‘Robert’ has a few new updates on writer/director Mark Steven Johnson’s Ghost Rider which is about to get underway in the new year.
Touring Company Wayward Bus have signed a deal to provide a groovy looking bus for Nic Cage’s Ghost Rider:
DECEMBER NEWS 2004
NICHOLAS CAGE TO PLAY JOHNNY BLAZE, THE GHOST RIDER… ROAMING ON A WAYWARD BUS!
Our restored classic 1960s GM coach has landed a major role in upcoming blockbuster ‘Ghost Rider’, to be filmed early 2005 in Melbourne and Broken Hill. Nicholas Cage plays Johnny Blaze, touring the country fairgrounds as a dare-devil motorcycle stunt-rider – travelling and living in our flame painted all-American 10-ton-plus V8 people mover. When not in ‘civvies’, Blaze turns into the comic book black-leather-clad bony-faced super-hero. Along the way, he sells his soul to the devil for love of a girl but somehow still ends up doing mostly good deeds.
If I’m not mistaken, this is the bus they’re referring to.
Clayton Watson is positive about landing a role in the film. See here for the article.
And according to this listing, shooting is set to start January 31 and run through June.
