|Nicolas Cage and 'Crank' duo taking on 'Ghost Rider' sequel (exclusive)|
Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor are in early negotiations to direct Columbia’s “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance,” the sequel to the studio’s 2007 supernatural action movie starring the Marvel Comics character.
Nicolas Cage is in early negotiations to reprise his role as Johnny Blaze, a stunt motorcyclist who, in order to save the life of a loved one, makes a deal with the devil. His soul is twinned with that of a demon, and he becomes a flaming-skulled man driving a motorcycle from hell.
Plot details are under wraps, and it is not known if any other character from the previous movie will return.
While the dealmaking is in the preliminary stages, the studio hopes to get principal photography going by late fall.
"Rider," released in February 2007 to poor reviews, grossed almost $230 million worldwide. The studio faced a ticking clock scenario in where if it didn't act on a sequel soon, the rights to the franchise would have reverted to Marvel. It even considered the possibility of going ahead without Cage.
David Goyer wrote the story. Neveldine and Taylor are writers as well as directors, and the duo may do a rewrite, although that has not been determined at this stage.
Avi Arad, Ari Arad, Michael De Luca and Steven Paul are producing. Goyer and Mark Steven Johnson are exec producing.
Neveldine and Taylor, repped by UTA, are known their for their adrenaline-fueled Jason Statham-starring action movies “Crank” and “Crank: High Voltage.” The pair wrote “Jonah Hex,” the Warner Bros. Western action movie starring Josh Brolin and Megan Fox that opens this Friday.
Comic book fan Cage, repped by CAA, next stars in Disney’s “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.”
