"Drive" and "Only God Forgives" director Nicolas Winding Refn will call the shots on the upcoming horror film "The Neon Demon" says ScreenDaily.
At one point the film was titled "I Walk with the Dead" back when Polly Stenham was attached to write the script-now the trade said that Mary Laws, a first-time screenwriter out of Yale University co-wrote the script with Refn
The inspiration for the flick came about because--“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,” Refn said in a statement.
The female lead will be announced shortly with further cast members to be unveiled later this year.
Production is slated to begin in Los Angeles in the first part of next year ahead of a 2016 release.
