The sequel to "Ghost Rider," called "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance," is currently filming in Romania and we now have the first video from the set, showing Nicolas Cage and his motorcycle. Check out the video below.
In the new movie, Johnny Blaze (Cage) is hiding out in remote Eastern Europe and is struggling to repress his curse. He is then recruited by a sect to take on the devil (Ciaran Hinds), who wants to take over his mortal son's body on the boy's birthday.
"Ghost Rider 2" is directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank), and is scheduled to hit 2D and 3D theaters on February 17th, 2012.
I see they're going for a bike more similar to Dan Ketches, Neveldine and Taylor are good directors/writers, I'm excited to see their take on it, I hope Vengeance is in it, there's no better villain for GR to face.

I think they have an idea of how to avoid the mistakes of the last film.
Then why is Nicky Cage in it?
A. Rack that up to poor choice by the casting director.

"Nick Cage makes a great Johnny Blaze. It wasn't Cage that ruined the last GR film. It was Wes Bentley and a cornball musical score that f*cked it up."
No offense, but you say the dumbest things, Rabid.
No, it was Cage's atrocious acting and grating personality, along with an abomination of a script and story, and Mendes' unlikeable and bland character (but primarily a TERRIBLE story) that sunk the first film.
Music only matters if everything else sucks. In other words, you could possibly enjoy a film with mediocre or sub-par, or even inappropriate, music, but nothing can overcome a bad story, a terrible script and a ridiculous lead, all of which the first film provided, to the audiences bleeding consternation.
I thought the first film was reasonably crap.....so why am i mildly excited by the prospect of another? :S

I disagree Mink. I think a musical score in a film can make a break a scene and entire film to me.
I remember watching the Thomas Jane "The Punisher" (which was a bad film anyways) but what really killed it was the film score. There were several scenes that if the score had been better, it migh have been ok.
Some of the most memorable films I have seen are linked to their score.

I disagree too Mink. Zombieland was a great film, but the music...... ooooh the music. Every time that sh*t played played I felt gay watching the movie, but when it stopped all was better. Same with Wedding Crashers.
The music in Fight Club however, didn't make the film better, I'm sure there was no chance of that. But when it did play I dunno.... the movie felt cool. The music was badass, and it fit so good whenever it played in a scene.
Pros and Cons right there buddy, music has everything to do with a film. Most likely would be no point in it's presence if otherwise.
But I feel kinda stupid now, I went through that because of disagreement over "personal taste". Which an argument over is pretty ridiculous. Damn.
