The Star-studded Cast of Renfield

You may have thought that Nicolas Cage might be the only star that will bless you with his presence. But let us tell us, the cast is beyond ordinary. As a matter of fact, Hollywood A-listers are included in the cast. Though Nicolas Cage is getting all the attention for being the leader of the story, the titular character of Renfield is going to be portrayed by Nicholas Hoult whom you may have seen in the X-men movies.

We can also see Awkwafina for the role of Rebecca Quincy who is a traffic cop. Next is Ben Schwartz who is going to be featured in a supporting role. Besides, Adrian Martinez, Bess Rouss, Caroline Williams, Shohreh Aghdashloo, James Moses Black, and some other prominent stars will be there in the cast. Moreover, this horror comedy is going to be directed by none other than Chris McKay.

He is considered to be a genius when it comes to horror and comedy adaptations and is equally famous in the television and film industry. It’s interesting to watch how this gory film can become a comedy. Chris’s take is always interesting since he is also seen in science fiction movies and this can be his next big hit.

Renfield Storyline

Renfield is not all about Count Dracula. It will follow the storyline of his lackey who has been suffering for centuries. His master made his life miserable. According to the reports of January 2022, Nicholas Hoult will find the true meaning of life when he falls in love with Awkwafina’s character, Rebecca Quincy.

This traffic cop will be his main reason for finding rebels against his long-time master. A bit of a storyline that has been shared through the entire plot is still a mystery. As the release date is nearing, the trailer is expected to drop soon. It is going to be horror in a good way.  

When Robert Kirkman was asked about his work in Renfield when attending the FatMan Beyond podcast back in May 2021, he said, “We’re doing this cool movie for Universal that’s like a focus on Renfield where it’s a story about him being Dracula’s henchman and how shitty a job that is and so it’s a fun, extremely violent comedy because I’ve got a crutch and it’s violence.” 

Onset photos are already on the way and Ben Schwartz even gave a sneak peek in his Instagram profile. It is rumored that the production has wrapped up. When talking to the Variety’s Awards Circuit podcast recently in 2022, he clearly mentioned that he took inspiration from Malignant and Ringu in order to prepare for this film.

He went on record to say, “I was like, ‘What can I bring that will be different?’ Because I want it to pop in a unique way. We’ve seen it played not so well, so what can we do? And I’m thinking of really focusing on the movement of the character. You know, I saw Malignant and I thought what she did with those moves — and even Ringu with Sadako [Yamamura], I want to look at what we can explore with his movement and voice.”
