Nicolas Cage Wants to 'Reconceive' the Ghost Rider Sequel
Is that even a real word? Nicolas Cage just told MTV in a recent interview that, "I would like to do a reconceive" on Ghost Rider 2. If you remember (you probably don't), back in January it was reported that Sony was moving forward with a Ghost Rider sequel, despite the pleas of fans everywhere to forget it and move on. Cage added in the interview that, "I would like to go in a whole other direction, and I think that’s what they’re talking about." He didn't want to say much more, but from the sounds of it, it seems like they (or maybe just Cage) want to reboot (which is another word for "reconceive") this franchise in a sequel.
I know, I know, no one wants to see Ghost Rider 2 ever get made. When asked what he might do to make things different, Cage said that, "I would make it much less of a western and more of an international story," whatever that means. I've heard some rumors that he wants to take the Ghost Rider character to the Vatican or otherwise. As I said back in January, the character has a lot of potential, so if even Cage knows that the first one was a giant piece of crap, then maybe he can help get the sequel on the right track. And with that in mind, maybe a reboot or "reconceive" could actually result in a better movie. Who knows?
