The Ghost Rider Rides Again: Sequel in the Works

It’s a good thing Ghost Rider’s motorcycle is powered by hellfire, because with today’s gas prices — well, you know, insert your own gas prices are way too high joke here. Although considering that gas prices have fallen lately, maybe that joke wouldn’t actually work anymore. But I digress. News from the boys at Bloody-Disgusting is that Columbia Pictures is currently looking for writers to tackle a sequel to 2007′s “Ghost Rider”. If you don’t remember, “Ghost Rider” was a Nicolas Cage movie that no one talked about until it hit theaters and became an instant hit, shocking pretty much everyone.

From BD:

What we learned this evening is that Columbia Pictures is officially out to writers to pen the sequel and that Nicolas Cage is in fact attached and signed on to return.

The original was written and directed by Mark Steven Johnson, a major comic book fan, having also written and directed another Marvel property, “Daredevil”. It also starred Nicolas Cage, who despite his Hollywood leading man status, is something of a comic book dork. Hell, the guy named his kid Kal-el, for God’s sake. You can’t get any dorkier than that, folks.

To be perfectly honest with you, I don’t even remember what the first movie was about. What I do remember is that Sam Elliot played a great cowboy version of the Ghost Rider, but for some reason the film failed to make very much use of his Ghost rider. Other than that, I also remember Eva Mendes’ cleavage, but that’s about it.

Below: “Kal-el, get over here now or you’ll be grounded in the Fortress of Solitude for the next two weeks, young man!”

    Ghost Rider has been one of my favorites for years and years. I even bought a ton of back issues for the original Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider. The thing I liked most about the Ghost Rider movie was using the Johnny Blaze character with the Dan Ketch look. It was great. How about Blackout or Deathwatch for a villain in the next movie?
