Karl Glusman Signs With WME; Joins Nic Refn’s ‘The Neon Demon’

“Stonewall” actor Karl Glusman has signed with WME and has already landed his next project signing on to Nicolas Winding Refn’s “The Neon Demon,” the female-driven horror tale starring Elle Fanning.

The pic also stars Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Abbey Lee (“Drive”), Jena Malone (“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1″), and Bella Heathcote (“Dark Shadows”) and is Refn’s follow-up to “Only God Forgives,” starring Ryan Gosling. It is being financed by Gaumont and Wild Bunch.

Plot details are unknown at this time.

Refn’s partner, Lene Borglum (“Valhalla Rising,” “Only God Forgives”), is producing via their company Space Rocket. Refn and Mary Laws penned the script.

Production is set to begin on March 30.

No distributor has been locked in yet, though Gaumont and Wild Bunch were recently at the European Film Market selling the pic for international distribution.

Glusman can be seen next in the Roland Emmerich pic “Stonewall” and in “Embers” alongside Jason Ritter.
