First Look: Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘The Neon Demon‘
Director Nicloas Winding Refn’s (Only God Forgives) new thriller ‘The Neon Demon‘ offers up its first images via Screen Daily. The film will be Refn’s 12th as director, and is said to centre around an aspiring model named Jesse (Elle Fanning) who makes the move to L.A, “where her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has”.
Refn’s dark and stylish swipe at culture and humanity brings together Elle Fanning, Jena Malone, Karl Glusman, Bella Heathcote, Abbey Lee, Christina Hendricks, Desmond Harrington and Keanu Reeves on screen.
Despite the film only just wrapping its shoot in Los Angeles, interest has been growing at this years Cannes Film Festival. Post production will kick into gear later this month ahead of the films March 2016 UK release date.
