Columbia Pictures has begun to rev the throttle on a second installment of the Marvel Comics character Ghost Rider. David Goyer (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) is in early talks to create the story and supervise writers for a film expected to once again star Nicolas Cage (as we first reported here), who played the highly flammable cyclist in the 2007 original. Through a spokesperson, Goyer said he hadn’t signed on yet. But plans are already under way to base the sequel on a “Ghost Rider” script written years ago by Goyer, whose superhero work includes hit screen transfers of DC’s “Batman Begins” and Marvel’s “Blade” franchise. The original “Ghost Rider” was scripted by director Mark Steven Johnson. The activity on “Ghost Rider” follows a flurry of activity on Marvel characters at almost every studio but Disney, which acquired Marvel Entertainment in a $4 billion deal.
