Spring Breakers Sequel Announced

spring-breakers-sequel-announced

Last year’s neon-hued, madness-inducing criminal trip Spring Breakers seemed unlikely to generate a sequel. And yet here we are, as backers Wild Bunch have announced that Spring Breakers: The Second Coming is in development.

“It’s not a direct sequel although there are allusions to some of the characters in the original,” Wild Bunch co-chief Maraval tells Screen International, adding that there will be a mix of cast members from the first film with new actors. The plot finds a group of spring breakers taking on extreme militant Christians who attempt to convert them.

Original writer-director Harmony Korine isn’t involved in the sequel, and we’re not yet sure whether he’s given it his blessing. Spun’s Jonas Akerlund will handle directorial chores, with Irvine Welsh on script duty. Well, that certainly seems like the right sort of writer for the project. The rights to the new movie will be sold at Cannes this year. Can any sequel live up to Breakers’ crazed spirit? Looks like we’ll find out…
