Nicolas Cage puts on the fangs again for Renfield. In 1988 he played a vampire in the making for Vampire’s Kiss, but now he wears the full attire with Nicholas Hoult as his henchman.
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, “Face/Off”). 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.
Talent is in the veins of Nicolas Cage, whose real name is Nicolas Kim Coppola. Coming from a successful family in the entertainment industry Cage opted to change his name to no live under the scope of the Coppola family. He did however take part in some of his uncle, Francis Ford Coppola (“The Godfather“) projects like Rumble Fish and that same year, 1982 he got his big break with Valley Girl. Cages has a repertoire of over 40 years and is still going strong. Some of his hits are Moonstruck, Leaving Las Vegas, The Rock and Next. Some of his latest projects from last year include The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent and Butcher’s Crossing. Earlier this year was the western, The Old Way.

I was fortunate to connect with one of hollywood’s movie stars, Nicolas Cage to talk about his upcoming film, Renfield. He discussed a little bit about bringing this version of dracula to life and who was a favorite past dracula. I of course had to ask a question about time traveling with a reference about the 1870 photo that resembles him.
