Nicolas Cage plays Count Dracula in RENFIELD with Nicholas Hoult as his trusted assistant who wants out of the toxic relationship. Playing the menacing boss vampire was fun for the actor, but most of all, he enjoys the film's empowering message. We also shared our own horrible boss story.
RENFIELD hits movie theaters on April 14 with Awkwafina also starring in the horror-comedy.
In this modern monster tale of Dracula’s loyal servant, Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road, X-Men franchise) stars as Renfield, the tortured aide to history’s most narcissistic boss, Dracula (Oscar® winner Nicolas Cage). Renfield is forced to procure his master’s prey and do his every bidding, no matter how debased. But now, after centuries of servitude, Renfield is ready to see if there’s a life outside the shadow of The Prince of Darkness. If only he can figure out how to end his codependency.
