Principal photography has wrapped on Universal Pictures’ Renfield, which will officially release in theatres on April 14th, 2023!
Directed by Chris McKay (The Tomorrow War), Renfield was based on an original pitch from Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead, and is said to be a “modern-day adventure story that is comedic in tone.” Nicholas Hoult (Warm Bodies) stars in the title role opposite Nicolas Cage (Mandy) as Dracula.
The film centres on Renfield (Hoult), who has grown sick and tired of his centuries as Dracula’s lackey. The henchman finds a new lease on life and maybe even redemption when he falls for feisty, perennially angry traffic cop Rebecca Quincy (Awkwafina).
Ryan Ridley (Rick and Morty) wrote Renfield. The cast also includes Ben Schwartz, Adrian Martinez, Shohreh Aghdashloo, and Bess Rouss.
