In the meantime, we will bring you up to date with everything you need to know about the feature film directed by Chris McKay (The Tomorrow War, LEGO Batman Movie), from the script of Ryan Ridley (Rick and Morty), based on an original idea by Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead).
It is Ridley who shares the following about the tape with Total Film:
“This is a much stranger soufflé than anyone expected. It’s an action horror and it’s a workplace comedy. It’s a Dracula movie about Renfield.”
the movie is a “modern-day adventure with a comedic undertone,” which offers a twist on the well-known story of Bram Stoker’s classic novel, with Renfield realizing that he is in a toxic relationship with Dracula, and needs to escape it. Will he make it?
The cast is completed Awkwafina (The Farewell, Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings), Ben Schwartz (Sonic, The Afterparty), y Adrian Martinez (Focus, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty).
“In this modern monster tale of Dracula’s loyal servant, Nicholas Hoult stars as Renfield, the tortured sidekick to history’s most narcissistic boss, Dracula (Oscar® winner Nicolas Cage). Renfield is forced to procure his master’s prey and follow his every command, no matter how demeaning. But now, after centuries of servitude, Renfield is ready to see if there is life outside the shadow of the Prince of Darkness. If only he could figure out how to end his codependency.”
The film is produced by Skybound Entertainment members Kirkman, David Alpert, Bryan Furst, and Sean Furst, and director McKay.
