Harmony Korine

After delivering the over-the-top and acclaimed Spring Breakers, director Harmony Korine is moving on to a new crime thriller. THR reports Korine will be at the helm The Trap, a project described as a Southern revenge thriller that the filmmaker also wrote. In addition, Korine has an interesting duo lined up to star in the film with Benicio del Toro and Jamie Foxx take the two lead roles. The story follows two childhood friends, now in the mid-to-late 30s, with one becoming very successful and doing well for himself and the other spending most of his life in jail. And these friends are about to be reunited, but not happily. Read on!

The successful friend is having a big night of recognition for some kind of achievement on the same day the criminal friend is release from jail, and the former inmate is looking to get even. Sounds simply, but Korine's not one to shoot generic films, so there must be something more to the script. Production is slated to begin early next year, but there's no word on when it might get release in theaters. For me, Korine is the selling point for a film like this, because otherwise this would just feel like another typical crime thriller. And with talented actors like Foxx and del Toro in the leads, this could be great.

Acclaimed Spring Breakers? So you're telling me I'm part of the minority of people that thought that movie was unadulterated dog shit?

Not a huge Korine fan, but I really love both Gummo and Spring Breakers. Let's hope this one's great as well.
