We recently learned that Nicolas Cage (Mandy) will be playing Dracula in Universal Pictures’ upcoming Renfield movie, which will star Nicholas Hoult (Warm Bodies) in the title role. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) has also joined the cast!
Schwartz will play a mobster in the movie, which is reportedly set in the modern day and will have a comedic tone. The cast also includes Awkwafina (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings).
Based on an original pitch from Robert Kirkman, Renfield was written by Ryan Ridley (Rick and Morty) and will be directed by Chris McKay (The Tomorrow War). Plot details remain under wraps.
