So, wondering what we’ll be seeing in the Nicolas Cage driven sequel to the misfire that was Ghost Rider written by the Crank duo of Neveldine and Taylor? Other than Cage possibly fighting Dracula, Cage exhibiting more CGI abs, and of course Cage’s ludicrously changing hair style? Well, a recent script review is home to some more details.
Warning: Spoilers Ahead! Alarm! Shark Alarm!
Exclusively from Comicus, a script review has emerged sharing a few details on the film’s setting, plot points, and new characters our Brimstone Biker will interact with. NOTE that the original review was in Italian so the Google Translator was used, and a few areas may be difficult to understand. Thanks to Comic Book Movie:
After the success of the first film is not exciting among fans, Sony/Columbia Pictures will try again with what in effect is basically a sequel, though at the same time is the way to revive the character and the franchise some lightening issues that had covered the first film, especially as regards the presence of Roxanne, which does not appear in the script.
Johnny Blaze found years after the events of the first film, self-exiled from the world. In this way, hopefully, not having contact with people, able to control the spirit of Vengeance. Blaze is approached by Moreau, a monaco quite unusual part of the monastic order of Michael, the warrior angel. The Monaco but needs the special talents of former stuntman to trace a woman named Nadya and her son Danny, who must be protected at all costs, as there is on his trail Roarke, who is none other than an old knowledge of our hero (you certainly understand who they are) and is interested in the guy for a particular reason.
The script strongly underlines the tormented soul of Johnny Blaze since its first appearance. For he is a man who just wants to hide and who sees in his power a curse, more muted than in films directed by Mark Steven Johnson. The script focuses on the background in this way also “historic” that covers Ghost Rider, explaining in more detail to the viewer and the protagonist that the spirit of Vengeance is appearing more than once, and with different identities over the centuries. An interesting part of this working thanks to the characterization, creating a strong bond between the characters of Nadya, Danny and Johnny, also not forgetting Moreau, well shaded from start to finish. Only link with the previous film is a little flashback on the Origin of Ghost Rider, the covenant between Blaze and Mephistopheles.
A defect in particular, however, is to underline the main plot of “Mephisto” bad, or to Roarke, of course already seen in myriad other films in one way or another, and perhaps a little degrading, who expected more from this point of view. Ultimately the work is pretty good but could do better, also seen the one from which you started earlier. For the most passionate fans, there’s a final twist, but much nerd. Not reveal more.
Of course this is just a script review. and many things can change. Still interesting to see where they’re looking to go.
