'Ghost Rider' directors say third film is already being developed

Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance isn't released in the UK until Friday (February 17), but its directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have said that they are already planning a sequel.

The film tells the story of Johnny Blaze, a stunt motorcyclist who sells his soul to the Devil and transforms into himself into a vigilante Ghost Rider, and stars Nicolas Cage. Its new outing is the second from the Ghost Rider franchise and, according to Indiewire, Neveldine and Taylor are already working on a third film for the series.

Asked about the possibility of a third Ghost Rider film, the pair said: "There's been talk about a sequel. I know Nicolas Cage wants to do it; he's very pumped about it. We'll just have to see how well this does."

Neveldine and Taylor have also promised that there will be a third installment of their other movie franchise Crank and that it will be shot in 3D.

They said of the chances of a third Crank film: "It's going to happen, it's going to be written, and it will be 3D. Crank is destined to be a trilogy. And then maybe we'll go for the prequels the way Star Wars did."
