Amazing Set Photos and New Still Image from Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
01.08.12 by BJSprecher
In an interview conducted during the beginning of principal photography on Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance — a non-sequel sequel to Ghost Rider that takes place five years after the first movie — title star Nicolas Cage spoke very highly of the directing team of Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine (Crank movies). He called Taylor a "knowledgeable" filmmaker and credited him with inspiring him to return as Johnny Blaze, the damned superhero possessed by the "Spirit of Vengeance." Cage said that Neveldine was "doing things [he had] never seen a director do before," from "filming on roller blades" to "hanging on wires," describing him as a "stunt man, camera operator and director all in one."
A batch of new photos from the set of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance have just been released that perfectly illustrate what Cage was talking about, with one showing Taylor putting his knowledge to work as he instructs Violante Placido in the proper way to hold a gun and two other amazing photos showing Neveldine being pulled behind a motorcyle on rollerblades and hanging from a wire to catch the perfect shots. In addition, a new still image from the movie has been released that shows what you need to fight The Devil (Ciarán Hinds) if you don't have the "Spirit of Vengeance" living inside of you the way Blaze does: Guns. Lots and lots of guns.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance was written Scott M. Gimple, Seth Hoffman and David S. Goyer, from a story by Goyer. The cast includes Idris Elba as Moreau, Christopher Lambert as Methodius and Johnny Whitworth as Roarke Carrigan/Blackout.
