BERLIN– 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 (“Dark Shadows”) 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 EFM and have started discussions with U.S. buyers.

The two Paris-based companies teamed on Refn’s last film, “Only God Forgives,” which world premiered in competition at Cannes.

Production is slated to begin March 30.
