Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance Discussion, Pics etc Till Release



Cage confirms Ghost Rider 2 is happening.
Nicolas Cage will return for a Ghost Rider sequel to be helmed by Neveldine/Taylor, the actor confirmed tonight on "The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson."

"There's gonna be a new one," Cage told Ferguson after the host presented him with a model of a flaming skull, "I just made the deal today."

He also confirmed the recent rumor that Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank, Gamer) will direct the film, still rumored to be called Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.

This film has been in talks for some time about getting started. If Columbia isn't filming by 2011 then the rights revert back to Marvel and I guess they don't want that to happen. One of the holdups to this film, recently anyway, was that Nic Cage is also scheduled to shoot National Treasure 3. Seems that all has been worked out, as of now.

However a new love interest will be in order as Eva Mendes has said she will not be back.
Eva Mendes will not be returning for the Ghost Rider sequel (tentatively titled Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance), the actress confirmed to SHH at yesterday's junket for her upcoming film, The Other Guys.
Mendes appeared in the first Ghost Rider film as Roxanne, the childhood sweetheart of Nicolas Cage's Johnny Blaze.
"No, unfortunately," was the actress' only comment when asked about whether or not she'd be back for the recently-announced sequel, set to again star Cage with the new director team of Neveldine/Taylor.
While no one here, or about the 'net for that matter, would call the first Ghost Rider great it did have its moments. I myself had some issues with it but overall liked it enough to want them to try for greatness this time around.

The Blaze character could now ditch the hokey aloof jelly bean munchie gimmick now that he's aware of and has embraced who and what he is. It's been a few years so surely they can enhance the flamming skull look.

I look forward to tracking the progress of this film cause GR is one of the most unique looking characters out there and he deserves another shot at greatness.

Wait.... There's actually going to be a sequel?! I mean, I actually like the first movie, but never in my wildest dreams did I imagine they'd do another one! I would think that one of the main concerns would have to have been Nicolas Cage's age, but seeing as how the Iron Man franchise has been doing so well, they've gotta be feeling better about that.

Can't wait to see who they come up with to replace Eva Mendes. Oh, the possibilities....

The rights didn't revert back to Marvel. This is Columbia's baby. They have to be in production by November 14 of this year or the rights reverted back to Marvel.

I hate movies that spend so much fo there time on a love interest only to delete that character from history in sequels. Heres an original idea can we not have a love interest

I'm glad to hear that they are giving Ghost Rider another shot. I've been reading the comic books for years and I really enjoyed the current run for the most part.

Didn't I hear that they're using David Goyer's script that he wrote more then a decade ago? I've never heard of either of the directors.

With Cage's money problems I'm not surprised he boarded this project.

I have to say I did not expect this to actually become a movie franchise. Ghost Rider wasn't technically bad, but it wasn't like super sequel deserving either.

Hopefully they get a much better actor to be the main villain this time. The villain in the first movie was a joke.

I wish they'd get a much better actor to play the lead.

While I liked the Crank movies something tells me this project will be best summed up as perfunctory.

I heard we was going to rework some of that script(what it's about I don't know) but I'm sure better details will emerge in the months ahead. After all these are details 9months old, something(s) may have changed that is yet to be reported.
So when I had the chance to ask him about the script and the project, he confirmed the story from last week and said “Ghost Rider 2″ was going to be based on his 9 year old script and all they were going to have to do is polish it up. The reason for the polish is his script was written for an R rating, and Sony wants to make “Ghost Rider 2″ PG-13. But while many of us would love to see an R rated “Ghost Rider”, he did say they got away with a lot in “The Dark Knight”, and he hopes to walk a similar path on “Ghost Rider 2″.

It did well enough for a sequel? I didn't realize that.

It made $228m worldwide on a $110m budget before DVD sales. Heck it basically just broke over even with its USdom take. It just shows yet again that the notion about the net of "a film has to make 2-3times its budget" to garner sequels and/or be called a "hit" is a myth more times than it works in its favor.
