Ghost Rider 2 is 'very different'

Nicolas Cage

Ghost Rider 2 is remarkably different from the original, said the film's co-director Brian Taylor.

Brian and directing partner Mark Neveldine took a new approach for the sequel Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance, in which Nicolas Cage will reprise his role as Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider, following on from the first film's disappointing response at the box office.

"We basically said, we want to do it, absolutely love to do it, but it's gotta be 100 per cent different from the first movie, everything, except for Nic," he told ThinkHero.com.

"We want the character to look different, feel different, sound different. The back story 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."

In Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance, to be released in 2012, Nicolas' alter-ego comes out of his self-imposed isolation to help save 10-year-old boy Danny from the Devil (played by Ciaran Hinds).
