Harmony Korine has confirmed that his next directorial effort will be a hood gangster flick called: The Trap. The film which will revolve around a “multi-generational family of criminals in the South“ is all set to go into production next year. Not much has been revealed about the plot, but the cult-filmmaker did tell Bullett Media that audiences can expect a “sprawling”, “intense” “revenge movie”. Gucci Mane may be unavailable for this next one but according to Korine, his most ambitious project yet will still feature a “substantial cast”.
Unleashing Spring Breakers on the moviegoing public in 2012 was Harmony Korine’s way of telling the world that he wants to escape the cult-status justifiably thrust upon his eclectic output. While the film did gross more than your typical cult-flick most of this can probably be attributed to high concept casting choices and viral marketing. The film itself was generally praised by critics, but still alienated mainstream audiences who aren’t used Harmony’s unique point-of-view.
It’s definitely going to be interesting to see how Korine tackles this next one. Whether he continues down the road to commercial viability or returns to his old idiosyncratic ways one thing’s for sure: this isn’t the last we’ll hear of The Trap.
