A 'Spring Breakers' TV Series Is Happening

If you're still very much haunted by Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers, things aren't about to change any time soon. The hec film is apparently being adapted into a TV series.
It'll be based on Harmony's film, obvs, but he won't be involved. Instead, producers Chris Hanley and Fernando Sulichin are behind the project — which'll be available on a new streaming service Blackpill in an "unconventional digital format". As for the cast, there's no confirmation that the OGs will be back.
Two years ago, there was an announcement of a Spring Breakers sequel, with Jonas Akerlund and Irvine Welsh slated to direct and write. James Franco quickly shut it down, with an Instagram post stating "This is not being done with Harmony Korine or my consent. The original was wholly Harmony's creation and these producers are capitalizing on that innovative film to make money on a weak sequel. I want everyone to know that whoever is involved in the sequel is jumping on board a poison ship. It will be a terrible film, with a horrible reason d'être: to make money off someone else's creativity."
He's yet to spit the dummy over this series.
