2. Harmony Korine
It comes as no surprise that the bad boy of cinema is a fan of the herb. Harmony Korine began his career writing the screenplay for Kids, a grim film about drugs, sex and New York City youth. It was the film that launched the careers of Rosario Dawson and Chloë Sevigny.
Today, he’s best known for Spring Breakers, which famously stars Selena Gomez and James Franco.
Yet Korine isn’t only interested in the dark side of ‘drug culture.’ His latest film, The Beach Bum is a “stoner comedy” starring Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron.
But the 420 won’t only be on screen: Korine wants viewers to smell marijuana in the movie theatre. As reported by High Times, Korine envisions real marijuana smoke and live bongo drums as part of the movie experience. And it looks like Korine’s dream may actually come true, at least in states where recreational marijuana is legal.
“We already have about thirty rooms that have accepted,” Korine explains.
The only thing we know—and need to know—about Korine’s The Beach Bum is that it involves a lot of marijuana.
