Chris McKay (Robot Chicken, The Lego Movie: Batman) has expressed his desire to direct and produce Renfield. The picture itself is part of Universal’s MCU.
Renfield’s plot will focus on one of the characters in the classic novel “Dracula” by Bram Stoker. We are talking about Renfield – a psychiatric patient who is actually a henchman of the legendary vampire.
There are not so many details about the film. It is known that the picture will not repeat the story from “Dracula”, but will become a kind of “fresh look” at the character. The idea for the new plot was proposed by Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead, and the script for the film was written by Ryan Ridley (Rick and Morty, Invincible).
No release date or Renfield caste has been announced yet.
