James Franco in 'Spring Breakers'

James Franco’s ‘Consider This Sh*t’ ad campaign pushing the Academy to nominate the multi-hyphenate for his portrayal of cornrow-wearing drug dealer, Alien, in ‘Spring Breaker’s has only just begun, yet Franco is already discussing the possibility of a sequel.

Speaking with MTV News, Franco admitted that he would be interested in a second film and the opportunity to reprise his role, but he isn’t confident director and writer, Harmony Korine, would want to be involved.

“I mean, Harmony and I are certainly going to do something else together. I don’t think Harmony really wants do to Spring Breakers 2. He’s not the one who’s been talking about it,” he explained.

“Although, when we were making the movie, there was talk of a prequel. My character and Gucci Mane’s character [Big Arch] were supposed to have been former friends, so we at one time talked about, ‘What was that like? Let’s make that movie!’ So there’s that. There’s a prequel version, or there’s the version of Alien’s friend or something. I don’t know.”

There has also been talk that if Korine chooses not to return, Franco might take over.

“They've asked me if I'm interested. I don’t know. It’s really just talk.”

Catch James Franco next, in well… everything.
