NICHOLAS HOULT IS DRACULA'S CRAZY HENCHMAN RENFIELD IN UNIVERSAL'S NEW MOVIE! CHEVALIER DE SAINT GEORGES PERIOD SET DRAMA FINDS ITS MARIE ANTOINETTE IN LUCY BOYNTON

   NICHOLAS HOULT TO PLAY  
DRACULA'S HELPER RENFIELD
Nicholas Hoult will be Renfield!
It will be Universal's new epic movie on Dracula's favourite henchman RENFIELD with Chris McKay directing and Nicholas Hoult taking the lead role. In the original Dracula novel, R.M. Renfield was an inmate at a lunatic asylum who was thought to be suffering from delusions but actually is a servant of Dracula. The sad news is that it seems the story will be set in the present times, so it won't be a costume drama. Beside this one, Universal studio also has Wolfman with Ryan Gosling and Van Helsing movies in preparation within their Monster Universe movie series which hasn't been overly successful so far.
 
CHEVALIER DE SAINT GEORGES
FINDS ITS MARIE ANTOINETTE
Lucy Boynton will play the French queen
After casting Samara Weaving as a female opera singer last month, new period set movie CHEVALIER DE SAINT GEORGES has cast the queen of France Marie Antoinette who will be played by Lucy Boynton. The lead role goes to Kelvin Harrison Jr. who will play the title character:  Born in 1745 in the French Caribbean, de Saint Georges was the illegitimate son of an African slave and a French plantation owner. He rose to improbable heights in French society, dazzling as both a violinist and composer and a champion fencer. An ill-fated love affair with a French noblewoman and a falling out with Marie Antoinette and her court led to his untimely downfall. Stephen Williams is directing the costume drama movie.

    1. I don't think I've seen her in anything, but she looks very bland in the photos.

    1. Bland is not the same as pretty, deary, there is no personality there, looks like a cold bowl of soup, no radiance, no charisma. And she looks like that in all of her photoshoots. The dress is pretty, though.

  5. Meh to Dracuala too, but Chevalier De Saint Georges is a definitely yes. I agree with Angie. I think Lucy has an understated beauty about her. Fresh faced, girl next door vibe. I like it.
