Spring Breakers: The Second Coming was announced in May 6, 2014. Although the storyline will have connections with the previous film, it will include a new cast in addition to the original. The Second Coming, which Irvine Welsh has been attached to script, will focus on a set of Spring Breakers coming into conflict with Christian extremists.
Upon the announcement, James Franco released a statement stating that the sequel was "not being done with Harmony Korine or my consent" and that the producers were "capitalizing on that innovative film to make money on a weak sequel" and attempting to "make money off someone else's creativity."
On July 25, 2017, Jack Black was cast as the male lead, and stated that The Second Coming would be officially released on March 22, 2019, and that production has begun. On February 28, 2017, Selena Gomez was confirmed to reprise her role as Brit, Candy, and Cotty's friend, Faith. In April and May 2017, it was announced that Russel Stewart would return as the DJ, and that Morgan Freeman, Joel McHale, Carrie Underwood, Eddie Murphy, Tom Cruise, and Quinton Flynn had joined the cast.
