Shooting continues in St. Petersburg, Florida on the set of Harmony Korine's dark and twisted sex comedy Spring Breakers. Today, we get more photos from the on-location shoot, this time of star James Franco engaged in a topless hip-hop battle against his dreadlocked rival, whom he springs four girls (Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Rachel Korine, Ashley Benson) out of jail to later kill. Check out his signature "Purp Shake-Purp Shake!!" necklace (and if you were hoping to see more girls in bikinis, make sure to eyeball the pics closely as there's some booty to be found here).
