Ghost Rider 2 gets a new devil and a leading lady

09.30.2010

If you're not all that fired up about the idea of a sequel to GHOST RIDER, I'm not sure if this casting news will fuel any more excitement.

GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE will find Nic Cage's hotheaded motorcyclist facing off with a new devil, Ciaran Hinds (ROAD TO PERDITION, MUNICH, HBO's "Rome").

The story finds Cage's ex-stuntman Johnny Blaze in self-imposed exile trying to suppress his demonic side, only to be recruited by a secret holy society on a mission to prevent the dark lord from taking over the body of a young mortal man.

The movie will also feature Italian actress Violante Placido (THE AMERICAN) as the boy's mother. You can find her credentials below.

The 3D movie comes from CRANK guys Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. The duo did a rewrite of the script, still based on a story by David Goyer.

The European-set Sony project is gearing up soon, partially out of necessity to avoid the character rights reverting back to Marvel, where they're probably better off.

Extra Tidbit: With Neveldine/Taylor behind the camera, could this actually turn out crazy enough to be entertaining?

I think this movie has alot of potential to be better than the first. Only because of the guys from Crank are behind this one.

I'd like there to be a good sequel or reboot for Ghost Rider, but I have zero confidence after seeing how down right awful the first one was. Even Fantastic Four had it's moments, but Ghost Rider...holy crap - no tone redeeming factor.

i wish all of Marvels movies went back to Marvel. Fantastic four, ghost rider, silver surfer, daredevil, spider-man and of course x-men would all be better off in Marvel's hands.

hey

i dig N/T's work for the most part. i had zero expectations for crank 2, having never seen crank, and that movie just made sense to me. however i also love Asians, strippers, excessive violence, TOOL, godzilla, did i mention TnA?, quirkiness and i even thought the animations they had in were fun. after that i saw crank and gamer. C2 still the best IMO. if you haven't checked out behind the scenes on how they shoot i suggest you do. i found it to be very insightful, and their backing with RED

As for Ghostrider, the first was shit. so it can only get better, no?

To see Ciaran Hinds in a lead role, check out "The Eclipse" (not "Twilight: Eclipse," mind you). I'm sorry his involvement doesn't make me more interested.

I've never seen this guy in a lead role. He's a great supporting actor though, Munich and whatnot. This just has straight to dvd written all over it.

Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor


Great, now instead of Eva Mendes' terrible acting we're going to get Ciarán Hinds doing a little jig during his showdown with Ghost Rider, along with shaky, handheld shots taken while the directors are on rollerblades. Then the film will be run through a vat of urine, to make it look like a bad acid trip.

So stoked.

Hm

The first film is embarrassingly bad, hopefully Neveldine/Taylor will bring their A game to make this one better. As to the lady, meh, she's no Eva Mendes...

Cage obviously is going to be great as (almost) always, but Neveldine/Taylor? Pass, worst directors ever (even Uwe Boll is a genius compared to them)

Cage isn't even the worst thing in this movie, it is Neveldine/Taylor behind the camera. I just loathe Crank(s) and Gamer.

Ciaran Hinds is great, but Cage sucked in the first one. Dead acting and a bad hairpiece don't equal the Spirit of Vengeance. THIS is the perfect flick to go dark and gritty with an 'R' rating, just get a better Johnny Blaze.

let marvel use their characters right. I'm surprised the comic fan he is, Nic Cage wouldn't let it go back to Marvel
