James Franco Slams Spring Breakers Sequel As “Terrible Film” And “Weak”

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes



James Franco continues to slam the Spring Breakers sequel.


The actor, who played “Alien” in the first film, took to Instagram on Wednesday to post a photo of himself in a T-shirt and share his disgust with the proposed econd movie and its producers.

“STATEMENT ABOUT SPRING BREAKERS 2: This is not being done with Harmony Korine or my consent,” Franco wrote. “The original was wholly Harmony’s creation and these producers are capitalizing on that innovative film to make money on a weak sequel”

“I want everyone to know that whoever is involved in the sequel is jumping on board a poison ship,” he continues. “It will be a terrible film, with a horrible reason d’être: to make money off someone else’s creativity.”

“Can you imagine someone making the sequel to “Taxi Driver” without Scorcese and DeNiro’s consents? Insanity!” he adds. “I’m speaking up for Harmony and his original vision and for any creative person who cares about preserving artistic integrity.”

As Gossip Cop reported, the actor first blasted the sequel last week, writing that it “Sounds LAME AS A MUTHA!”
