I was in the minority when it came to Ghost Rider, a few years back. It worked as a western, a biker flick, and a superhero movie. I also love the work of the Crank guys, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. So I was pretty stoked to see Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.
If you loved the manic energy and subversive style of the Crank movies – and the dark satire of Gamer, for that matter – then you’ll love this: according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision blog, the co-directors of those films, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, are in talks to direct Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Nicholas Cage is in early talks to star in the sequel as well.
