We haven’t heard anything solid on Ghost Rider 2 for a while, even though we knew Columbia were interested in making it. Now THR are reporting that David Goyer (The Dark Knight, Blade trilogy) is in early talks to create the story and supervise writers for a film.
Through a spokesperson, Goyer said he hadn’t signed on yet. But plans are already under way to base the sequel on a “Ghost Rider” script written years ago by Goyer, whose superhero work includes hit screen transfers of DC’s “Batman Begins” and Marvel’s “Blade” franchise. The original “Ghost Rider” was scripted by director Mark Steven Johnson.
When the first film was released in 2007 it got mostly negative reviews, but in the end it made around $230 million worldwide (not including DVD sales) so a sequel will probably give everyone involved a nice paycheck. People such as Nicolas Cage, who will be back as the fire skull man.
