‘Ghost Rider’ Director Mark Steven Johnson Still Finding Work; Helming ‘Autobahn’

It’s not rare for a filmmaker to somehow find work even after failing to make a critically adored film. Mark Steven Johnson is that very filmmaker. Best known for helming films like Daredevil and of course, the masterpiece known as Ghost Rider, Johnson is the poster boy for directors making the film world a lot less interesting.
