Put your affairs in order and pick out your coffin, Renfield has officially completed principal photography! Universal Pictures announced the big news on their Twitter account today, adding that now all fans have to do is “wait 365 days for it to hit the big screen!” Hold up the film’s colorful yellow and red logo stars Awkwafina and Nicholas Holt pose next to the director of the film, Chris McKay, celebrate their hard work and dedication.
The cameras started rolling Renfield Early February, which marks a quick two-month process from start to finish. Of course, all the behind-the-scenes action must now take place in order for the film to hit theaters by April 2023. And while we’ve seen very little from the set, we can now look forward to the first look at images, teasers, and trailers to emerge over the next few months.
Renfield will see Nicholas Cage‘s Dracula emerging from his coffin and entering a timeline of the present. Laughter is inevitable as the undead king tries to understand what has become of the world around him. But as the film’s title suggests, this film may be more about Dracula’s faithful servant than the vampire himself. Playing the titular character will be Nicholas Holtcurrently playing in The great. In the timeless novel Draculafrom Bram Stoker, Renfield is a mortal man who responds to Drac’s every nod and call, but is never rewarded with the ultimate gift of eternal life. Judging from what we already know about the film, we think they’ll follow that storyline closely to play up the comedy in Dracula and Renfield’s relationship.
Alongside Cage, Hoult and Awkwafina, an outstanding cast will help bring the story of the undead back to life Ben Black, James Moses, Shohreh Agdashlooand Better Rous.
There have been countless adaptations of Stoker’s beloved novel over the years, starting with the classic Nosferatu until the terrible 1931 Dracula With Bel Lugosi to a fun and animated version of the Prince of Darkness, voiced by Adam Sandler in Hotel Transylvania. And that was in 1995 Dracula: Dead and Loving It brought the laughs Leslie Nielsen and Peter MacNicol If we’re playing the buddy duo Dracula and Renfield, respectively, we have even higher hopes Renfield. Whatever the case, with filming now complete, work can begin on the final stages of McKay’s vampire comedy, and boy oh boy can we wait.
