Ghost Rider shifts gears

05.22.2002

Once a project set up at Dimension Films with Stephen Norrington directing and Nicolas Cage starring, GHOST RIDER has been dropped by all three and will be picked up by Sony Pictures. As part of that deal, Sony has hired writer Shane Salerno (SHAFT) to write a new screenplay. While both Norrington and Cage have moved on to other projects, Sony is hoping they can convince at least Cage to return to the role he was once almost 100% set to play. Cage, an avid comic book fan, has always been drawn to the tale of Johnny Blaze, who, in order to save his wife, made a pact with the Devil, turning him into the Ghost Rider. Stephen Norrington has gone on to direct another comic adaptation, THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN.
