GAUMONT & WILD BUNCH encounter THE NEON DEMON …with
AMAZON STUDIOS in the US.

AMAZON STUDIOS has acquired Nicolas Winding Refn’s anticipated THE NEON DEMON and will release it theatrically Stateside next summer.

“The Neon Demon” is being jointly handled by Gaumont and Wild Bunch, who previously joined forces on Refn’s last film “Only God Forgives,” which competed at Cannes Film Festival in 2013. Gaumont and Wild Bunch co-financed and will co-distribute “The Neon Demon.”

The Neon Demon” centers on an aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles where her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will go to any lengths to get what she has.

Co-written by Mary Laws and Refn, “The Neon Demon” stars Elle Fanning, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks and Jena Malone, Abbey Lee, Bela Heathcoat.

Speaking about the genesis of the film, Refn said, “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.”

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.”

Refn’s partner, Lene Borglum (“Valhalla Rising,” “Only God Forgives”) produced under their Danish banner Space Rocket.

Refn won best director at Cannes in 2011 with Ryan-Gosling starrer “Drive” which has become a near-cult movie and a major critical success.

The Neon Demon” brings together Refn’s regular creative team: Editor Matthew Newman and composer Cliff Martinez. “The Rover” cinematographer Natasha Braier completes the key crew.

The deal was negotiated by Gaumont ‘s Cecile Gaget and WildBunch ‘s Vincent Maraval/Carole Baraton on behalf of the director.

Amazon Studios was launched in June to acquire original movies for theatrical release and early-window distribution on Amazon Prime Instant Video. “The Neon Demon” is one of the first acquisitions scored by the banner. Their first release will be Spike Lee ‘s pic next month.
