Universal's Renfield Monster Movie Starring Nicholas Hoult And Nicolas Cage Gets A Release Date

Renfield, the "extremely violent comedy" from Universal Pictures and Robert Kirkman, now has a release date. The film, which stars X-Men's Nicholas Hoult and Ghost Rider's Nicolas Cage, will open April 14, 2023, according to Universal. R.M. Renfield, the asylum inmate who was a servant of Dracula in the original Bram Stoker novel, is getting his own movie, with The Tomorrow War and The LEGO Batman Movie director Chris McKay set up to helm the new film. McKay's ability to blend action and comedy was reportedly a big reason why he was brought on as director.

Universal Dates ‘Renfield,’ Starring Nicholas Hoult And Nicolas Cage, For April 2023

Facebook reminded me this morning that today is two years from the date when the review embargo for The Invisible Man broke. The Blumhouse/Universal film was the best mainstream theatrical movie of 2020, albeit with quite a few promising contenders shifted out of the year (or sent to streaming) due to the Covid pandemic which was about to spread worldwide in a few weeks. Leigh Whannell’s $7 million chiller, starring Elizabeth Moss being seemingly being stalked by her allegedly dead ex-boyfriend, earned a strong $143 million worldwide and was among the few successful (or likely to be successful) movies released just before Covid that likely had its global box office severely undercut.

Dracula Movie Renfield Adds The Expanse's Shohreh Aghdashloo Alongside Nicolas Cage And Nicholas Hoult

Every time there's a new piece of news released regarding the new "Renfield" movie from Chris McKay ("The Tomorrow War," "The Lego Batman Movie"), I can feel it hop up a position on the running list of most anticipated films I keep in my brain. First there was Nicolas Cage confessing that his inspiration to play Count Dracula is rooted in Gabriel in "Malignant," and now we've learned that the Oscar-nominated and Emmy winning Shohreh Aghdashloo ("House of Sand and Fog," "Arcane," "The Expanse") has joined the cast. Aghdashloo will star longside Cage's Dracula, Nicholas Hoult's Renfield, Awkwafina, Adrian Martinez, and Ben Schwartz.

Nicholas Hoult Has Taste When It Comes To Motorcycles

There is something about the Japanese custom scene that really understands the look and feel of vintage Americana. For that reason I’m hardly surprised that Go Takamine, founder of Brat Style with custom motorcycle shops in California and Tokyo, managed to build this pitch-perfect hardtail Indian custom from a brand new Chief. It’s fantastically simple with big chunky tires, polished bits only where necessary, brass accents, and astonishing minute details that only show themselves when you get up close.

‘Renfield’: Awkwafina Joins Nic Cage & Nicholas Hoult In Universal’s ‘Dracula’ Reimagining

‘Renfield’: Awkwafina Joins Dracula Comedy With Nicholas Hoult And Nicolas Cage

It didn’t take long, but when Awkwafina is added to a project it gives a certain star quality. Ever since her starring role in The Farewell, which should have earned her an Oscar nomination if you ask me, she’s been key to a pair of blockbusters in Jumanji: The Next Level and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. And now Universal is hoping she can do the same for their Dracula film, Renfield.

Nicolas Cage To Play Dracula Opposite Nicholas Hoult In ‘Renfield’

How is it that Nicolas Cage hasn’t played a classic movie monster before? He played a guy who thought he was a vampire in Vampire’s Kiss, but I mean the real deal. This is an error that must be corrected ASAP, and fortunately for all of us Cage-a-holics out there, it’s about to happen as part of Universal’s upcoming film Renfield, meaning he’ll join the previously cast Nicholas Hoult.
