Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance plot and devil casting
There's some casting news online regarding the new Ghost Rider film and with it comes more details of the plot. Now while it wouldn't normally tickle my fancy, there's something rather surprising about the casting for the role of the devil in the story that has me thinking. Could this be good? Better than the first surely, but good?
Considering that the actor in negotiations for the role is none other than the excellent Ciaran Hinds, you have to consider the possibility that Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance could be good. Then there's the plot.
Apparently the story will having nothing to do with Dracula or Vlad the Impaler as had been rumoured, but in fact will see Johnny Cage trying to stay clear of everyone and hiding out in Eastern Europe when a group try and enlist his help in trying to stop the devil from taking over the body of an innocent boy, and the boy just happens to be Cage's son.
Oh the convenience. The story was written by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor from an idea by David Goyer. According to The Hollywood Reporter Heat Vision through Empire the Italian singer and actress Violante Placido is also set to join the cast.
If Ciaran Hinds were to join Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance then that's a damn strong actor for the cast, and that does suggest that there's something more to it than the previous film, or a very big paycheck. Which do you think?
