    ‘La Manoir du Diable’, a silent film from 1896 directed by George Méliès, meant the birth of the myth. Later, we have been able to enjoy great works such as ‘Nosferatu’, ‘Dracula’ -both the one by Tod Browning and the one directed by Terence Fisher in 1958- or ‘Dracula by Bram Stoker’ directed by Francis Ford Coppola. It seemed like we knew the best vampires of cinema, series and pop culture by the hand of Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee and Gary Oldman or through proposals as fun as ‘What we do in the shadows’, the series you have to see if you like ‘The Office’but we didn’t count on good old Nic and his new vampire mischief: ‘Renfield’. Cult movie before its premiere? Worthy heiress of ‘Brácula: Condemor II’? That is everything we know at the moment about the film, its synopsis, its release date, its cast and other details.

    The protagonist who gives the film its name will be Nicholas Houltwhom we have been able to see as Beast in the ‘X-Men’ prequel saga, as well as in ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ and ‘Tolkien’ and whose character, that of a prisoner who acts under the influence of Dracula, is slightly reminiscent of his role in ‘Memoirs of a Teenage Zombie’ in which he gave life to a zombie with existential problems.

    Besides Hoult, who could take the lead on this project? Well, a man who is already a genre in himself: Nicolas Cage. The actor from ‘Leaving Las Vegas’, ‘The unbearable weight of a huge talent’ and ‘Pig’, and also from more indigestible things like ‘Jiu Jitsu’, ‘211’ and ‘The Portal of the Beyond’, will be the fearsome Prince of Darkness in a new twist to the story of the immortal Count.
