Actress Christina Hendricks has also signed on to be in the film, The Neon Demon.
Keanu Reeves and Christina Hendricks have joined the cast of Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon, the subversive female-driven horror tale that marks Danish helmer's follow-up to Only God Forgives.
Sold and financed by Gaumont and Wild Bunch, The Neon Demon stars Elle Fanning (Super 8). Abbey Lee (Drive), Jena Malone (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1) and Bella Heathcote (Beneath Hill 60) round out the eclectic cast of up-and-coming actresses.
Refn's partner, Lene Borglum (Valhalla Rising, Only God Forgives), is producing via their company Space Rocket. The key crew of The Neon Demon comprises Refn's regular collaborators – editor Matthew Newman and composer Cliff Martinez.
Gaumont and Wild Bunch are shopping the project at the European Film Market and have started discussions with US buyers. Production is slated to begin March 30. — Reuters
