[Spring Breakers] follows four college-aged girls who rob a fast food restaurant to afford spring break in Florida, only to get arrested upon their arrivalâ€¦ Alien, a rapping drug and arms dealer, bails them out and entices them to kill his arch-rival, a murderer who is appropriately named Arch.
From anyone but Harmony Korine, known for scripting Kids and directing Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy, and Trash Humpers, the plot for Spring Breakers would sound like a wild piece of material. For Korine, it almost sounds like a family film. The story follows four late-teen girls who rob a restaurant in order to finance a spring break trip, and end up enlisted to kill the rival of their drug dealer.
Now Emma Roberts is in talks to play one of the four girls, and James Franco is attached to play the dealer. Emma Roberts would be â€œCandy, a Southern brunette who feeds off danger.â€ The film will shoot in Florida during the stateâ€™s famed spring break beach party period, with Franco expected to get his scenes out of the way over a two-week stint.
