Selena Gomez and James Franco Debut Spring Breakers at Venice
Selena Gomez led the pack of Spring Breakers stars at a photocall this morning at the Venice Film Festival. She posed for photos alongside her leading ladies Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens, and Rachel Korine. Rounding out the gang was James Franco. Their Harmony Korine-directed movie also screened for critics — check out an early Spring Breakers review. The plot of the picture centers around the four girls on a vacation during college, but due to a lack of funds, they get involved in crime and mixed up with a gangster played by James. Harmony Korine is known for making art pieces, and James, who seems like he's usually down to experiment, jumped at the chance to participate. The Hollywood Reporter wrote of the actor's work in Spring Breakers, "Even by the elastic measure of James Franco's unpredictable career, the actor gives one of his more bizarre performances."
