Cage: Ship's sailed on Ghost Rider

Nicolas Cage says he's made his last Ghost Rider film

Nicolas Cage has said he's "done" with his role in the Ghost Rider movies.

The Croods actor has played Ghost Rider/Johnny Blaze in two films but told MTV News he would not star in a third film.

"I think the ship has sailed on that one," he said. "At least with me involved."

Nicolas didn't rule out the possibility of another film in the supernatural superhero series, but said he wouldn't be working on it.

He said: "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."

The second film - Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance - received plenty of negative reviews when it was released last year but the actor insisted he was proud of the movie.

"Contrary to whatever the perception is, that was an enormously successful movie," he said.

"We made it for, like, 47 or 48 million dollars, and it approached 200 million dollars. 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 (directors) Mark Neveldine and Bryan Taylor, that they were able to accomplish that."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
