Neveldine/Taylor’s upcoming Ghost Rider sequel is scheduled for a UK release on February next year, and promises to be better than the first movie by removing one of the biggest flaws in the underwhelming original live action adaptation: Nicolas Cage’s face.
Ghost Rider: Spirits of Vengeance will be an animated feature, so there will be no need for Nicolas Cage’s annoying facial tics and overacting. The new animated movie is not a reboot, though. It is a direct sequel to the story built by the Cage movie, and will follow Johnny Blaze as he hides in Eastern Europe, only to be recruited by a religious sect that wants the Ghost Rider to rescue a young boy from Satan’s clutches.
You can find out more about the story as more info and possibly a trailer comes in the following weeks, or you can check out the movie itself when it arrives in UK cinemas on February 2012.
