Nicolas Cage keen on making Ghost Rider 3

Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance smashes into UK cinemas this Friday, and its star Nicolas Cage is apparently already looking to get back in action for a third round as the flame-skulled anti-hero.

“I know Nic wants to do it, he's very pumped about it,” says co-director Mark Neveldine. “We'll just wait to see how well [ this ] does.”

Cage was famously keen to get the Ghost Rider series back on the track after the disappointing original, and he seems to have found the ideal duo for the franchise in Crank helmers Neveldine and Bryan Taylor.

The love appears to be mutual. “He's such an incredible force,” says Taylor. “When you've got a weapon like that, you don't want to leave anything on the table.”

From what we’ve seen so far of Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance , it wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing for these three to get together again for a third round of comic book action. Watch this space.

Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance opens 17 February 2012.
