Superhero Hype! has received four exclusive new pictures from the set of Columbia Pictures’ Ghost Rider, scheduled for a 2006 release date. The comic book adaptation, written and directed by Mark Steven Johnson (Daredevil), stars Nicolas Cage, Wes Bentley, Eva Mendes, Matt Long, Sam Elliott, Peter Fonda, and Donal Logue.
In order to save his dying father, young stunt cyclist Johnny Blaze (Cage) sells his soul to Mephistopheles (Fonda) and sadly parts from the pure-hearted Roxanne Simpson (Mendes), the love of his life. Years later, Johnny’s path crosses again with Roxanne, now a gogetting reporter, and also with Mephistopheles, who offers to release Johnny’s soul if Johnny becomes the fabled, fiery Ghost Rider, a supernatural agent of vengeance and justice. Mephistopheles charges Johnny with defeating the despicable Blackheart (Bentley), Mephistopheles’s nemesis and son, who plans to displace his father and create a new hell even more terrible than the old one.
The pictures were taken on the Lt Lonsdale Street set in Melbourne and can be viewed here!
