“Dexter” star Desmond Harrington has joined the cast of Nicolas Winding Refn’s horror film “The Neon Demon,” with shooting set to start in Los Angeles.
“Neon Demon” stars Elle Fanning along with Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Abbey Lee (“Drive”), Jena Malone and Bella Heathcote (“Dark Shadows”). It’s Refn’s follow-up to “Only God Forgives,” starring Ryan Gosling.
Refn and Mary Laws penned the script, which is about an aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles, only to have her youth and vitality devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women.
Refn’s partner, Lene Borglum (“Valhalla Rising,” “Only God Forgives”), is producing via their company Space Rocket in association with Wild Bunch and Gaumont.
