Nicolas DraculaBy RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies
Every so often the stars shine, the planets align and something extraordinary happens. And that time is now. Nicolas Cage will be Dracula in the Upcoming ‘Renfield’ Movie for Universal!
Universal Pictures has a solo movie for Dracula’s henchman Renfield, based on an original pitch from “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman. Chris McKay is set to direct the movie, with Nicholas Hoult on board to star as Renfield.
We have seen Cage as a vampire(sorta-kinda) in Vampire Kiss from 1988. A real gem of a movie. So for him to play the most famous vampire, people are split. Plot details are currently unknown, though it’s believed to take place during the present day and is not a period piece. In the original “Dracula” novel, R.M. Renfield was an inmate at a lunatic asylum who was thought to be suffering from delusions but is actually a servant of Dracula.
Lugosi, Lee, Oldman, and now Cage. I said it was extraordinary, I did not say it was good or bad. Given the right project Cage can be great. Whether it is good or bad, I am sure we will get a few great memes from it.Share this article on:
