- From Harmony Korine's Facebook page
Over at Interview
magazine, Jonathan Durbin has an interesting piece
on Nashville filmmaker Harmony Korine's upcoming flick Spring Breakers
— starring James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson — and the social media buzz surrounding it. "I liked the idea of the film as a social experiment," Korine says in the story. "It was like there were two movies — the actual movie, and then the one that the media, paparazzi, and the people tweeting photos were also creating."
And if you've ever wondered how Korine comes up with ideas for films, here ya go:
"When I wrote the script, I started thinking about girls in bikinis with guns, wearing ski masks," Korine recalls. "I was like, ‘Where would you see that?' And the idea of spring break came to me. I just started imagining girls on spring break robbing places."
It's an entertaining read, with equally entertaining pics. Check it out here.
