Ghost Rider 2 is ‘a different trajectory’

Ghost Rider 2 is ‘a different trajectory’
Clint

I’ve heard in the past few days that Sony may be considering bringing Johnny Blaze back to Australia – and while I’m all for pouring some money back into our local economy, and would be damn happy to see local industrians get work, I sure as hell hope that Melbourne’s not being eyed again because the producers are planning on spending as little as it takes to get the job done. Again. Last thing we need is for “Ghost Rider 2″ to be as cheap, rushed and embarrassing (particularly for the Melbournian actors that are thrown a few bucks to don a wonky Yankee accent) as the 2006 film… lest we forget it.

To be the fair though, the film is already off to a better start than the first flick. Instead of Mark Steven Johnson directing, we’ve got “Crank” duo Neveldine & Taylor; and rather than shooting Johnson’s words, the sequel’s being written by a comic-book movie pro, “Batman Begins” scribe David Goyer (in fact, Goyer wrote the script 9 years ago; makes you wonder why they didn’t just use his script first time around!?). Nicolas Cage is back as Blaze – but I suppose we can live with that. After all, Johnny Depp’s – who was dead keen on the part about a decade ago – never gonna do it now (particularly if there’s no money to be had).

Cage tells MTV that “Ghost Rider : Spirit of Vengeance” (notice they’re not adding a “2” to the title!? smart!) will deviate from the first film.

“I like it very much, very much,” Cage said about the script for the sequel. “By the way, I’m not knocking the first one, whatever people think. I stand by that movie as well. I thought it was a Faustian fairytale, like, if Disney were to make a movie about Faust, it would be in that vein, like a Western and a little lighter.”

Cage said he’s excited to be working with Neveldine and Taylor.

“I’m very excited about those two,” he shared. ” ‘Cause they’re originals, and they know how to make a movie look great, and they know how to use a camera. And I think they’ll have a fresh, a very fresh take on the character.”

As for the storyline, the “National Treasure” star is keeping Mum.

“It’s a different trajectory, but it’s still the same guy,” he promised. “That’s all I can talk about!”

Ah, so it’s the ‘Never Say Never Again’ of comic book flicks then!?

“Ghost Rider : Spirit of Vengeance” shoots in November….. either in Australia or not in Australia.
