Prolific superhero-movie scripter David Goyer (“Blade”, “Batman Begins”) will create the story and supervise writers (just as he did on “The Dark Knight”) on a sequel to the underwhelming 2007 actioner “Ghost Rider”. Nicolas Cage will again don the flamin’ skull.

According to Variety, the sequel will be based on a “Ghost Rider” script that Goyer wrote several years ago.

Goyer and “Blade” director Stephen Norrington were onboard an earlier incarnation of “Ghost Rider”. At the time, Goyer had some pretty radical ideas for the project – ideas which didn’t go down extremely well with fans (but after the first “Ghost Rider”, those same fans are probably more open to trying something new now… no?).

“He’s probably not always going to be in black leather”, Goyer told EON Magazine back in 2000. ”What’s interesting about how we’re talking about portraying the Ghost Rider, when he is the Ghost Rider he is a skeleton. We’re treating the flames as if there were still muscle and sinew on his body, but it was translucent and the flames comprise the muscle and sinew. So there’s like a little bit of a three-dimensional quality. It’s like if you can envision blue flames constantly coursing over him, but the blue flames kind of form the sinews around the skeleton. Also, the flame itself is going to have a performance element so as he gets angrier he’s going to sort of flame up even more and when he’s calm it’ll die down. He’s probably not going to speak as the Ghost Rider either, or if he does it’s only going to be one line. He’s not going to talk like he does in the comics.”

Apparently Goyer wrote ‘two’ versions of a “Ghost Rider” film back in the day.
