Ghost Rider 2 could be without Nic Cage

Looks like Ghost Rider is running out of time. The rights Sony holds over the franchise expire soon and Cage is busy as hell trying to remind us how good an actor he is. Fortunately for us, that includes NOT doing Ghost Rider just yet.

Chud says:

November 14 is the date when the Ghost Rider rights will revert from Sony to Marvel… unless the Japanese corporate giant has a movie in production by that date. And Sony is so serious about meeting that date they’re thinking of going ahead with Ghost Rider 2 even if Nic Cage isn’t available.

Ok, so unless Sony wants to dish some serious coin to Cage to get him to sidetrack National Treasure 3, Sony has to make the movie without him. They have to be “in production” on that date or Marvel gets their toys back.

And with all the franchise rebooting going around, this would be a perfect opportunity to restart Ghost Rider without Cage.

This is also a great chance to forget about Eva Mendez’s lousy acting (but you are free to remember her slinky dress, swaying hips and attitude strut swagger – hot) and the weak script that totally wasted the classic horseback Ghost Rider to an anticlimactic “this is as far as I go” last ride.

But they will likely just sequel it in a desperate attempt to keep the rights, and get someone else to play Cage.

Maybe they will just let it go. But not likely.
