Christina Hendricks is the latest knockout to join the cast of The Neon Demon, an L.A. based satire about cannibalistic cat-walkers co-written and directed by Nicolas Refn (Drive). Co-starring with Hendricks are Keanu Reeves, Elle Fanning, Jena Malone, model Abbey Lee and Bella Heathcote.
The Neon Demon follows a group of supermodels as they turn to cannibalism and voodoo to maintain their looks. Hendricks’ role has not been identified, but considering she’s a lot bigger than the other girls chances are she either plays a cop or is the girls’ leader, eating the bigger portions of their victims.
Hendricks will next be seen in actor Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River and in French director Gilles Paquet-Brenner’s English-language debut Dark Places, an adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best selling 2009 novel. She plays troubled strippers in both films. The Neon Demon rolls camera March 30.
