‘Spring Breakers’ with Selena Gomez finally gets distribution, will open in Spring 2013

By Daniel S Levine,

Spring Breakers, which stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, has finally landed a domestic distributor. The film will hit theaters in the US in Spring 2013.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, upstart distributor A24 has picked up the rights to the film.

Spring Breakers was written and directed by Harmony Korine and also stars Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine. It centers on a group of four young college girls on their pursuit for a perfect vacation. Rapper Gucci Mane and James Franco also appear in the film.

The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival earlier this year. Its North American premiere was held at the Toronto Film Festival.

“Leave it to Harmony to create one of the most anticipated movies of the social media generation,” A24 said in a statement to ComingSoon.net. “His film is at once incredibly mainstream and wildly subversive. We couldn't imagine a better partner on this film than Annapurna and Megan Ellison, one of the most daring producers working in film today.”

Spring Breakers was produced by Chris Hanley, Jordan Gertner, David Zander and Charles-Marie Anthonioz. Megan Ellison of Annapurna Pictures is credited as executive producer.

“It was a very different type of role for me,” Gomez told WWD about the film back in April. “I play a religious girl named Faith. Her best friends aren’t the best influences, and they want to go to spring break but can’t afford it. So they rob a convenience store and get away with it and go on spring break.”
