Vulture is reporting that Columbia Pictures is finding themselves in a little bit of a bind when it comes to filming the sequel to their Ghost Rider movie. You see in order for Columbia to prevent the rights for doing another Ghost Rider movie from revering back to Marvel Entertainment, they have start production on a new movie no later than November 14, 2010, and even though Nicholas Cage has defiantly said he wants to be on board, there are questions as to whether or not the actor's schedule will permit him from doing so. According to Vulture, Columbia is trying to get an extension from Marvel on the production date, but if they fail to do so then they may need to look elsewhere for and new lead actor to play the part of the Spirit of Vengeance.
Vulture also is reporting that they hear that FlashForward writers Scott Gimple and Seth Hoffman, overseen by their show's creator (and Batman Begins scribe), David S. Goyer, have just turned in a draft of a GR2 script, which Columbia will bring to a still-evolving list of potential directors.
