NEON DEMON: Elle Fanning To Star In Nicolas Winding Refn's Horror Flick
According to a report over at The Wrap Elle Fanning (Maleficent, Twixt) is in negotiations to star in Nicolas Winding Refn's upcoming female-driven horror film, Neon Demon. Fanning will play an aspiring model who is caught in a world of beauty and demise. 

"Elle Fanning is a super cool wonder woman and I look forward to going on a terrifying trip with her into 'The Neon Demon,'" said Refn, the acclaimed director of the "Pusher" trilogy.

Refn wrote this new film along with newcomer Mary Laws. Longtime Refn production partner Lene Børglum will produce once again under the pair's Space Rocket banner. 

Production begins in Los Angeles this March. The film was being sold by Wild Bunch and Gaumont at AFM this past Fall.

I keep trying with Refn. I really do. I have yet to see the film that persuades me he isn't simply a pretentious poseur.

Have you seen the Pusher trilogy yet? If Pusher II doesn't do anything for you, then I would throw in the towel.

Pusher II is Refn's best in my book, too. If that one doesn't work for you, you just don't like Refn. Having met the guy a few times, interviewed him, watched him work on set, etc I'd say he's definitely not a poseur, though.
