Nicholas Winding Refn‘s new horror flick, Neon Demon, has found its female lead in the form of Maleficent actress Elle Fanning. Young Fanning has bagged the role and in doing so, has added another impressive collaboration with filmmakers to her CV. With other roles in films like Super 8, Ginger & Rosa, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Fanning is making quite the name for herself.
With other titles like Drive and Only God Forgives under his belt, Nicholas Winding Refn’s new horror promises to be a sophisticated and visually compelling movie with Fanning playing a young, aspiring model who gets caught up in a world of beauty and demise. Although there’s no release date as of yet, Neon Demon is not expected to come out any earlier than the end of the year.
