Nicolas Cage Talks Ghost Rider 2
Posted 03.12.09 by Ryan
Remember Ghost Rider? The movie with Nicolas Cage as the skull-faced comic book character riding around on a flaming motorcycle that looked like it might be good but ultimately was really disappointing? Ready for a sequel? Cage is.
In a recent interview, Cage told MTV News that a writer, and even a new director, will be needed for a potential sequel. Apparently, Ghost Rider and Daredevil director Mark Steven Johnson, according to Cage, "has his own thing going on." What, ruining another possible comic book franchise?
The changes might be a good thing, since Cage says a new Ghost Rider would have to differ greatly from its predecessor:
It has to have that action horror element and go deeper into that if it were to happen and [it should] keep us asking questions. Keep it interesting on a philosophical level.
While that does sound better, Cage admits that any decision to move forward is "up to the studio. It’s really in their hands."
