Nicolas Cage officially returning for Ghost Rider 2
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
On the Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Nicolas Cage announced he will officially be returning for a sequel to GHOST RIDER. He also said that the film will be directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who previously directed CRANK and GAMER. We don’t really know anything about the script, but supposedly, the film will be called GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE. This falls in line with what we’ve heard about the film, which is that it was being fast tracked so the studio could retain their rights to the franchise.
The best news here is that Mark Steven Johnson won’t be directing the sequel. After he managed to destroy DAREDEVIL and GHOST RIDER back to back, he hopefully won’t ever be allowed to touch a comic book movie. Unfortunately, I’m not convinced Neveldine/Taylor can do any better, but hopefully they’ll take the film in a different direction and maybe it can be better than the original.
