"Spring Breakers: The Second Coming" won't feature the same cast (Ashley Benson, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco) as the first installment, but will instead showcase a new group of girls battling against a group of militant Christians trying to convert them.
The first film garnered a bit of a cult following, and grossed $31 million worldwide. Reviews were mixed, but Franco's performance as Alien was especially praised.
Irvine Welsh ("Trainspotting," "Filth") will pen the script, and Jonas Akerlund ("Spun," "Small Apartments") will direct.
Screen Daily first reported the news.
