In addition to this, according to the reports from a media portal, the production schedule for the movie is going to begin in early 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

RENFIELD’S CAST Details
Renfield will be casting stars like Nicholas Hoult who will be seen playing the role of the titular henchman. Nicholas Hoult is known for his role of the beast in the most recent X-men films. Like we mentioned earlier Nicolas cafe will be playing the role of Dracula opposite Nicholas Hoult.

RENFIELD PLOT Details
The story of Renfield will be very different from other vampire movies and will follow the toxic and co-dependent relationship between a henchman and Dracula. That is also the concept after which the movie has been named.
Dracula character was first introduced in Bram Stoker Renfield novel in 1897. In the novel, the character was obsessed with drinking blood because he wanted to achieve immortality and hence the readers meet him as a patient in some asylum. In the novel, Renfirled admires the villain character Dracula and becomes his servant. Dracula who in turn constantly manipulates and teases him by dangling on his assistant’s true desire of life.
So, we can say the story will somehow follow the plotline from the novel. Another few details we know about the movie’s plot is that it will be more like an adventure comedy or oddly enough a breakup movie. In the movie, it is speculated that Renfield will team up with a new character to take down his personal hero and we don’t know the reason behind it. Also, the project is going to take place in a modern-day setting so it might be a reason that the two got finally sick of each other. More details about the plot of the movie might emerge when the makes approach towards the filming and production of the series.
As the shooting of the film has not begun yet, we cannot expect a trailer or a teaser so soon. But as soon as Universal Picture releases any glimpses or teasers we will be the first ones to share them with you for sure.
