A James Franco-less, Harmony Korine-less “Spring Breaks” sequel is in the works, says Screen Daily.
Paris-based sales and production company Wild Bunch unveiled the title as part of their packed Cannes slate, which also features a “Maniac Cop” remake and an untitled Paul Verhoeven project based on Philippe Djian’s 2012 novel ”Oh!”.
The “Spring Breaks” sequel is titled – rather unimaginatively – “Spring Breakers : The Second Coming”; in it, the bikini-clad Spring Breakers clash with a militant Christian sect.
Irvine Welsh (“Trainspotting”) has written the screenplay, Jonus Akerlund is directing.
“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, adding there will be a mix of new and old cast in the production.
LA-based Muse Productions, which owns the concept to the first film, is producing alongside Wild Bunch and French distributor Mars Films.
