Fans of Marvel Comics’ supernatural cyclist Ghost Rider have always known what a cool character he’s been in the comics, mainly because of that incredible visual of a leather-clad biker on a chopper with a flaming skull head. Even if Sony’s first Ghost Rider movie may have left some fans disappointed, the character still has so much potential, which may be why Sony decided to revisit the character with Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance, a sequel that’s not a sequel – or at least not that anyone working on the movie wants it to be thought of as one.
But it’s not exactly a reboot either, because they brought back Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze, the stuntman who gets transformed into the Hell Cycle-riding deliverer of justice and vengeance, but they brought on Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the duo behind the high-energy “Crank” films, to infuse some much-needed energy into the franchise. The production would take them to Romania and Turkey where they would be able to use some of their crazy filmmaking techniques in some of the most amazing locations. It was in Bucharest, Romania where ComingSoon.net’s SuperHeroHype caught up with the production to see what Neveldine and Taylor had been getting up to. While there, we spoke to much of their cast, costume designers, make-up people and Alex King, the film’s vehicle coordinator i.e. the man responsible for all the cool motorcycles in the movie.
