Hinds, Placido Join “Ghost Rider” Sequel

Ciaran Hinds (“Rome,” “The Sum of all Fears”) is in negotiations to join the upcoming sequel “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” for Sony Pictures reports Heat Vision.

Nicolas Cage will reprise his role as Johnny Blaze, a stunt motorcyclist who makes a deal with the devil and finds himself transforming into a flaming-skulled man driving a motorcycle from hell.

In this entry, Blaze is hiding out in remote Eastern Europe and struggling to repress his curse. Blaze is recruited by a sect to take on The Devil (Hinds), who wants to take over his mortal son’s body on the boy’s birthday.

Italian actress-singer Violante Placido is also in talks to join the cast as the boy’s mother. Avi Arad, Ari Arad, Michael De Luca and Steven Paul are producing while shooting kicks off in late November in Romania and Turkey.
