Ghost Rider 2 finally gearing up

Nic Cage has been talking about it for a while now, but Sony is finally, officially laying plans for another Ghost Rider film.

Bloody Disgusting tracked down word from the studio that the film is now officially in the early stages with the project out to writers.

Cage has been discussing the concept - which he thinks could work as Johnny Blaze goes to Europe - since September, as we've reported in the past.

And while the first film didn't exact burn with quality, it did enough box office to warrant a sequel.

There’s no word on whether original writer/director Mark Steven Johnson will be involved this time – he didn’t return for Daredevil spin-off Elektra (probably wise), but with Cage signed up, this one looks likely to get moving soon.
