Ghost Rider Sequel Budget Trimmed?

by SuperHeroHype

Oct 27th, 2010

Spirit of Vengeance receives the green light

TheWrap is reporting that Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance has received the green light though at a budget lower than was initially thought:

The first film in 2007 set up Cage as stunt motorcyclist Johnny Blaze, who gives up his soul to be come a vigilante. That film had an estimated budget of $110 million, and grossed $115 million domestically, and a total of $229 million worldwide.

The budget has been cut from $135 million to a leaner $75 million, according to a knowledgeable insider.

(Even Nic Cage had to take a serious haircut to reprise Johnny Blaze, down from his $12 million fee to what one knowledgeable insider said was $7 million. CAA was presumably not very happy.)


Written and directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the sequel stars Nicolas Cage, Ciaran Hinds, Violante Placido, Idris Elba and Johnny Whitworth. It is scheduled for a February 17, 2012 release.

Nicolas Cage on Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

by SuperHeroHype

Jan 7th, 2011

Will feature a new origin sequence for Johnny Blaze

While promoting this week's release of Season of the Witch, Nicolas Cage spoke with UKPA and offered a few updates on the upcoming Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.

Cage told the outlet that the sequel would depart from the 2007 original in several major ways, including offering a brand-new origin sequence reinvisioned by the directing pair of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. What's more, Cage promises some "wild" filming techniques.

"The director's on rollerblades," he said, "and hanging from wires with the camera, holding on to the motorcycle..."

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is planned for release on February 17, 2012.

An Alternate Synopsis for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Source: Shock Till You Drop

February 1, 2011

This is what we know about Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, the Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor-directed sequel based on the Marvel Comics character.

The film sees Johnny Blaze, aka Ghost Rider (Nicolas Cage), hiding out in remote Eastern Europe and struggling to repress his curse. Blaze is recruited by a sect to take on the devil (Ciaran Hinds), who wants to take over his mortal son's body on the kid's birthday.

Today, we've score a look at another official synopsis that's being bandied about by the film's sale's agent Hyde Park International.

It's been several years since making a deal with the Devil and Johnny Blaze (Nic Cage), living in self-imposed isolation, finds himself as the only person who can help save 10-year old Danny – and ultimately the world – thanks to his unwanted and uncontrollable power – his ability to transform into the hell-on-wheels monster known as The Ghost Rider.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance opens on February 17, 2012.

Nicolas Cage Will Play Dual Roles In Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

by SuperHeroHype

Feb 24th, 2011

Cage will plays the demon and Johnny Blaze simultaneously

While promoting his new film, Drive Angry, Nicolas Cage dropped an interesting plot detail about the currently-in-production Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. The actor told Fearnet that the film offers him the chance to play the Ghost Rider demon separate from Johnny Blaze.

"There's an exorcism scene I just did where Johnny Blaze is being exorcized," says Cage, "And then I also play Ghost Rider, who's the spirit of Zarathos, who's a corrupted angel. So it's like completely different entities. The movie is not like anything I've done before."

The sequel, which is now in production, is being shot in 3D for a February 17, 2012 release. In addition to cage, it stars Ciaran Hinds, Violante Placido, Idris Elba and Johnny Whitworth and featured the writing and directing team of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.

Iloura to Create Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance Effects

by SuperHeroHype

Feb 27th, 2011

Australian company is on board

Illoura has announced that it will create special effects for Sony's Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance:

In another win for Australia’s talented VFX industry, Iloura today announced it had been appointed as one of the VFX studios on Ghost RiderTM: Spirit of Vengeance.

Iloura’s executive producer, Simon Rosenthal, said that this project would see the studio’s continued growth in capacity as more artists join the studio to complete the 500 plus shots on the film and well as continue work on The Killer Elite and other projects.

"Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance presents us with another tremendous opportunity to work on a complex, Hollywood CG project. Being appointed as one of the studios is an acknowledgement of Iloura’s growing reputation in delivering high quality visual effects,” says Rosenthal.

This project comes on the back of Iloura’s Emmy Nominated work on HBO’s The Pacific and recent feature film projects Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark with Guillermo Del Toro as well as 3D feature film Sanctum which was executive produced by James Cameron.

