Cage Plans Comic Book Hero Debut

NICOLAS CAGE is fast becoming the go-to guy for directors looking for comic book good and bad guys, after agreeing to have another look at an upcoming film about his childhood hero GHOST RIDER.

The movie star turned down roles as SPIDER-MAN villain GREEN GOBLIN and SUPERMAN in an upcoming project, but he just can't say no to Ghost Rider, even though the film has been kicking around Hollywood for eight years.

He says, "I'm just very curious about that. I'm still in talks about that particular movie. It's still not definite at this point but I'm interested. "It's really a matter of the vision of the movie and how it will be portrayed. There are talks about the script and things like that. It's true that I was involved in Ghost Rider over three years ago and I was trying to develop it with another filmmaker.

"These things are very sensitive. It's a bullseye and you really have to hit it, otherwise it may not work."

But Cage insists fans will see him as a comic book hero before too long - because he's always been a big fan of the genre.

He adds, "Comic books, for me as a young man, were one of the ways I learned how to read. I was always fascinated by the mythology of them."
