Vulture Magazine recently caught up with Gucci Mane, the Atlanta rapper who appears in Spring Breakers, for one of his first interviews regarding the film which hit US cinemas nationwide yesterday. Click the above link to see what he had to say aswell as a snippet below:
I ad-libbed a lot. I didn’t really follow the script at all. I knew the script and I knew exactly where I needed to be and how much time I had to fill. But I wanted to add more of my lingo, add more of what was relevant, what was going on the street, what was current.
My plan is to drop three of my own films, that I produce, under my own company, Brick Squad Films, this year. It’s going to be a big year for me in film. I guess the filmography of Gucci Mane has just begun.

In an interview earlier this week, Harmony Korine announced that he was already beginning to formulate the ideas for his next project. It has now become apparent that this wasn’t just a throwaway comment, as Deadline are now reporting more details on the idea.
Spring Breakers helmer Harmony Korine, on the verge of having his first breakout hit after a most eclectic career, has made a deal for his next film to be produced by John Lesher’s Le Grisbi Productions and DCM Productions. Spring Breakers will open wide this week through A24 after garnering a huge per-screen average in limited release, starring James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and the director’s wife, Rachel Korine.
The title and log line of the new film are under wraps, but I’ve heard it involves a multi-generational family of criminals in the South. Spring Breakers producer Charles-Marie Anthonioz will also produce the film. This is likely to be Korine’s next directorial effort, but he is also developing projects with Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures; she bought Spring Breakers at Toronto last fall. Lesher has long been a Korine supporter; he was his agent for many years at UTA and then Endeavor, before he took the top job at Paramount and then became a producer.
Don’t get your hopes up but we will keep you posted as always.
