Spring Breakers, a 2013 film directed by Harmony Korine and starring James Franco, Selena Gomez, and Vanessa Hudgens, is a boobs-and-blood-and-blow-filled Spring Break movie that has been described as “Scarface meets Britney Spears.”

Well, it’s getting a sequel, with Jonas Åkerlund (Spun) set to direct, and novelist Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) writing. Here’s a description of the plot, via TheWrap:

The sequel will follow a group of Spring Breakers who do battle with an extreme militant Christian sect that attempts to convert them.

I can’t imagine how the Christian right is going to react to this…

Here’s a trailer for the original:

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?
