Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3D in Dracula country?
Sometimes actors reveal a little too much about films in pre-production and production when they're talking to the press, and sometimes they embellish things, nay even sometimes they lie, and I'm curious to hear where these comments from Nicolas Cage end up being, for they are interesting.
He revealed that the Ghost Rider sequel, which will be filmed in 3D – wooo – is to be filmed in Romania. Now that's not a huge surprise if you realise that it's very cheap to film there, but he goes on and suggests that the story is there for a reason, Dracula.
Not only are they filming Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance in 3D and in Romania, but Nicolas Cage said that his character will be riding up the side of Dracula's castle. Now does that mean that they're really going to include the character? Ghost Rider versus Dracula?
”I'll be filming it in Romania, which is exciting, since that's where Dracula's castle is...The Ghost Rider has to ride up to Dracula's castle.”
Yes he did say that to MTV through Bloody Disgusting. Ghost Rider will drive up the side of Dracula's castle, and surely that means that Ghost Rider is going to encounter the undead character, and if they are filming in Romania then will the whole film feature the character?
Perhaps so, after all there is a strong connection with death and the undead (straws; clutching), however I just don't see the two characters fitting together well in one film do you?
The good things going for this sequel though are Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the guys behind Crank (Filmstalker review), Crank 2: High Voltage, Gamer and the script for Jonah Hex. Could they pull off Ghost Rider versus Dracula? In 3D?!
