“X-Men” alum Nicholas Hoult will star in Universal’s “Renfield”, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Chris McKay (“The Tomorrow War”) is directing a Robert Kirkman-conceieved tale. Ryan Ridley scripts.
The film, a spin-off of “Dracula”, tells of the neck-sucker’s iniquitous acolyte.
Hoult was last seen playing second fiddle to a foresty inferno in “Those Who Wish me Dead”.
