Spring Breakers is Getting a Sequel, But There’s One Huge Catch
"Spring breaaak. Spring breaaak. Spring breaaak fo'ever." Spring Breakers, the 2013 movie which boasted big names such as Selena Gomez, James Franco, Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens, is getting its own sequel. But before you go on your own spring-break-like celebration in honor of the news, there's one huge catch you need to be aware of: the whole star-studded original cast is NOT returning.
According to Screen Daily, Spring Breakers: The Second Coming will be launched by Wild Bunch; the flick will feature the new Spring Breakers in a battle with an extreme militant Christian sect that attempts to convert them. "It's not a direct sequel although there are allusions to some of the characters in the original," says Wild Bunch co-chief Vincent Maraval. He adds that there will be a mix of new & old cast in the production. Hmm…
Considering all of the above-mentioned names were submitted for Oscar contention last year, we're wondering why the creators would want to continue without all of 'em. Would anyone even want to watch? Tell us your thoughts on the second Spring Breakers film in the comments!
