a poison ship. ... Can you imagine someone making the sequel to Taxi Driver without [Martin] Scorcese and [Robert] DeNiro's consents? Insanity! I'm speaking up for Harmony and his original vision and for any creative person who cares about preserving artistic integrity."
