If Mykki Blanco gets her way, she might be joining the next-level cast of Harmony Korine's latest film. It's a revenge thriller called the The Trap and it's said to be the cult director's most ambitious work to date. Set to star James Franco, Idris Elba, Benicio Del Toro, Robert Pattinson and Al Pacino himself, it's going to be big.

Blanco put out the word on twitter: "sum1 tell Harmony Korine I want in on The Trap". Even if the request wasn't too serious, this collaboration isn't far outside the realm of possibility, considering Korine's penchant for pop culture. The director's candy hued hit Spring Breakers featured the ATL Twins, brothers from Atlanta who became a viral sensation. Korine even tweaked the finished script to work the pair into the film, playing James Franco's drug-dealing henchmen. Fingers-crossed Mykki catches the director's eye.
