    James Franco Blasts Spring Breakers Sequel and Producers, Says Movie "Will Be a Terrible Film"

    James Franco is fired up!

    The 36-year-old actor took to Instagram today to blast the upcoming sequel to his film Spring Breakers.

    "STATEMENT ABOUT SPRING BREAKERS 2: This is not being done with [director] 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. It will be a terrible film, with a horrible reason d'être: to make money off someone else's creativity."

    The Oscar nominee added, "Can you imagine someone making the sequel to 'Taxi Driver' without Scorcese and DeNiro's consents? Insanity! I'm speaking up for Harmony and his original vision and for any creative person who cares about preserving artistic integrity."

    The Spring Breakers sequel, which is titled Spring Breakers: The Second Coming, was just recently announced as being in the works. The film will reportedly follow a new group of friends battling an extreme militant Christian sect attempting to convert them. Jonas Akerlund will direct the sequel.

    In other James Franco news, a documentary about the star is in the works, according to The Wrap. The documentary is almost complete and follows a year in the actor's life.
