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:

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
