Skrillex To Soundtrack Film Starring James Franco

    We heard last week that dubstep juggernaut Skrillex was in the studio with ASAP Rocky working on some new music. Now it’s been revealed that Skrillex will be soundtracking a new James Franco flick called Spring Breakers. The new film will be directed by cult-weirdo Harmony Korine.

    The information was revealed in a Pitchfork interview last week with musical director Randall Poster. In the interview he revealed how he came about to discover Skrillex:

    “I’m working on Harmony Korine’s movie Spring Breakers now and Skrillex is doing original music for us. I had heard of Skrillex, but I wasn’t watching it that closely. And Harmony, who I’ve worked with forever, sent me a link to some Skrillex YouTubes, and I saw one had 54 million hits – I thought he had somehow figured out a way to manipulate the numbers. And then it dawns on you: There are kids that are never going to buy a record. They’re just going to play songs on YouTube. “

    The comedic film is tentatively scheduled for release in Spring of 2013. [Hypetrak]
