Brian Taylor Dishes On ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’

2 min read

News out of the new Ghost Rider movie has certainly been interesting the last couple of weeks and the films co-director is chatting up the project a bit more through an interview for a podcast, which you can see the video side of at the bottom. The clip covers a lot of material over the sixty minutes it runs total, but the Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance material can be culled down to a few key bits that definitely give some hope for a proper interpretation.

“We basically said, we want to do it, [would] absolutely love to do it, but it’s gotta be 100% different from the first movie, everything, except for Nic. We want the character to look different, feel different, sound different. The backstory of the character’s different, the origin of the story is expanded upon in ways that the first movie didn’t hint at, at all. The location’s different, the whole cast is different; the only thing that’s the same is Nic…It’s pretty much a reboot, only with the same actor, which makes it: a requel. Or a seboot, I can’t decide which one I like better.”

When talking about the first movie, they’re pretty clears about what they want to take from it, which is basically nothing other than Nic Cage himself.

“The first attraction was Nic and the second was the character and just how cool it could be. [I wanted to] kinda make the Ghost Rider movie that I wished I had seen before.” “The reports of the budget of Ghost Rider have been greatly exaggerated. It’s about the same as [Gamer]. We didn’t have a lot of money to make this film…but we’re pretty creative. It’s gonna look fuckin’ huge.”

And for those wondering when we’ll see more than some on-set shots and the like, with post-production gearing up now and special effects since all of the principal photography is done, it looks like Comic-Con is where it’s going to be at this year:

“[Blackout’s] a fun character. His powers are pretty cool, we did things with his powers that aren’t in the original comic books…We’re gonna do a huge splash at the Comic-Con. That’s when we really want people to see what the new, evolved Ghost Rider looks like as well as the first peeks at the villains.”
