James Franco disses ‘Spring Breakers 2’; Pussy Riot rumoured as stars

Pussy Riot

James Franco, a champion of almost every artistic endeavour, has cried foul over the proposed sequel to his 2013 instant-cult-favourite Spring Breakers.

Last week, responding to news of Spring Breakers: The Second Coming, Franco posted a video to Instagram where he called the project “lame as a mutha.”

It should be noted he was dressed as his character Alien from the film; a cornrowed rapper/drug dealer.

He particularly balked at the prospect of another Spring Breakers movie being made without director Harmony Korine’s consent. (Jonas Akerlund will helm this sequel/spin-off, from a script by Irvine Welsh).

That said, there has been one interesting development that makes The Second Coming sound pretty promising (illegitimate or not).

IndieWire reports Russian punk-bad and infamous activists Pussy Riot are meeting with producers about potentially starring in the flick.

The band, however, denied the meeting on Twitter, quipping, “We don’t even have spring break in Russia – down here we get breaks from one prison term till the next one!”

Still, might Akerlund be looking for ‘Pussy Riot types’ to star in his version? We are continually intrigued.
