SPRING BREAKERS Director Harmony Korine May Next Helm Southern Crime Story

     March 18, 2013

Director Harmony Korine’s buzzworthy film Spring Breakers debuted to a highly impressive per-theater average last week in limited release, and now the filmmaker has already secured financing for his potential next project.  Deadline reports that John Lesher (End of Watch) has signed on to produce an untitled film that Korine will direct with DCM Productions.  The logline is being kept under wraps, but the story apparently centers on “a multi-generational family of criminals in the South.”

Having last helmed the 2009 feature Trash Humpers, one could say Korine has a very distinct voice as a filmmaker.  Thanks to his scantily-clad cast and a wild performance by James Franco, Spring Breakers has picked up considerable notice outside the indie community, and it has garnered generally favorable reviews (read Matt’s here).  Though this Southern pic could very well be Korine’s next feature, he’s also developing projects with Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures, which is releasing Spring Breakers.
