Spring Breakers Director Labels James Franco a "Maniac"

by at . Comments

Spring Breakers fared fairly well in a limited box office release last week.

And the movie so far has generated a decent amount of attention because, well, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens get into a threesome.

But director Harmony Korine has given fans another reason to go see this raunchy film: James Franco's portrayal of a drug dealer named "Alien."

"I spent a year just sending him images and talking to him, designing the character," Korine told Movie Fanatic of working with the actor on the role.

"I never saw him do it. He didn’t want to rehearse. When he put in the cornrows and the gold teeth and I heard the accent… I was like ‘whoa.' He was a maniac."

We presume he means that in the most flattering way possible. Visit Movie Fanatic now for the full exclusive interview with Korine and sound off: Will you be seeing Spring Breakers this weekend?
