Vertigo Films is delighted to announce that they are to release Spring Breakers in the UK & Ireland in association with Universal Pictures (UK), the UK home entertainment division of Universal Pictures International Entertainment.
Spring Breakers, written and directed by seminal director Harmony Korine, stars Disney alumni's Selena Gomez (Wizards of Waverly Place), Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), Rachel Korine (Mister Lonely), Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars) and Oscar nominee James Franco (127 Hours).
The film will be released April 5th 2013 in UK & Ireland.
Brit (Benson), Candy (Hudgens), Cotty (Korine) and Faith (Gomez) have been best friends since grade school. They live together in an average college dorm and are hungry for adventure. All they have to do is save enough money for spring break to get their shot at having some real fun.
A serendipitous encounter with rapper 'Alien' (Franco) promises to provide the girls with all the thrill and excitement they could hope for. With the encouragement of their new friend, it soon becomes unclear how far the girls are willing to go to experience a spring break they will never forget.
Vertigo Film's Rupert Preston comments, "We are thrilled to be working with Universal Pictures UK on one of the most exciting releases of 2013. Harmony Korine has created a bold, fresh and exciting film and we could not be happier to welcome it to our upcoming slate."
Universal Pictures (UK)'s, the UK home entertainment division of Universal Pictures International Entertainment, Head of Local Film Acquisitions, Richard Thompson adds "Spring Breakers is already one of the most anticipated and talked about films of 2013 - all of us at Universal Pictures (UK) are tremendously excited at the prospect of working on the film with Rupert and the team at Vertigo Films."
