Drive Director Nicolas Winding Refn Unveils New Horror Film The Neon Demon

3 November 2014 9:12 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At this point in his career, Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn and the thriller genre have almost become synonymous. Building upon his work on Bronson and Valhalla Rising, the director struck a chord with the neon-drenched Drive in 2011, before following up with last year’s somewhat divisive Only God Forgives.

Now, Winding Refn is currently developing I Walk With The Dead (described as yet another thriller taking place in Miami) due to release at some point in 2015. But that’s not the only stylish thriller we’ll see from the Danish helmer next year, as Winding Refn has announced his latest project, The Neon Demon.

“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,” the director said in a statement.

According to Deadline, the film will be a female-led »

3 November 2014 8:42 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When we last spoke with Nicolas Winding Refn, he remained coy about the status of his much-talked-about female-led horror film. "It depends on my mood waking up that day," he stated about whether or not it's his next film. And it looks like the mood strikes him. THR reports that the movie, previously referred to as "I Walk With The Dead," is now titled "The Neon Demon," it will be Refn's next film, and production will start in the spring. While Polly Stenham was attached to write the script at one point, the trade said that Mary Laws, a first-time screenwriter out of Yale, has co-written the project with Refn. The story will find the director returning to Los Angeles to tell a story that he describes as "a horror film about vicious beauty." Longtime collaborator Cliff Martinez will score the film. Philippe Le Sourd (Wong Kar-Wai's "The Grand Master") will be the Dp. »

Nicolas Winding Refn and Liv Corfixen Talk My Life Directed Documentary, Running Out of Money During Filming, Dodging Expectations, and More

2 November 2014 8:42 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn will always be divisive yet I don't think he minds.  He loves to shirk off what you expect from him, which can be agitating to people that latch onto one or two of his films and think they know what they are getting when they see his latest film.  The most recent example of this is Only God Forgives, which was Refn's follow-up collaboration with Ryan Gosling after the critically and commercially successful Drive.  A new documentary called My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn is from Refn's wife, Liv Corfixen, and follows the struggles to get the film made and how arduous his process is.  It's a documentary that truly puts you in the heart of the filmmaking process and what it takes to balance being a director on set and having your family live with you for six months on location in Bangkok.  What »

10 Amazing Unmade Steven Spielberg Films

1 November 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Is there a more versatile, driven and inventive director working in Hollywood today than Steven Spielberg? If you said Nicolas Winding Refn then you’d be right, but there’s no way you could entertain both your mother, your baby nephew and your rebellious cousin at the same time with Only God Forgives. Spielberg’s CV, meanwhile, features movies that run the gamut from kid-friendly adventure (Tintin) to serious adult drama (Munich) to whatever The Terminal is.

Over his long career has rarely gone a couple of years without putting something out, in that time begin responsible for inventing the modern blockbuster; creating the Indiana Jones franchise; revolutionising special effects; making the best Philip K Dick adaptation since Blade Runner; and creating an intensely powerful film about the holocaust.

With the rate he gets through them, you wonder if he has time for anything else. Apparently he does, »

Radio 1's Zane Lowe re-scores Drive: A brave gamble, but did it pay off?

30 October 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Of all the great movies the Oscars have shunned over the years, Drive's snub in 2012 was a tough one to take.

Ryan Gosling stars as the Hollywood stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver in his most mesmerising performance since he was a Jewish neo-Nazi in 2001's The Believer. Carey Mulligan is the struggling single mum who Gosling falls for, and a between-Breaking Bad seasons Bryan Cranston plays his mechanic partner in crime.

Nicolas Winding Refn's direction is suave and daring; he follows the blood, sweat and tears of The Driver's journey with total badassness and ends up with something in between Taxi Driver and Michael Mann's Thief... And then there's the soundtrack. What a soundtrack.

So when Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe announced that he was curating a score of new music for the film masterpiece, you can understand the anger and confusion it sparked. But »
