I was not impressed.
Now, Mr. Cage is talking about what he’d like to see from the next installment: A reboot of sorts.
If you saw my previous post on the subject, I made my feelings abundantly clear on the first movie. It’s too bad really as the Ghost Rider character in the Marvel Universe is actually pretty cool.
Fast forward to now and MTV recently spoke with Nicolas Cage for his voice role in the upcoming family 3-D adventure movie G-Force and their discussion led to the topic of Ghost Rider.
“I would like to do a reconceive… I would like to go in a whole other direction, and I think that’s what they’re talking about.”
“I would make it much less of a Western and more of an international story”
Nic’s idea is that he’d like to see his torched character go to Europe and team-up with the Catholic Church. He also says there will be no more Western-style horse riders or six-shooters in the next movie.
That’s not really a reboot as some are speculating online, it’s just a sequel in a different locale. But either way, I’ll pass on both options.
It is an injustice to the film industry that Ghost Rider banked more cash at the world-wide box office than Watchmen did and I have very low expectations for the sequel if they go forward with it.
My prediction is that the majority of folks who saw the first, learned from it, and that the sequel will bank less than its predecessor unless they add some super popular actor to play the villain.
Are you interested in a Ghost Rider sequel?
