Nicolas Cage will (most likely) ride again as the Ghost Rider! According to Variety, Columbia Pictures pictures is moving forward with a sequel to Mark Steven Johnson’s 2007 comic book adaptation, while leaving Johnson in the dust.
Columbia has picked up an old Ghost Rider script from David Goyer, and is hoping to rewrite it into a sequel. I’m cool with Goyer writing the film, but I hope he doesn’t direct it. I was looking forward to both Blade: Trinity and The Invisible, but neither delivered. Not all writers make good directors. I hope they find someone new, with a fresh perspective and a cool dark style. Ghost Rider could make an awesome thriller, mixing the darkness of Hellraiser with the action adventure of Spider-Man. We’ll see.
