Idris Elba is replacing Jamie Foxx opposite Benicio Del Toro, with Al Pacino, Robert Pattinson and James Franco also joining the cast.
In The Trap, written by Korine, Rico (Elba) is at the top of his career and about to enjoy a triumphant night at the Grammy Awards when Slim (Del Toro) is released from prison after 14 years. Slim is determined to exact revenge after learning that Rico not only achieved fame and fortune but also married his girlfriend and raised Slim's son as his own.

Slim's plot includes recruiting a crew of Uzi-weilding surfers led by Max (Pattinson), as well as enlisting the help of Rico's cocaine-happy manager (Franco). Pacino will play Slim's parole officer.

There are some emails about The Trap in the Sony hack:

https://wikileaks.org/sony/emails/?q=ko ... archresult

It's pretty embarrassing reading a bunch of executives talking about and trying to sell Korine. They do mention budget of $25-30 million though and it looks like the script was attached a couple of times. I tried searching for it in the document search but it didn't show up. Anyone else able to find it? Looking at you oops.

MadRiver Pictures is also edging closer to co-finance and co-produce Harmony Korine’s The Trap ... will start work in early 2016

Cliff Martinez possibly on board again.
Are you talking to Harmony [Korine] at all about his next film “The Trap?”

Yeah I have. He sent me the script. I don’t know what the status of it is. He sent me some music from some obscure electronic artist. So we kind of exchanged a few ideas and exchanged about the script. I don’t know where that project is at. So I hope to be working on it. He’s kind of dropped out of sight.

With a recent forum update, the last month of posts (not many) weren't included. I'm still able to see access these posts myself though (through a junky copy of the forum that I couldn't get to work properly) and so I'm quoting/re-posting the the HK ones so they're not lost.

On Setepmber 11, baal posted:
James Franco: So, what about a song like “Florida Kilos”?

Lana Del Rey: It’s funny you should bring up that song because that’s actually the only co-write on “Ultraviolence”. And that is Harmony Korine. He wanted me to write a tune about this movie that I think you’re going to be in [The Trap]. It’s about cocaine cowboys. So for fun, that was something where he was just spitting off insane lyrics and asking me to put them into melodies. That song in particular is not autobiographical.

Korine wrote the script at Brett Ratner's house.
As a producer, I want to service the director and help him make the film he wants to make. That's the great thing about RatPac — it's not just a financing company. There's a content creator — me, a filmmaker — behind it. I found that directors are embracing us as their partners. They're saying, "Hey, Brett, can you come in with this or that?" I understand their plight, you know? Harmony [Korine] brought me his last script first. He wrote it in my house in Miami. People don't know this about me: I'm a cinephile and I love these filmmakers. I just produced a Scorsese short film with Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and De Niro. I haven't necessarily made a movie like that myself, but I produce them.

Korine is planning on making a new film later this year. “It will be the best one yet. It is ambitious. Only now am I able to make it.”

I heard about your movie The Trap (about an ex-con seeking revenge against a gangsta rapper, starring Benicio Del Toro, Robert Pattinson and Al Pacino) at Cannes last year – what’s going on with it?

We were supposed to shoot it last year but we had issues with one of the actors, so we were meant to start shooting it this May but I have a tendency to lose interest really fast. I was so close to doing it too – I had the whole thing storyboarded and ready and financed. I’ll still make it and I’ll still be making a movie this year. I got antsy waiting for The Trap to happen so I wrote another script.

this is great news as long as the trap still gets made (which seems less likely if I had to guess). i wonder if the conflict actor was benicio since he's working on star wars 8? or if he's referring to jamie foxx?
