‘Ghost Rider 2′ Gets Leaner

GhostRIDERkaAccording to The Wrap, Sony Pictures has teamed up with Hyde Park Entertainment (PREMONITION), to cofinance and produce GHOST RIDER:  SPIRIT OF VENGANCE.

 

The 3-D sequel to 2007’s GHOST RIDER has also  had it’s budget reduced to a reported $75 Million, down from an original estimate of aproximately $135 Million.

Shooting in Europe, and using the efficent directing team of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (CRANK, GAMER) might figure into the new budget, which sounds more in line with the audience the film can be expected to attract; a very respectable showing,  but not a blockbuster.

Hyde Park will have the international distrubution rights, while Sony will keep the domestic rights.

Nicolas Cage returns as hero Johnny Blaze, joined by  Idris Elba, Ciaran Hinds and Placido Violante.

GHOST RIDER:  SPIRIT OF VENGANCE  is being produced by Mike deLuca, Avi Arad and Hyde Park Entertainment’s Ashok Armitraj.

Sony Pictures has not yet commented on the report, so treat this as unconfirmed as yet.
