We've been mightily intrigued by director Harmony Korine's latest feature, Spring Breakers, ever since we got word of it last November and I Photoshopped James Franco's face onto an iron. You might even say we expect it to have "its own particular ... integrity."

So good news: We now know Breakers will be in competition at this summer's Venice Film Festival, where it will compete with 16 other films, including Brian De Palma's Passion, Terrence Malick's To the Wonder and Spike Lee's Bad 25.

In case you haven't heard, or missed Jonathan Durbin's piece for Interview in May, the film stars Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine (relation) as a gang of college students on spring break (duh) who rob a fast-food restaurant to fund their wildness, and James Franco as a cornrow-sporting arms dealer who I'm guessing is somewhat odd.
