Production continues to blaze on Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s sequel to the lackluster 2007 Ghost Rider film.
Back in November we got an early glimpse at Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze as well as a charred Hellcycle – and and today we’ve got a fresh batch of over twenty set photos that offer a better look at Blaze’s bike, Cage and other extras on set, as well as preview of the film’s finale.
The new images don’t really reveal any significant spoilers for the film but if you’re looking to avoid any information about Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, you might want to resist checking out the images (especially the latter half).
While the recent Spider-Man photos provided fans with an idea of what to expect from the web slinger’s new costume, given the amount of CGI it takes to create Ghost Rider, it’s important to approach these set photos with a grain of salt. The photos come from a variety of sources that posted the images to an unofficial Facebook fan page – check out the full album, which contains over 100 photos – HERE.
Check out the photos below:
Despite a reduced budget ($75 million), compared to Mark Steven Johnson’s Ghost Rider film ($110 million), Nicolas Cage is promising that the second film will be less of a “fairy tale” or “western” and will be more of an “international” film with more “adrenaline” and greater fan service.
The story is certainly compelling, and steals a bit from the recent Incredible Hulk film – as the film starts with Ghost Rider in self-imposed exile after the events from the first film – that is until he’s is tasked by a monastic order with protecting a mother and son from the film’s villain, Roarke.
Judging by the new photos, international is right – as the production has spent most of its time in various parts of Eastern Europe including Bucharest, Hunyad Castle, Sibiu, Rovinari, Lake Vidraru, among other locales.
It’ll be interesting to see how the photos play out in the final film – as well as how Neveldine and Taylor take Cage’s real-world biker guy look – and fill it out with the CGI Rider effects.
