Nicholas Cage Discusses Need for R-Rated ‘Ghost Rider’ Movie

Nicholas Cage believes that the time is right for an R-Rated ‘Ghost Rider’ movie, believing that if 2007’s ‘Ghost Rider’ and 2011’s ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengence’ were R-rated, then they would have had much more success.

“Had Ghost Rider been made in R-rated format, the way they had the guts to do with Deadpool, and they did it again today, I’m fairly certain it would be enormously successful,” Cage said, according to Yahoo! Entertainment.

“Having said that, I still think the movies were a hit. People don’t look at the subsidiary outlets, like DVD and streaming and whatnot. When you look at what Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor did [on ‘Spirit of Vengeance’] for $50 million, and they got a $250 million return, you begin to see the genius of the sequel.”

“The problem is, it’s very hard to take a family of children to a movie — and they made it a PG-13 movie — about a superhero who, oh, by the way, also happens to have sold his soul to Satan. [Not the] most commercial concept or vehicle. But it certainly is the most interesting, and the most thought-provoking. I think if you look back on the movies today, they age well.”

“GHOST RIDER was designed to be a scary superhero with an R-rating and edge and they just didn’t have it worked out back then.”
