Australian supermodel Abbey Lee is wanted to co-star in the upcoming horror film "The Neon Demon" says Deadline.
"Drive" and "Only God Forgives" director Nicolas Winding Refn will call the shots.
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 says
Lee is negotiating to play the role of Sarah, the cool ringleader of a
maniacal group of models.
Elle Fanning will also star as an aspiring model who gets caught up in all of the mayhem
Production is slated to begin in Los Angeles at the end of March.
Lee has also filmed roles in George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road" and Alex Proyas' "Gods Of Egypt".
