A new monster movie from Universal based around Dracula’s henchman Renfield is in the works, and Nicolas Cage is set to play his boss.

Simply entitled Renfield, the original story will star Nicholas Hoult as the famous helper-outerer.

The LEGO Batman Movie and The Tomorrow War director Chris McKay is set to helm the film.

While nothing’s been revealed of the plot, word is that the story will be set in the present day.

Cage has had some previous vampiric experience, most notably in 1988’s Vampire’s Kiss, where he played an advertising executive who believed that he was turning into a vampire.
