Variety reported yesterday, May 17, that Pussy Riot's Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina are heading to Cannes this week to chat with “Spring Breakers: Second Coming” director Jonas Akerlund, as well as several producers, about having a role in the film. “The fiction of ‘Spring Breakers’ never met with the reality of Pussy Riots — until now," producer Chris Hanley said to Variety.

It appears that Pussy Riot was unaware of these plans, and that these colliding worlds are not nearly as likely as the "Spring Breakers" crew made it seem. "We're super surprised to hear this crazy stuff on any kind of talks about us and the Spring Breakers. Looks like somebody's cheesy joke!" Pussy Riot tweeted out, also pointing out that the only breaks they get are from one prison term to the next.
