Ben Schwartz in Renfield Movie with Nicolas Cage, Nicholas Hoult, Awkwafina

Another player has been selected to tickle our funny bone in the near future Renfield movie. Diversity revealed today that Ben Schwartz has been cast in Universal’s new Dracula… or rather, Dracula’s henchman movie. The studio has not confirmed if Renfield would be a full-blown comedy, but the selection of the cast, script, and director suggests that at least some comedy elements can be incorporated into the story.

Schwartz joins previously announced cast Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road), who was set to play the title character, Nicolas Cage (Pig), who would be the greatest vampire that ever existed, and Awkwafina (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), who was announced in an undisclosed role.

This is just one of many Schwartz projects for 2022, one of which is his revenge on the iconic character Sonic in the series. Sonic the Hedgehog 2. He will lend the title character his voice again. Besides that, he also did the dub work for the upcoming show DC League of Super-Pets. On top of that, he’ll also be reprising his voice work with another iconic character: once again, he’ll be Leonardo in Rise of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, based on the Nickelodeon animated series.

Renfield will be directed by Chris McKay, who is best known for his work LEGO Batman Movie and most recently, on Prime Video’s blockbuster Tomorrow’s battle. So, knowing that McKay can take on both comedic and large-scale action projects, it’s exciting to follow along and see what he’ll be able to do with one of Universal’s most famous monsters.


Script written by Ryan Ridley, who made his feature film debut and has proven time and time again his talent for comedy: he has written scripts for TV shows like Blue Mountain State and Communityand most recently for Rick and Morty and FOX’s supernatural comedy series There are ghosts. So Dracula could be a natural next step for Ridley. He has adapted Renfield from an outline originally written by Robert Kirkman (Zombie).
