Ghost Rider 2 Update

Ghost Rider poster... ughLike it or not, Nicolas Cage is coming back for a second go ’round as Ghost Rider Johnny Blaze. And it actually sounds like it could be decent.

Collider recently talked to Ghost Rider 2 producer Mike De Luca. According to him, the sequel will possibly bear the title Ghost Rider – Spirit of Vengeance and will not see the return of director Mark Steven Johnson or Eva Mendes.

Other points of interest:

Ghost Rider 2 will be a hard PG-13.

– The film is going to take place in Europe.

– De Luca is open to [writer] David Goyer directing the sequel.

– The sequel will be like “pushing the reset button” on the franchise.

– Ghost Rider 2 might be done in 3D.

– Goyer has just delivered his updated outline to the studio.

– Ghost Rider 2 could be in front of the cameras this year.

I enjoyed the first film for what it was, and I’ll gladly welcome another if Goyer’s script is up to snuff.

    I guess Sam Elliott won’t be returning. He was one of the very few enjoyable things in the first.

    • Uncle Creepy

      Enjoyably senseless. “I got one ride left in me.” Let me use it to journey with you to the showdown so I can just leave once we get there! LOL Priceless!

    The first one was horrible…Nicholas Cage cannot act. When will they realize this? Probably too many botched remakes or reboots later..

  • Terminal

    “Raising Arizona? Leaving Las Vegas? The Weather Man? Adaptation? Hell, I even love Face/Off and Con Air”

    Great, sucks, sucks, good, sucks, sucks.

    And Lord of War was dreadful.

    As for Ghost Rider 2, I laughed at the term “hard PG-13.”

    Masked Slasher, the only time in The Weather Man that got any reaction out of me was when he was standing at the corner staring at the girl’s ass. I laughed out loud, then suffered through the rest of the film.
    But the others you listed range from good to so, so bad (Con Air) that they become watchable again.

    Nothing that has Nick Cage in it has ever been GOOD…IMO

    • Masked Slasher

      Awwww, that’s crazy talk. :)

      Raising Arizona? Leaving Las Vegas? The Weather Man? Adaptation? Hell, I even love Face/Off and Con Air.

      And, actually, I loved Knowing as well.

      • The Woman In Black

        Don’t forget Lord of War. Along with Adaptation, it’s a big favorite of mine.

          I would add the first national treasure as well. I went in irritated that it got greenlighted instead of a new tomb raider ( love me some Lara croft, lol), and the trailor appeared to be a rip-off of Lara croft, which of course ripped off Indian jones, but ended up eating my words and enjoying it. Not really plausible, but more entertaining in a Dan brown novel kind of way than the Dan brown adaptations themselves.

        • Masked Slasher

          I actually did forget about Lord of War.

          That’s a great film, too.
