Though it takes place eight years after the first movie, the Ghost Rider sequel is not a reboot and will star star Nicholas Cage.
David Goyer, screenwriter of the new Ghost Rider film, has already confirmed that the sequel to the film will have a toned down level of violence for a PG-13 rating. In addition, many have speculated that the franchise, after only one movie, would require a reboot, and perhaps a new star. According to MTV News, however, that will not be the case:
"It’s not exactly a reboot," said Goyer, who’s currently hard at work on his "FlashForward" television series. "I hate to say it’s more realistic, because he’s got a flaming skull for a head, but it’s a bit more stripped down and darker. It’s definitely changing tone. What ‘Casino Royale’ was to the Bond movies, hopefully this will be to ‘Ghost Rider.’"
"This story picks up eight years after the first film," said Goyer.
"You don’t have to have seen the first film. It doesn’t contradict
anything that happened in the first film, but we’re pretending that our
audience hasn’t seen the first film. It’s as if you took that same
character where things ended in the first film and then picked it up
eight years later—he’s just in a much darker, existential place."
The script for the movie is available on the internet if you look for it.
