Exclusive video interview: Nicolas Cage on Ghost Rider


Above, you can watch an exclusive video interview with Nicolas Cage.

In said video, the Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance star talks about the appeal of Johnny Blaze, and explains inspiration that was channelled into his crazed performance.

“It’s kind of a philosophical superhero,” says Cage. “This is a pretty psychedelic movie, which in this day and age is quite brave for a studio film.”

Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance sees Cage reprising the role of Johnny Blaze, stunt motorcyclist by day, demonic avenger by night. This time round, Crank directors Bryan Taylor and Mark Neveldine are calling the shots.

If Cage's chatter has stoked your interest, you can also check out a new clip from the film, below:


Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance opens on Friday 17 February 2012.
