“Renfield” Begins Filming, Adds Bess Rous
Bess Rous (“Ghostbusters,” “Murder in the First”) will round out the cast of Chris McKay’s monster movie “Renfield” at Universal Pictures.
Bess will play Caitlyn, a member of a support group for people in toxic relationships. She joins a cast that includes Nicholas Hoult, Nicolas Cage, Awkwafina, Ben Schwartz, Adrian Martinez and Shohreh Aghdashloo.
Ryan Ridley (“Rick and Morty”) penned the script which centers on Renfield (Hoult), the deranged acolyte who has grown sick and tired of his centuries as Dracula’s (Cage) lackey.
The henchman finds a new lease on life and maybe even redemption when he falls for feisty, perennially angry traffic cop Rebecca Quincy (Awkwafina).
Filming on the project has just begun in New Orleans, check out the film’s retro logo from the first set photo released yesterday.
