Producers had announced plans for the new installment last week. "Trainspotting" author Irvine Welsh has penned the script, with Jonas Akerlund set to direct. Akerlund is replacing the first film's director, Harmony Korine.
None of the original cast members, including Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson, are expected to return. Instead, the sequel will focus on a new batch of spring breakers as they battle Christian extremists.
"The original was wholly Harmony's creation and these producers are capitalizing on that innovative film to make money on a weak sequel," Franco said.
The 36-year-old actor then goes on to compare himself and Korine to a pair of Hollywood legends.
He claims he wrote the post in the interest of "preserving artistic creativity."
