James Franco Slams Planned "Spring Breakers" Sequel

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- James Franco isn't too happy there's a planned sequel to his movie, Spring Breakers.

Franco took to Instagram, saying the new movie has nothing to do with the actor or the original film's director, Harmony Korine.

"STATEMENT ABOUT SPRING BREAKERS 2: This is not being done with Harmony Korine or my consent," Franco posted Wednesday.

"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."

Franco was also candid about the quality of the planned sequel.

"It will be a terrible film, with a horrible reason d'être: to make money off someone else's creativity," he wrote. "Can you imagine someone making the sequel to Taxi Driver without Scorcese [sic] and De Niro's consents? Insanity! I'm speaking up for Harmony and his original vision and for any creative person who cares about preserving artistic integrity."

This is the second time Franco has blasted the sequel.

A week ago when the second movie was announced, he posted a video, saying "BTW F*** that [Spring Breakers] 2 BS, they're doing it without HARMONY's CONSENT. Sounds LAME AS A MUTHA!"
