Yep, this looks like a Nicolas Winding Refn film.
Nicholas Winding Refn’s 11th film comes out sometime this summer and as usual he’s gained a formidable cast with Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone, Keanu Reeves, Alessandro Nivola and Desmond Harrington all onboard. It will also almost assuredly be electric.
The synopsis is as follows: Jesse, an aspiring model, moves to Los Angeles, where her vitality and youth are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means to get what she has.
Knowing Refn’s penchant for violence in his films and given that THE NEON DEMON is a horror film, I wonder if they’re being literal when they say, “devour.” Looking at the headline photo, with Fanning doused in blood, I wouldn’t be surprised.
Two posters have been released and in late Refn fashion, they’re pink. They’re stylized already released photos, but that doesn’t make them any less impressive and fun.
