Ghost Rider 2 - Cage shares his thoughts

The first Ghost Rider film was pretty bad. I so wanted it to be good as I always loved the comic. Yet the film was just a mess of bad effects, poor story and wonky acting.

With regards to Ghost Rider 2 Sony and Nicolas Cage were still looking for a writer and director to helm the sequel.

Now the actor told MTV News that he’s looking less toward “sequel” and more toward “reboot” for the next film.

“I would like to do a reconceive,” Cage told MTV News. “I would like to go in a whole other direction, and I think that’s what they’re talking about.”

According to Cage, he’s still leaning toward a Ghost Rider movie that brings the skull-faced Marvel Comics hero to Europe for a team-up with Catholic Church.

“I would make it much less of a Western and more of an international story,” said Cage of the direction he’d take the character for the next film.

They should definitely try and use some of the storylines from recent issues of the comic as they have been superb.

What do you want to see in a Ghost Rider sequel? Should Cage still be in it? How could they make it better? Should it be a sequel or a reboot?
