Amazon Studios has just acquired Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest film, The Neon Demon, which means fans of the Danish can start looking forward to the release date of his anticipated film. And we know for a fact many of you are waiting to know.
Although there’s no specific date set in stone yet, Amazon Studios is targeting a theatrical release in summer of 2016 and afterwards an early-window distribution on Amazon Prime. To help make the news a little more interesting, a brand new photo of star Elle Fanning has also been shared to tease the film, which is about “vicious beauty.”
‘The Neon Demon’ centers on an aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles where her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will go to any lengths to get what she has.
Speaking about the genesis of the film, Refn said,
One morning I woke and realized I was both surrounded and dominated by women. Strangely, a sudden urge was planted in me to make a horror film about vicious beauty.
Co-written by Mary Laws and Refn, The Neon Demon also stars Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone, Abbey Lee, and Bela Heathcoat. The film is one of the first acquisitions scored by Amazon Studios. Their first release will be Spike Lee‘s pic next month.
