Spring Breakers 2 Is A Thing That Is Happening Because Hollywood

Spring Breakers

Featuring no one involved in the original.

No, seriously. Screen Daily is reporting that Wild Bunch will release a sequel to Spring Breakers called Spring Breakers: The Second Coming which will not be written or directed by Harmony Korine nor will it feature anyone from the original movie.

The story is apparently that “in which the Spring Breakers do battle with an extreme militant Christian sect that attempts to convert them.”

The good news here is that Irvine Welsh is writing the story so it should at least be interesting. Jonas Akerlund is directing and that’s… well it’s something. He made a good movie once but I haven’t been a fan of most of his theatrical work. His music videos are cool though so.. yay?

I want to be optimistic about this but ultimately does it need to be a Spring Breakers sequel? I think I’d be more optimistic about it if they had just announced “we’re making a movie about kids at spring break who have a run in with some fundamentalists.”
