RENFIELD: Awkwafina Added to Cast of Forthcoming Monster Movie

Awkwafina Joining Cast of New Creature Feature

Awkwafina is boarding the new monster film, Renfield, and will be playing a key role in the upcoming picture.

Awkwafina has been on quite a roller coaster ride lately. She recently had a principal part in one of the biggest movies of the year that played in theaters, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Now, the acclaimed Golden Globe winning actress has come aboard Universal’s Renfield, another film which has “blockbuster” written all over it. This forthcoming movie is derived from Universal’s Dark Universe and is inspired by the studio’s vault of monster movies.

Awkwafina came on to the scene in a major way with her colorful role in the box-office smash, Crazy Rich Asians. Since her work in that film, she has been, in a word, unstoppable. She won the aforementioned Golden Globe for her part in the dramatic comedy The Farewell which was one of the most critically acclaimed movies of 2019. She followed that up with a role in a smart and funny TV show called “Awkwafina is Nora From Queens.” If you live or have recently lived in Queens, New York, you most likely heard Awkwafina promoting the series roughly a couple of years ago by her recorded voice announcing subway stops on the number 7 train. This was pre-pandemic but proved Awkwafina’s personality is distinct, colorful and one that people adore.

In Renfield, it is said that Awkwafina will be playing the part of a character who joins forces with Nicholas Hoult’s title character to battle Nicolas Cage’s Dracula. It’s a natural role for the acclaimed actress to take on after starring in the Marvel “monster” box-office bonanza, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings which earned a coveted “A” CinemaScore grade from moviegoers. Awkwafina also did voice-over work for another hit, Disney’s animated film, Raya and the Last Dragon.  That film also received an “A” CinemaScore. People seem to like Awkwafina’s work. A lot.

Awkwafina will soon be premiering another voice-over role with her work in The Bad Guys from DreamWorks Animation. It’s only been three years since Crazy Rich Asians came out in theaters, but Awkwafina has emerged the most consistently liked performer from the cast. Even fellow cast member Henry Golding stumbled with his recent Snake Eyes just earning a mediocre CinemaScore grade of “B-.” Just for the record, Crazy Rich Asians earned, you guessed it, an “A” CinemaScore as well. It’s safe to say that Awkwafina has a perfect GPA in her film roles (at least according to CinemaScore) and you can see her in Renfield when the film is eventually released.  There is no current set date for the picture’s premiere as of yet.
