‘Renfield’: Ben Schwartz joins Nicolas Cage in ‘Dracula’ comic adaptation

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ben Schwartz (“Sonic: The Movie”) has joined the cast of “Renfield,” a horror comic that will focus on the servant of the legendary vampire Dracula.

Without too much detail, the actor will play a mobster.

Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men: First Class”) will be the main character. Nicolas Cage (‘Mandy: Thirst for Revenge’) will play Count Dracula. The cast will also feature Awkwafina (“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”).

Chris McKay (‘Tomorrow’s War’) is in charge of the director.

The plot is based on an idea created by Robert Kirkman (“The Walking Dead”), who will be the producer of the film.

Kirkman recently revealed that the film will be fun and “extremely violent”.

Enjoy watching:

“We’re making a really cool movie for Universal [Pictures] which will focus on Renfield. It’ll be a story about him as Dracula’s servant, and we’ll show you how bad the job is. It will be a funny and extremely violent comedy. It will be very bloody.

The script is owned by Ryan Ridley (“Rick and Morty”).

In the original Bram Stoker novel, Renfield was a crazed lunatic patient who was diagnosed with insanity; but, in fact, he was a servant of Dracula. The feature film should take place in the present rather than being constructed like a period film.
