James Franco has blasted the Spring Breakers sequel.
The 36-year-old actor, who played the character Alien in the first movie alongside Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, appears in a bizarre video posted on his Instagram account today, in which he insists second film would not be a good idea.
The star, whose Instagram has become the talk of Hollywood after he started posting half naked selfies for fans, is seen eating rice cakes in bed with his eyes closed while being filmed by a mystery woman. "This is James feeling a bit sick cos he smoked too much dope in the club. His tummy is a bit sensitive," she said. He accompanied the video with the caption, "ALIEN IN REHAB! And BTW F*** that SBers 2 BS, they're doing it without HARMONY'S CONSENT. Sounds LAME AS A MUTHA! [sic]."
The star made reference to director Harmony Korine, who worked on the first movie, after reports the second film will be written by Trainspotting and Filth author, Irvine Welsh.
Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens are on the fast track to shedding their innocent Disney images - starting with Harmony Korine's latest film, Spring Breakers. In the film's latest poster, the pair are joined by their other bikini-clad co-stars Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine (Harmony's wife) while James Franco towers over them with a gun pointing at the viewer.
Spring Breakers hits theaters - appropriately - this Spring.

"I had a sense that it was going to jump around in different ways. But it’s not as if that inhibited me — I felt like I could just go for it. But even when [director Harmony Korine] sent me that first treatment, [he] said I want this to feel like a Britney Spears video meets a Gaspar Noé film, which says a lot."
- James Franco talks about the inspiration behind his latest film, Spring Breakers, helmed by Trash Humpers writer-director Harmony Korine.
