Spring Breakers, a 2013 film directed by Harmony Korine and starring James Franco, Selena Gomez, and Vanessa Hudgens, is a boobs-and-blood-and-blow-filled Spring Break movie that has been described as “Scarface meets Britney Spears.”

Well, it’s getting a sequel, with Jonas Åkerlund (Spun) set to direct, and novelist Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) writing. Here’s a description of the plot, via TheWrap:

The sequel will follow a group of Spring Breakers who do battle with an extreme militant Christian sect that attempts to convert them.

I can’t imagine how the Christian right is going to react to this…

Here’s a trailer for the original:

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
