“Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” has added two more names to its cast: “The Losers’” Idris Elba (left) and Johnny Whitworth, who has appeared in “Gamer”, the sci-fi actioner from “Ghost Rider 2″ directors and writers Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.
In the sequel, set to return Nicolas Cage as the dude with the flaming skull, Elba will play an alcoholic warrior monk tasked with finding Ghost Rider, while Whitworth plays a criminal recruited by the devil (Ciaran Hinds) as a henchman.
The sequel previously cast Hinds as the villain, along with Italian lovely Violante Placido as the female lead in need of sasving from the devil.
“Ghost Rider 2″ takes place after the events of the first film, and finds Johnny Blaze (Cage) in self-imposed exile in Europe, where he is forced out of hiding to save the day once again. Ain’t that always the way?
