"Spring Breakers" has been one of the more buzzed-about movies of 2013, but arguably the best part of the film was the surprising performance of James Franco as "Alien," a St. Petersburg gangsta obsessed with all the s**t he has.
Infamous rapper Riff Raff has repeatedly claimed that he was not only the inspiration for Alien, but that he was offered the role before Franco, and though one look at the guy makes the "inspiration" claims kind of difficult to argue, director Harmony Korine has denied any suggestions of Riff Raff's potential casting. Their disagreement has been, at times, contentious. (Riff Raff even "reviewed" the movie for us, as part of our Rappers Review Movies series.)
So they're writing a book together now, of course, as first noted by the Hollywood Reporter. The book will reportedly revolve around Korine's interpretations of Riff Raff's tweets, which are often unintelligible, to put it generously.
