Following Cannes-competing “Only God Forgives,” Gaumont and Wild Bunch are set to re-team on Nicolas Winding Refn’s “The Neon Demon.”
The two Paris-based powerhouses will co-finance and co-distribute the movie, kicking off pre-sales at the AFM.
A horror tale toplined by a soon-to-be-announced female star, “The Neon Demon” is penned by Refn and Mary Laws.
“One morning I woke and realized I was both surrounded and dominated by women. Strangely, a sudden urge was planted in me to make a horror film about vicious beauty,” said Refn about the origins of the movie. “After making ‘Drive’ and falling madly in love with the electricity of Los Angeles, I knew I had to return to tell the story of ‘The Neon Demon.’”
