Fans of Nicolas Winding Refn’s work, such as Only God Forgives, Valhalla Rising, and Bronson, should be happy to hear that the Danish The Neon Demon, a tale with a young female driven cast set in the City of Angels (Los Angeles). It’s a movie that Refn has been itching to shoot since Drive.is seriously moving forward with his next endeavor,
One morning, I woke and realized I was both surrounded and dominated by women, said Refn. Strangely, a sudden urge was planted in me to make a horror film about vicious beauty. After making Drive and falling madly in love with the electricity of Los Angeles, I knew I had to return to tell the story of The Neon Demon.
Earlier last month, we got really excited to hear that Elle Fanning ( and Maleficent) is lined up to star as an “aspiring model who is caught in a world of beauty and demise” in The Neon Demon. Since then, the cast has kept growing. Growing to the point that Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone, and Bella Heathcote have all joined the cast of The Neon Demon.
Refn will begin shooting the horror movie next month in LA. The Neon Demon is currently slated for release in 2016.
