Renfield, the upcoming vampire comedy horror film directed by Chris McKay, is generating buzz as its release date approaches. In a new featurette exclusively revealed by Collider, co-stars Nicholas Hoult and Nicolas Cage praise each other’s performances in the Universal monster movie. The two actors clearly had a great time working together to bring the iconic characters of Dracula and his loyal servant Renfield to life in a fresh and exciting way. Fans of horror and comedy alike are eagerly anticipating the film’s release.
In the article, Hoult speaks highly of Cage’s dedication to the role and willingness to fully embrace the bloody and fun nature of the film. Cage, who has a long history of taking on diverse and challenging roles, praises Hoult’s vulnerable and soulful approach to acting, as well as his impressive comedic skills which he compares to those of Charlie Chaplin. While the reception of Renfield remains to be seen, both stars are committed to making it a special and memorable film.
Directed by Chris McKay, Renfield is a modern take on the classic tale of Dracula and his loyal servant Renfield. In this film, Renfield is portrayed as a victim of a toxic and abusive relationship with his powerful boss, Dracula. The movie is a sequel to the 1931 Dracula film and features a “pop art” version of the iconic vampire, paying homage to Christopher Lee’s portrayal while also adding a comedic twist. The clashes between Renfield, played by Nicholas Hoult, and Dracula, played by Nicolas Cage, are sure to provide plenty of laughs as the servant tries to break free from his master’s control.
