Nicolas Winding Refn is currently in post-production on his next stylish thriller, The Neon Demon, which hits theaters this year and boasts an incredible cast, including Drive star Christina Hendricks. But the ever-busy director is already lining up his next project, which will team him with two of the writers behind the James Bond franchise and take him back to Asia, the setting of his divisive thriller Only God Forgives.

Nicolas Winding Refn’s highly-anticipated follow-up to the divisive Only God Forgives began filming this year in Los Angeles, and while there’s been a considerable amount of interest in The Neon Demon, it’s taken a while for a studio to snatch up the distribution rights. Amazon has stepped forward, adding Refn’s latest to their growing slate of exclusive releases and giving the film a 2016 release date. In addition, we have a new photo from the upcoming film, featured above.

One of our most anticipated upcoming projects is Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon, the director’s follow-up to Drive and Only God Forgives. In keeping with the aesthetic of those films, the first images from his new horror project feature a lovely Elle Fanning doused in neon lighting and dripping with blood. It’s almost too painful to know we probably won’t see this movie until 2016.

Nicolas Winding Refn’s next film already had us stoked—a female-driven horror film set in Hollywood from the director of ‘Drive’ and ‘Only God Forgives’ already sounds pretty amazing, but apparently it gets even better: the film has just added ‘Mad Men’'s Christina Hendricks and everyone’s current favorite badass, Keanu Reeves.

Elle Fanning began her career in the shadow of her older sister Dakota, already a star from films like ‘I Am Sam’ and ‘Man on Fire.’ In recent years though, she’s given the elder Fanning a run for her money, turning in strong performances in blockbusters like ‘Maleficent’ (she really looked like she was sleeping!) and working with directors like Francis Ford Coppola (‘Twixt’), Cameron Crowe (‘We Bought a Zoo’), and Sally Potter (‘Ginger & Rosa’). To that impressive list of filmmakers you can now add another big name: Nicolas Winding Refn, as TheWrap reports that Elle Fanning is currently “in negotiations” to star in Refn’s next project, a horror movie called ‘The Neon Demon.’

Over the summer, Matthew McConaughey starred in some strange Lincoln car commercials helmed by ‘Drive’ and ‘Only God Forgives’ director Nicolas Winding Refn. The commercials were so prominent and odd that Jim Carrey memorably starred in satirical versions of them on ‘SNL,’ pulling off a rather impressive McConaughey impression. And if those previous commercials weren’t enough for you, McConaughey and Refn are at it again, with two more ads for Lincoln.

Hot off the premiere of 'Only God Forgives' at the Cannes film festival comes word that the film's director Nicolas Winding Refn might be helming the next James Bond film. Does this mean we'll get a little appearance from Ryan Gosling in a future 007 flick?

Heading into the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, ‘Only God Forgives’ floated near the top of our must-see list because it marked the next collaboration between ‘Drive’ director Nicolas Winding Refn and his brooding star, Ryan Gosling. We knew little about the film beyond the fact that it takes places in the seedy, sleazy world of Thailand’s kick-boxing community. And Gosling’s handsome face was going to get kicked around … a lot.
What are the critics saying about Refn’s latest work? Some are warming up to it. Others are harshly dismissing it. Either way, it is the talk of the festival today.
