Modern monster movie Renfield is sinking its teeth into theatres on April 14th, and Total Film has shared some fun new images from the flick, including the one of Dracula (Nicolas Cage) above!
Nicholas Hoult (The Menu) stars as the titular Renfield, Dracula’s loyal yet tortured servant. “Renfield is forced to procure his master’s prey and do his every bidding, no matter how debased. But now, after centuries of servitude, Renfield is ready to see if there’s a life outside the shadow of The Prince of Darkness. If only he can figure out how to end his codependency.”
“This is a much weirder soufflé than anyone’s expecting,” Renfield writer Ryan Ridley (Rick and Morty) told Total Film. “It’s an action horror and it’s a workplace comedy. It’s a Dracula movie about Renfield.”
Awkwafina (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), Ben Schwartz (Sonic the Hedgehog), and Adrian Martinez (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) co-star in Renfield. The film, which was directed by Chris McKay (The Tomorrow War), was based on an original pitch from Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead.
