We may still get Robert Pattinson as an uzi wielding surfer in The Trap

Eric Kohn from IndieWire sat down with Harmony Korine to talk about The Beach Bum and the subject of The Trap came up and this is what Harmony had to say:

“The Trap” Could Still Happen

Following the surprise commercial success of “Spring Breakers,” Korine initially had a different project in mind: “The Trap,” a very different sort of Florida-based story that at one point had Jamie Foxx and Benicio del Toro attached to star. But a series of complications arose during the pre-production stage. “This fucking thing fell apart,” Korine said. “I was like a month away from making it in Miami.” He described the project as “a gangster film … about a rapper who lives in Miami and goes to prison. It’s super violent.” After securing financing for the picture, “one of the actors had some issues, and a scheduling conflict,” Korine said. “Rather than get depressed or freak out, I needed to make something right away, so I wrote something that was the opposite of that. I felt like making a comedy, I felt like laughing, I wanted to do something that was more of a stoner vibe. And that was when I wrote ‘The Beach Bum.’”

He still thinks “The Trap” has potential. “I’m going to go back and make it,” he said. But when pressed to describe his next project, Korine diverted to an idea that lit up the room, even as his playful demeanor left his real intentions unclear. “I want to remake that movie ‘Cocoon,’” he said. Then he changed his mind and suggested that a “Children of Corn” remake was on his docket instead. From the audience, someone shouted, “‘Children of the Cocoon’!” Korine smiled. “That’s a great title,” he said.

To be honest I’m not even sure if Rob would still be attached (it’s still listed on his IMDbPro page, but there’s a part of me that’s been waiting to see uzi-wielding surfer Max for quite some time.  Development is currently “unknown” as at 11 July 2017.  Franco hasn’t been linked to the project since 2016.  Gucci Mane was added in 2016.  Details on our The Trap film page HERE
