Ghost Rider Sequel Set for the Con

In Panel & Autograph News by Jeremy Rutz2 Comments

The Ghost Rider sequel, scheduled to hit theaters in 2012, looks like it will be giving us all nightmares with some sort of presence at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the dynamic directing duo who gave us Crank and its sequel Crank 2: High Voltage, will be directing Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance with Nicolas Cage returning as Johnny Blaze.

Neveldine and Taylor posted/ the good news via a series of tweets from their official Twitter account a few days ago:

“GRSOV update: this movie is fucking badass…can’t wait to reveal the evolved GR…… comicon seems like a year away…not sure where the last one came from, but this GR comes from nightmares”

The directors have gone on record to say that this sequel will be more like a reboot, with the only thing staying the same from the original film would be Cage returning as the lead. They also said they’re going to make this sequel the movie they wanted to see, which could be good or bad depending on what you thought of the original film and their previous Crank films.

What do you think? Will you attend a panel even though the original was a massive disappointment?
