Sony To Use 9-Year-Old David Goyer Script For ‘Ghost Rider 2’

Ghost Rider

Collider was able to talk to producer David Goyer recently, and he shared a fun little fact about the sequel that very few are looking forward to seeing: Ghost Rider 2. Goyer is best known as a writer who penned all three Blade movies and both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight (co-writer). He’s also done some directing, like his horror movie The Unborn; as well as a producer, bringing us the latest TV hit, Flash Forward.

The catch here is that when Goyer wrote the script, he wrote it in the same light as Blade: dark and violent with a hard R-rating. Sony, of course, wants nothing to do with that, so their plan is to clean it up and work it around to get the same PG-13 the first movie had.

It sounds as though the reason that they want to use this pre-existing script is that it simply makes the job easier to progress, though Goyer’s script could just as well be too good to pass up. Unfortunately, this sounds a lot more like the former, and that does not bode well for the movie. If they’re just hoping to find a story, get it made, and get it released as fast as humanly possible, then we’re already dark and lonely world of low expectations.

Being someone who tends to rant when the R versus PG-13 discussion comes up, this is an example of where it doesn’t matter much. The first movie was horrible, but it would be a little too strange to change the rating of the sequel. The comic was violent and more of a Blade approach might be what it takes to actually save this franchise, but we all know that’s not going to happen.
