Because it has to happen. What, you don't hear all the people screaming for it?

Nicolas Cage is known for not doing sequels, but that seems to be changing. National Treasure: Book of Secrets is the follow-up to the first hit Disney movie and he isn't stopping there.

Today he told Superhero Hype! that he would be interested in doing another Ghost Rider movie.

"All they have to do is call, and I would love to see that happen. That would be fun," Cage said.

Now why would he be so quick to jump on the sequel bandwagon now? Maybe it's the 228 million the first one made in the theater, or that the first National Treasure made 347 million at the box office. That would translate to a huge payday for him for the sequels. I know I would be making sequels for the rest of my career if it were me. National Treasure: Taft's Secret Golden Toilet.

I didn't mind the first one. But, I really don't like Ghost Rider, so I guess I didn't care that the whole story was fucked up. You could actually say I hate Ghost Rider.

And who can Ghost Rider fight that is cool? It's not like there is this wealth of great Ghost Rider villains.

Exactly. A hero is as good as his foe, which make Ghost Rider pretty shit in my eyes.

During an interview for his new action bonanza Bangkok Dangerous, Oscar-winner and perennial strange-on-screen-hairdo connoisseur Nicolas Cage let slip about a few of his upcoming comic book films.

First up, he discussed a sequel to last year's Columbia Pictures and Marvel release, Ghost Rider.

Cage: Yes, actually, had a nice meeting with the studio about 3-months ago, and we talked about going international with that character. Taking him into Europe, having him go on a motorcycle tour through Europe, and he's connected with the church, if you can believe that. So it sort of has elements to it that are very much in the zeitgeist, with "The Da Vinci Code" and things like that.

In fairness, the $230mil means a combination of domestic and international, which were both about $115mil a piece. For a superhero movie, it isn't a *HUGE* amount, but it was more successful than pretty much anyone expected. It ranks as the 25th most successful CBM of all time and has nowhere to go other than down.

On topic: If they were going to improve the film, keep Cage, Fonda and maybe Elliot for flashbacks, better action secnes and a decent villain. Anyone's an improvement on the original film's Blackhart for reasons stated above.
