Nicolas Cage Talks "Ghost Rider"

by | June 17, 2005 | Comments

ComingSoon‘s Andrew Weil sat down for a chat with actor the ever-busy Nicolas Cage, and the actor gave up some pretty interesting information regarding next year’s "Ghost Rider" adaptation: "Well, he’s the devil’s bounty hunter. One of his rules is that he will never take a human being’s life. But he will go after demons, other demons, and this movie’s loaded with what they call The Hidden, which are these elemental demons that Mephistopheles, or Black Heart, Mephistopheles’ son, is using, and so the Ghost Rider goes into battle with them more than the people."

And regarding the hero’s weapons against the forces of evil? " He has these wonderful abilities, like hellfire and the chain that he can use and swing, and then he has the penance stare, where you can look at someone and make them review every bad, horrible thing they’ve ever done to anybody and then feel it and feel the pain of all their mistakes and sins and basically reduce you to a human jellyfish."

"Ghost Rider," which also stars Wes Bentley ("American Beauty"), Sam Elliott ("Road House"), and Peter Fonda ("Easy Rider"), is presently scheduled for release in August 2006. Mark Steven Johnson ("Daredevil") wrote the screenplay and directed "Ghost Rider" as well. Check out ComingSoon for the full interview.
