Nicolas Winding Refn is going to tackle three themes in his upcoming film, The Neon Demon: beauty, obsession, and evil. These aren’t entirely new themes for Refn, as they’ve always been present in some form or another in his previous films, but he will be much more direct with how he treats them in The Neon Demon. From what we know, it’s a female-centricfilm that Refn has been itching to shoot in Los Angeles since the completion of Drive. In fact, principal photography is nearly complete, and Refn has decided to tease his little horror masterpiece with the reveal of two new photos.
Directed by visionary Danish, Nicolas Winding Refn , The Neon Demon stars Elle Fanning (Maleficent), Jena Malone (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1), Karl Glusman (Stonewall), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road), Desmond Harrington (Dexter, Gossip Girl) Christina Hendricks (Drive), and Keanu Reeves (John Wick, The Matrix franchise).
Once filming is entirely complete, we’ll make sure to drop another update here on.
