Nic Cage ‘Done’ With Ghost Rider

Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage has put on the leather and flaming skull for the last time.

“Personally, I’m done,” the actor, who starred as Johnny Blaze in Ghost Rider and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, told MTV. “I’ve done what I had to do with that part. You never say never, but right now, today, I would say that I’m done.”

Don’t get him wrong, Cage isn’t embarrassed by the 2011 sequel, directed by Crank and Gamer helmers Mark Neveldine and Bryan Taylor. “Contrary to whatever the perception is, that was an enormously successful movie,” Cage said. “We made it for, like, $47 or $48 million, and it approached $200 million. I view that as a success. I think people need to know we did that on a shoestring budget. When you look at it that way you see the enormous talent of Mark Neveldine and Bryan Taylor, that they were able to accomplish that.”

Cage said that his lack of involvement wouldn’t and shouldn’t inhibit another film from being made and even had a suggestion for ways to continue the story. “It would be interesting if they did it with a female Ghost Rider,” he said.

    I didn’t care for either movie storywise but I really liked the way the second movie was shot. 
    Very cool cinematography.

    Personally I’m done with seeing Nic Cage in anything. In the last few years it’s been obvious that he’s just in it for the paycheck in the way he just phones it in with every role he’s played in the last few movies he’s been cast in.

    Really? Really? You’re actually saying he’s “phoning” in his many performances as of late. Who the hell are you to make this statement? Wait..I know who you are. You’re the person…speaking the absolute truth! Wow, I have been shaking my head from the disappointment of watching some of these past movies. Lewis4510 did not lie.

    My life is over…if he is done with the Ghost Rider, then so am I. And thats saying alot..Normally, your couldnt seperate me from the Ghost Rider if you payed me a million dollars. I think that he was Absolutly perfect for the role in the first one, and the second one, he was the only good thing about it. and I would LOVE to see him in a 3rd one. If hes not..Im done
