While the film is more focused on its female characters, Nicolas Winding Refn continues to add men in supporting roles for his new horror thriller, The Neon Demon. Karl Glusman is the latest recruit. Elle Fanning, Abbey Lee, Jena Malone, Christina Hendricks, Keanu Reeves and Bella Heathcote are board for the film, which sees Fanning as a young woman in Los Angeles who attempts to conquer the modelling world, only to be faced with a terrifying force of beauty and death. And that’s literally all that has been revealed about the plot so far, with Refn typically circumspect about his plans. He has said this about the project though: “One morning I woke and realised I was both surrounded and dominated by women. Strangely, a sudden urge was planted in me to make a horror film about vicious beauty.”With a script by the director and Mary Laws, The Neon Demon »
Given his track record, Nicolas Winding Refn honestly has my money as soon as he announces a new project. With gripping character study Bronson, stylish modern classic Drive (possibly my favorite movie of all-time) and the hypnotic Only God Forgives under his belt, the filmmaker is one of the most unique voices working in cinema today. And judging by new tidbits about his upcoming horror movie The Neon Demon, that’s not about to change anytime soon.
While being interviewed by Dazed and Confused last month about her documentary My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn, the filmmaker’s wife, Liv Corfixen, let slip some fascinating details about The Neon Demon‘s inspirations – including that the film is inspired by Countess Elizabeth Báthory, a notoriously cruel 16th-century countess who was rumored to bathe in the blood of local virgins. Báthory tortured these young girls and murdered them in hopes of »

The only official information we have on Nicolas Winding Refn's next film, The Neon Demon, is that it's a horror tale with a young female driven cast, written by Refn and Mary Laws. That's not much to go on, but now Dazed Digital and What Culture (via The Playlist) reveal some new information after speaking with Refn's wife and director of My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn, Liv Corfixen. First we learn the story was inspired by the tale of Countess Bathory, who inspired many a vampire myth with sadistic rituals that included bathing in the blood of virgins. The Los Angeles-set movie is said to be a bit like the survival thriller Alive (1993) meets Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999). Corfixen isn't entirely sure what it's about, at least thematically, adding, "I don't know yet. Maybe it's about spirituality but I'm not sure," while revealing he's been purchasing Christian movies of late. »

Filming starts this month on Nicolas Winding Refn's "The Neon Demon," with Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone, Bella Heathcote, Keanu Reeves and Abbey Lee starring in the film. But there hasn't been much in the way of plot details. We do know that the script was co-written by Mary Laws, and that the film is set in Los Angeles, but outside of that things get fuzzy. However, things are becoming slightly more focused. Last month, Dazed And Confused caught up with Liv Corfixen, Refn's wife and the director of "My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn," who revealed that the film is inspired by the tale of Countess Báthory, the serial killing sixteenth century countess who apparently bathed in the blood of virgins to stay young (the last detail is apocryphal, but makes for a good yarn). Moreover, the movie will apparently be like a mix of the »

Some more experienced people are struggling to recapture the praise and connections they once held in their professional and personal lives, as their talent and bonds irrevocably begin to diminish. Meanwhile, others who are first beginning to pursue their dreams may squander their goals if they’re also stuck contending with the issues that have already wronged them in their lives. This exploration into how young adults revert to manipulate those around them is presented between the main character, the formerly acclaimed Hollywood screenwriter, Keith Michaels (Hugh Grant), and the sometimes antagonist and aspiring scribe and student, Karen (Bella Heathcote), who he recently began teaching, in the romantic comedy, ‘The Rewrite.’ [ Read More ]

Nicolas Winding Refn’s next venture, The Neon Demon, is set to explore a new cinematic terrain for the esoteric director.

The trade doesn’t offer any further details on the characters that the four actors look set to play, but the quartet will join Maleficent‘s Elle Fanning, toplining the project as “an aspiring model who is caught in a world of beauty and demise,” and Abbey Lee, as “a cool ringleader that other girls want to follow. Envious, emotionally unstable and a tad delusional, she shows her true maniacal colors in the end. »

Here's the deal with Nicolas Winding Refn's next movie The Neon Demon: we know nearly nothing about it. Something about an aspiring model whose career takes a bad turn but even that hasn't been confirmed since Refn has been particularly tight lipped about the project.
We do know that Elle Fanning and Abbey Lee were already slated to star in the movie, likely playing models, and now Refn has populated some more of the movie with a great bunch of folks namely Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone and Bella Heathcote.

Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone and Bella Heathcote have all signed on to star in director Nicolas Winding Refn's horror tale The Neon Demon, joining recently-added cast members Elle Fanning and Abbey Lee.

Nicolas Winding Refn will reunite with several key behind-the-scenes collaborators on The Neon Demon, including composer Cliff Martinez, editor Matthew Newman and director of photography Philippe LeSourd. The director is also producing alongside Lene Borglum, with Gaumont and Wild Bunch providing financing, while selling the project to international buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin, with discussions also under way for domestic distribution.

You might not remember, but a few years back, Nicolas Winding Refn looked to team up with Keanu Reeves for "Jekyll," a modern retelling of "Jekyll and Hyde." That project fell apart over scheduling issues and other reasons, but it looks like they've kept in touch and found something else to collaborate on. Reeves, "Drive" star Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone, Bella Heathcote, and Abbey Lee have all joined Elle Fanning in "The Neon Demon." For now, the lid is on the plot details, and all we know is that it's a female-driven horror flick. Refn has once again tapped Cliff Martinez to score the picture, with Dp Philippe Le Sourd (“The Grand Master”) lensing. Production starts on March 30th and this cast has put our anticipation for the flick sky high. [Variety] Mia Wasikowska and Guy Pearce are saddling up for the western thriller "Brimstone." Directed by Martin Koolhoven, the story follows "Liz, »
