Nicolas Cage to play Dracula in Chris McKay's Renfield movie

It was announced earlier this year that director Chris McKay is directing a monster film called Renfield, about Count Dracula's henchmen RM Renfield. While it was earlier announced that actor Nicholas Hoult would be playing the titular character, it is now revealed that actor Nicolas Cage will play Dracula in the film.

Renfield is a character that debuted in Bram Stoker's original Dracula novel. In that story, Renfield was an inmate at an asylum who was thought to be suffering from delusions that compelled him to eat live creatures in the hopes of obtaining immortality, but in fact, was a servant of the popular vampire.

The new film has a script written by Ryan Ridley (Rick and Morty) and is based on an original story written by Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead).

The plotline, release date and other details of the cast are yet unknown. Filmmaker McKay, who is well-known for directing The Tomorrow War and The Lego Batman Movie, is also producing Renfield.

The film will be produced by Skybound Entertainment’s film team, including Kirkman, David Alpert, Bryan Furst and Sean Furst. McKay’s producing partner Samantha Nisenboim will serve as an executive producer. Renfield is a Universal Pictures film.