Nicolas Cage returns as Johnny Blaze in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. In the successor to the worldwide hit Ghost Rider, Johnny – still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter – is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciara?n Hinds). At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy – and possibly rid himself of his curse forever. Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor direct from a screenplay by Scott M. Gimple & Seth Hoffman and Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor, and a story by David S. Goyer, based on the Marvel Comic. Steven Paul, Ashok Amritraj, Michael De Luca, Avi Arad and Ari Arad are the producers. The executive producers are E. Bennett Walsh, David S. Goyer, Stan Lee, Mohammed Mubarak Al Mazrouei, Edward Borgerding, and Mark Steven Johnson. The film will be distributed by Columbia Pictures and Hyde Park Entertainment.


You can check out the company's website for more on their previous work.

Johnny Whitworth on Playing Blackout in Ghost Rider 2

Source: ShockTillYouDrop

March 24, 2011

Johnny Whitworth is no stranger to the Neveldine/Taylor team - the guys who gave us Crank. The actor starred in Pathology which Mark (Neveldine) and Brian (Taylor) produced, and he appeared in Gamer. Next up, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Shock Till You Drop's Scott Huver caught up to the actor to chat a bit about his villainous role in the upcoming sequel.

Question: After 'Limitless' what are we going to see you in? What's coming up?

Johnny Whitworth: Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. I just wrapped that four days ago. In Romania. In Turkey.

Question: I got asked to go there but I couldn't go.

Whitworth: Oh, man. And I was totally in this character blackout makeup and I didn't get to go to that. I had to bow out. I was like, 'I'm not going to do interviews as this guy.' But man that would've been cool if you would have been there. So you know the movie?

Question: Yeah, so tell me a little bit about what was cool about that experience for you?

Whitworth: Oh, Nic Cage, Nic Cage and Nic Cage because Nic Cage is awesome. I got to be a comic book character. I mean that's part of the partial reason why I got into- not to be a comic, but the things that inspired me as a youngster, the things and the things that I was into, one being comics and of that nature and pretend and that's the ultimate way. Because he's bad and I get to be even extra bad. So I'm human and then I turn into Blackout and then he's bad and then he's just horrible.

Question: Did you read the 'Ghost Rider' comic books? I guess the '90s were one of the hey days and then like back in the '70s, too.

Whitworth: Right. You know to be honest with you, I didn't really. My little brother did and that's where I got my influence before I knew him. My little brother was into 'Ghost Rider'. I was 'Batman'. Not to switch-

Question: Superheroes on me?

Whitworth: Yeah, well, superheroes is okay. But there's a different brand. There's Marvel and there's DC. And I just jumped into a different universe. So that might have been bad. Next time I'll prepare not to do that.

Question: I just talked to Nic for 'Drive Angry' last week. And it's very interesting to hear his acting process and why he chooses his roles. Did you get a chance to study him at work and see where he looks to make interesting decisions in his performance and find those quirky little moments to really elevate?

Whitworth: Let me think about that. You know, Nic is kind of such an interesting character as himself. And not that he plays himself, but that as a springboard lends itself to interesting choices. So I don't know if he looks for things or just more for- he looks for the experience of doing things, you know. And I would tend to believe he looks for the experience.

Question: What was the coolest thing you got to do in character for the film?

Whitworth: Oh, well, which character? I mean I'm one guy and then I turn into another guy.

Question: Okay. Well, tell me both.

Whitworth: Well, I had a moment just near the end where- I don't know. I'm giving spoilers.

Question: Don't give it away.

Whitworth: What can I do? Just looking down the face of Ghost Rider, Nic Cage, doing- in this one he does all his Ghost Rider stuff. The one before he didn't. So it has his body language and his feel. With that it's already better. When I was in the human form just before something hap- well, I don't know how to answer that question. I wasn't prepared to without giving spoilers. But looking down in the face of Nic Cage when he's about to throw me and I did my own stunts, when he's going to throw, discard me, if you will, as Ghost Rider and doing this thing when I'm pleading and beating. And then there's fire. I think there's going to be a lot. It's hard to choose from, really. Because all this stuff is rushing back to my head. And I've been in Romania for so long that part of my faculty- it does seem like a dream.

Following confirmation this morning that The Amazing Spider-Man will have a major presence at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, comes word, straight from the Twitter feed of directing pair Neveldine/Taylor, that the "evolved" Ghost Rider from the upcoming Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance will be debuting his new look there as well.
