I tried to hope. I really did. And if I ever needed proof that there is no God, this is it. The director, well, as nythien put it, "turns everything he touches into huge piles of steaming elephant shit". The writer has a history with Full Moon Pictures (and as big a Full moon Fanatic as I am, they aren't well-written. Period.) as well as having written the hideous sequel to The Crow. And Nick Cage is playing John Blaze. Nick Cage, who doesn't look even a tad like John Blaze.
Not to mention that they are apparently going to ignore the Dan Ketch Ghost Rider era, and go back to do the John Blaze days. Which means lots less character development, and lots more angry explosions/guns/flames...pretty typical Hollywood, actually. Screw the good story, let's just make it flashy. And why the fuck is Blackheart in it at ALL?!? He wasn't around in the John Blaze era, that wasn't until much later in the Dan Ketch time...and how exactly do they plan to make Wes fuckin' Bently into the Prince of Hell? Easy, I'm quite sure he won't look anything like Blackheart, at all. now, Sam Elliott playing Caretaker, I can see that...except for the fact that caretaker wasn't around in the John Blaze era, either (that was also the Dan Ketch days).
Best I can figure, they're going to take the backstory of Blaze, and add in a bunch of Ketch stuff, to make it worth telling. Standard Hollywood craperoo. I'm hurt, hurt in a deep way. I don't expect you to understand.
