'Ghost Rider' Co-Director Goes Evil Car Bashing With 'Twisted Metal'!

 Ghost Rider Co Director Goes Evil Car Bashing With Twisted Metal!

It kind of makes sense, other than the fact that nearly everyone I’ve talked with despised Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3D.

Deadline is reporting that Sony Pictures has made a preemptive 7-figure deal for Spirit of Vengeance co-director Brian Taylor to write and direct a live action adaptation of the iconic video game Twisted Metal!

Ghost Rider’s Avi and Ari Arad are producing the adaptation of the game, which has been published in various configurations by Sony Computer and is one of the biggest selling video games. The newest version of the game was just released today for PlayStation 3.

Like the game, “the film will revolve around an underground event that pits a number of combatants in a fight to the death. They are outfitted in armored weaponized cars that are pimped out with heavy weaponry that includes missiles and machine guns. Some drop mines or launch electrical charges. The proprietor of the race is Calypso, a string-puller dedicating to examining the human condition, such as what makes a peaceful man violent, what terrifies a violent man and who will make a Faustian bargain in which they risk their lives. The sole survivor will get any wish granted.

They also reveal that the film will include such signature contestant characters as Sweet Tooth, a homicidal clown who drives an ice cream truck, and Doll Face, a young woman who is trapped behind a porcelain mask and who drives an 18-wheeler. READ MORE

gridernewhires011612 Three Brief & Fiery TV Spots For Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance

It has been several years since making a deal with the Devil and Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage), living in self-imposed isolation, finds himself as the only person who can help save 10-year-old Danny – and ultimately the world – thanks to his unwanted and uncontrollable power – his ability to transform into the hell-on-wheels monster known as The Ghost Rider.

Winning Fan-Made 'Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance' Poster

Justin P. from Islip, NY has won the Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance “Face Of The Fan” contest. Below you’ll find his fan-made poster creation featuring a 3-D stylized look at Ghost Rider.

From Crank directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3D stars Nicolas Cage, Ciaran Hinds, Violante Placido, Idris Elba, and Johnny Whitworth.

In theaters February 17, “In the successor to the worldwide hit ‘Ghost Rider,’ Johnny – still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter – is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciaran Hinds). At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy – and possibly rid himself of his curse forever.READ MORE

'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance' Standee an Assault on Your Senses

 Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance Standee an Assault on Your Senses

The main thing I miss about theaters in the ’90s was how I’d walk through the lobby before a movie checking out all of the cool new posters and standees. I’m not sure how it is by you guys, but in Los Angeles most theaters cater to local business instead of upcoming movies, so I don’t get that experience a whole lot, but all I know is that I’d love to have seen the new Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance standee at a theater near me.

As displayed below, it boasts a full image of the darker and grittier Ghost Rider, played again by Nicolas Cage (but actually a bunch of people behind a computer screen with a mouse).

Directed by Crank‘s Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, “still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter – is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciaran Hinds). At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy – and possibly rid himself of his curse forever.

Columbia Pictures slated the 3-D sequel for release on February 17, 2012. READ MORE

First 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance' Clip Gets Charred Up and Spit Out!

 First Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance Clip Gets Charred Up and Spit Out!

I absolutely hated Sony’s 2007 Ghost Rider, so much so that it took the above wicked photo of Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze to rejuvenate my interest. Having just premiered on the Spike TV Scream Awards, the first ever clip from Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is burning up the internet, and while I’m still skeptical, at least now I’m excited…

Arriving in a blaze of fury on February 17, 2012, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor direct this time around and have apparently delivered something much more gritty than its predecessor. This charred-up and spit out version of Ghost Rider looks beyond rad, while maintaining that comic book atmosphere. What do you think of the clip?

In the successor to the worldwide hit ‘Ghost Rider,’ Johnny – still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter – is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciaran Hinds).

Nicolas Cage Talks "Wild" Filming Techniques for 'Ghost Rider' Sequel

While Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s Gamer was a horrible film, it was hard to ignore the “interesting” filming techniques from the directors of Crank. UKPA caught up with star Nicolas Cage on his Season of the Witch promotion tour where he talked a bit about working with the duo on the now-filming Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3D. Cage explains that Neveldine and Taylor will continue using their “wild” techniques: “The director’s on rollerblades and hanging from wires with the camera, holding on to the motorcycle and it’s going to be really wild.” The star also promised the sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance, would be quite different from the first film. “(It’s going to be) very different. A completely new experience and that’s how the directors choose to see it. I mean there’s even a new origin sequence.” We’ll see just how different it is on February 17, 2012.

Jonah Hex

Hex, known for having the right side of his face disfigured and wearing a Confederate army uniform, was a rough-and-tumble gunslinger and part-time bounty hunter whose adventures always ended in blood.

Scarred bounty hunter Jonah Hex (Brolin) is charged with tracking and hunting down his oldest enemy who is preparing to unleash Hell.

Jonah Hex is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone… and anything. Having survived death, Jonah’s violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the “other side.” His only human connection is with Lila, whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. Jonah’s past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can’t refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull. But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah’s oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead.
