Hey folks, Harry here... In a follow-up with Stephen Norrington, I managed to get some of the basic questions answered about GHOST RIDER. And personally I like what I hear here. Taking GHOST RIDER into a bit of a Manga world look is possibly very cool, especially with Wrightson handling the conception chores... And as for the answer to the last question... YES! That was the correct answer. I'm pleased, now to get my grubby hands on that script.... plotting.... hmmmmm...
Are you going to be able to start a new feature before the (alleged) strike?
Well, we've started Ghost Rider, but I don't think we'll be shooting before
I also got a letter the other day from someone that claimed to have spoken
with Wrightson about working on Ghost Rider, and he said something along the
lines of You saying to throw out all that design look from the comics....
Care to comment on the direction you are headed in.
Actually, I asked Bernie to go much more extreme than the comic, bigger, more
demonic, more "manga" and to include the clothes and the bike in the
transformation. But the flames, and the skullish thing are definitely still at
the heart of it all.
And then the question that everybody seems to be curious about is....
Which Ghost Rider are you going to place in the film and which origin are
contemplating giving him?
It's Johnny Blaze, but his origin's very different, more thematic, more realistic than the comic. Don't want to say any more than that.
