If you never wanted Spring Breakers to end, then you’re in luck. The film is getting a sequel! Will Pretty Little Liars actress Ashley Benson (Hanna) reprise her role as bad girl Britt?
Screen Daily reports that Wild Bunch, the production company behind Spring Breakers, is planning to launch a sequel to the film called Spring Breakers: The Second Coming. The film will follow a group of spring breakers who “do battle with an extreme militant Christian sect that attempts to convert them.” Though the original film was written and directed by Harmony Korine, the sequel was penned by Scottish writer Irvine Welsh and will be directed by Swedish director Jonus Akerlund.
As you may have guessed, it doesn’t sound like the film will include the same cast of characters, either. Vincent Maraval, the Wild Bunch co-chief said: “It’s not a direct sequel although there are allusions to some of the characters in the original.” As in: their will be both new and old cast members in the production.
Will one of those old characters be Ashley’s Britt? Well, though there has been no official word on this, Ashley did address the question in a tweet in February. When Cosmopolitan asked Ashley if she would consider doing a Spring Breakers sequel, Ash replied: “Funny thing. There’s been talk about doing a sequel. I think it can only be done once. It would be interesting.”
It would be interesting to ask Ashley this question again, given that the sequel has been officially announced. With Spring Breakers 2 a reality, would she want to take part in it? And are you eager to see Britt again?
