Nicolas Cage Says He's Done Playing GHOST RIDER

After starring in two critically panned Ghost Rider films, Nicolas Cage says that he's finished with playing the Marvel Comics antihero despite expecting a third film to be developed.



Speaking with MTV Splash Page, Nicolas Cage offers an update on a potential third outing as Marvel's Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider. He starred in 2007's Ghost Rider and last year's Spirit Of Vengeance - both distributed by Sony and both critically panned. Despite being talks about a third film, Cage says that he likely won't be involved. "I think the ship has sailed on that one. At least with me involved." He then expresses his thoughts on the "success" of the second movie. "Contrary to whatever the perception is, that was an enormously successful movie. We made it for, like, $47 or $48 million dollars, and it approached $200 million. I view that as a success. I think people need to know we did that on a shoestring budget. When you look at it that way you see the enormous talent of Mark Neveldine and Bryan Taylor, that they were able to accomplish that."

Cage then says that he believes that a third Ghost Rider movie will be made someday (he suggests using a female version), but his days of riding flaming motorcycles and swinging chains are over. "Personally, I'm done. I've done what I had to do with that part. You never say never, but right now, today, I would say that I'm done." You can next see Cage in Dreamworks' The Croods on March 22nd. Are you disappointed that he likely won't play Ghost Rider again?
