Actor Johnny Whitworth has told AMC while out promoting his film “Limitless” with Bradley Cooper that he’s playing Blackout in the new Nicholas Cage “Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance” movie. Apparently Whitworth has already shot the film (which took 4 months, he says), and is now back in the States.
According to Whitworth, his character is a human villain for the majority of the movie, but is eventually turned into the supernatural creature Blackout by the Devil (Ciarán Hinds) in order to take on Ghost Rider (Cage). The film will co-star Violante Placido as the female lead, whose son is being pursued by the Devil, with Idris Elba as a warrior monk who assists the hero with the flaming skull.
