James Franco Circling Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers

James Franco.

James Franco's friendship with Harmony Korine has borne more fruit. Variety reports that Franco is close to signing on for Korine's next film, Spring Breakers, which will star Emma Roberts in the story of four girls who rob a fast-food place to finance their vacation, then get busted and thrown in jail. Luckily, they're bailed out by Franco's character, described by Variety as "a rapping drug and arms dealer who entices them to kill his rival." But of course. [Variety]
