‘Ghost Rider 2’ Might Involve Church For European Adventure, Says Nic Cage

The sequel to 2007’s “Ghost Rider” has been in development flux for some time now — even leading some of the film’s stars to wonder if the follow-up is even happening at all — but apparently, no one mentioned this to Nic Cage.

In an interview with MTV News, Cage — who has been garnering much press with the recent announcement that he’d be joining the cast of “Kick-Ass” — talked about “Ghost Rider 2,” and if you’re to believe him, the film is most certainly going to happen — and it’ll have some help from a higher power. “There have been talks and good ones with where to go with the character,” explained the “Bangkok Dangerous” star. “It looks like it will take place in Europe and the character will work with the [Catholic] Church. It’ll be a completely new experience. It’s exciting.”

While the film is still in its very early stages — no major “official” announcements have been made — Cage was happy to share with MTV everything he knew so far about the next adventures of Johnny Blaze — a former stuntman who, after a deal with Mephistopheles, becomes the vengeance-seeking Ghost Rider. “It hasn’t progressed to [who the next villain will be] yet to be able to say, but I do know it will be shot in Europe and there will be some sort of connection working with different religious figures,” he hinted.
