The latest on the upcoming sequel
The studio, according to Vulture, is asking for a deadline extension on the sequel. You see, they need to get it rolling by this November or the rights got back to Marvel/Disney. The rub: Ghost Rider star Nicholas Cage might not be available between now and then.
So Sony may have to re-cast. Scott Gimple and Seth Hoffman turned in a draft of the script and a director is being sought. Whether Cage can commit or not is the question, furthermore, will the studio take a risk on the Ghost Rider without their star?
