Multiplying the productions, Nicolas Cage will take the opportunity to take a step in the “horror” box since he will play Dracula in “Renfield”, a film devoted to the henchman of the famous vampire. We hadn’t seen her coming, that one!
Nicolas Cage: this 21st century Stakhanovist
At 57, Nicolas Cage has lined up so many productions that it is difficult to count them. Revealed in the mid-80s with Birdy, the Californian actor has since become a well-known star of the Hollywood landscape. Indeed, the actor was able to align the outstanding performances, both in auteur films and in blockbusters between the 80s and the 2000s.
However, after that time, Nicolas Cage started to star in just about anything and everything, garnering both praise and mockery for interstellar turnips. However, his love rating with many moviegoers has not weakened. Indeed, despite the fact that the actor is a little crazy, he is always appreciated for his ability to give his all for each of his roles.
While he is currently increasing the number of projects (we will find him on the poster for three films in 2022), we therefore learn that he has decided to add a new film. to his already super-busy schedule.
Nor “croc” las Cage
The Hollywood Reporter So dropped the bomb: Nicolas Cage will play the vampire Dracula in a new Universal Monsters production called Renfield. While Universal Pictures had totally messed up with the Dark Universe project which wanted to resuscitate the famous monsters of its bestiary (namely The Mummy, The Invisible Man or even The Werewolf, among others) in Avengers mode, the studio has this time seen smaller.
Indeed, Renfield will be centered on the character of the same name, known to be the vampire’s submissive servant. The character will be played by Nicolas Hoult, and therefore supported by Nicolas Cage who will play this mythical creature of the night.
For the little anecdote, this is not the first time that the actor crosses the universe of vampires. Indeed, let us rememberKiss me vampire, film released in 1989 and in which his character was mentally unbalanced who believed he was a vampire. The film has also remained famous for a mimicry made by Cage which has since become an oven for memes, gifs and other misappropriations on the Internet.
It is in any case a pleasure to find Nicolas Cage in a new production. Directed by Chris McKay (Lego Batman, The Tomorrow War) and based on an original story by Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead), Renfield currently has no release date.
