Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks Join Cast of Nicolas Refn’s ‘The Neon Demon’

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.
