During a recent interview with Collider, Nicolas Cage confirmed that his Dracula doesn’t “get a lot of screen time” in Renfield.
The movie really isn’t about me, but Dracula, I don’t have a lot of screen time. It’s really Nick Hoult’s movie, and it’s about Renfield. I didn’t have time, like the two-hour narrative to really dig deep into the pathos of Dracula itself. It’s not this. But I had enough screen time to be able to try to develop a pop-art style for the character that hopefully will be a good contribution to the other performers who have done it, who have had their own take on it. this legendary character in both literature. and the cinema.
Dead evil rises
Speaking to Empire Magazine, director Lee Cronin stated that he didn’t “need” to set Evil Dead Rise in a city, he just “wanted to”.
It was very natural for me to make that move. It wasn’t forced in a way like, ‘We need the evil dead in town!’ It was, ‘I want a family and I want it to be urban.’ I still treated it the same way. I see the apartment as a cabin, the corridors and other aspects of the building as a forest.

The last of us
Entertainment Weekly reports that Rutina Wesley has been cast as Maria, “the leader of a settlement of survivors in Jackson, Wyoming” in HBO’s The Last of Us series.
On a related note, co-host Neil Druckman revealed that because the show did not want its actors to wear face masks, the show’s cordyceps mold spreads through underground “lenses” instead of airborne spores.
Finally, those conversations [about not using gas masks] led us to these tents. And then, just thinking about how there’s a transition that happens from one infected to another, and like the fungus, it can become a network that’s interconnected. It became very scary to think that everyone is working against us in this unified way, which was a concept that I really liked that was developed in the show.
