With Irvine Welsh On Board, A "Spring Breakers" Sequel Is Underway


Selena Gomez Ashley Benson Vanessa Hudgens Rachel Korine

When the end credits rolled on Spring Breakers last year, it didn’t seem like sequel material – all in all, things were pretty neatly tied up at the end of the original. Don’t worry, this article is completely spoiler-free. According to Vincent Marabal, speaking for French production company Wild Bunch, Spring Breakers: The Second Coming (a working title) will not be a direct sequel, but it will reference some of the original characters. The French powerhouse studio will be pitching the project at Cannes this year, according to MTV.

Spring Breakers Still
Apparently Spring Breakers caused enough of a stir to warrant a sequel.

Because director Harmony Korine is not on board this year (neither are any of the original, the studio has attached Swedish filmmaker Jonas Akerlund – the mind behind Lady Gaga’s Paparazzi and Telephone videos. So if nothing else, we can expect some continuity in the neon colour scheme. Akerlund will direct from a script by Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting, Filth) meaning the tone might get heavier, if anything. The plot summary, per Wild Bunch, proclaims: “the Spring Breakers doing battle with an extreme militant Christian sect that attempts to convert them.”
