The Keanu Reeves resurgence continues! Reeves, who kicked ass in John Wick, and starred in Eli Roth’s highly successful Sundance horror Knock Knock, is joining Christina Hendricks (“Mad Men,” Drive) in Nicolas Refn’s The Neon Demon, the subversive horror tale that marks Danish helmer’s follow-up to Only God Forgives, says Variety.
Elle Fanning, Abbey Lee, Jena Malone and Bella Heathcote round up the cast.
Fanning will play an aspiring model who is caught in a world of beauty and demise.
Lee’s role is absolutely bonkers as she’ll play a cool ringleader that other girls want to follow. Envious, emotionally unstable and a tad delusional, she shows her true maniacal colors in the end. After first creeping Jesse out by sucking the blood out of her wound, she ends up killing and later eating Jesse to absorb her virginal youth and beauty.
Refn’s partner, Lene Borglum (Valhalla Rising, Only God Forgives) is producing via their joint company, Space Rocket.
