Nicolas Cage Is Dracula In The Trailer For ‘Renfield’
by Tito W. James
Nicholas Hoult stars as Renfield, the tortured aide to history’s most narcissistic boss, Dracula (Nicolas Cage). 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.
Renfield is directed by Chris McKay (The LEGO Batman Movie) with a screenplay by Ryan Ridley (Rick and Morty) based on an original idea by Robert Kirkman (Invincible) — but frankly you had me at the idea of Nicolas Cage playing Dracula. There’s a disappointing lack of Cage in the trailer. Hopefully, the final product will deliver what audiences really want to see.
Renfield will hit theaters April 14th.
