The cast of The Neon Demon just keeps growing, and it added some decent star power recently.
Hot off his leading role in John Wick, Keanu Reeves has joined the cast of the subversive female-centric horror film. Joining Reeves is Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks.
The duo join star Elle Fanning and and supporting cast memebers Jena Malone, Abbey Lee and Bella Heathcote.
The Neon Demon is acclaimed director Nicholas Winding Refn’s follow up to the lukewarm revenge flick Only God Forgives. Refn is directing from a script that was co-written with Mary Laws.
I haven’tgiven up hope on Refn. While many critics and fans alike panned Only God Forgives, I still like to remember that this was the man who brought us the wonderful morality play that was Drive.
Production on The Neon Demon is set to begin March 30. No release date has been set as of yet but it is tagged to hit theaters in 2016.
