Nicholas Cage, in LA to promote DRIVE ANGRY 3-D, told Fearnet.com that in GHOSTRIDER: SPIRIT OF VENEGANCE he’s playing somethin of a dual (or would that be triple) role.
“There’s an exorcism scene I just did where Johnny Blaze is being exorcized. And then I also play Ghost Rider, who’s the spirit of Zarathos, who’s a corrupted angel. So it’s like completely different entities.
The movie is not like anything I’ve done before. It’s completely original. I think it’s a really high adrenaline ride. And I think you’ll see things in it that are mysterious as well.”
The supernatural action-thriller DRIVE ANGRY 3-D opens today (sans advance critic previews).
Nicholas Cage will soon be winging his way back to Romania, where SPIRIT OF VENEGANCE is still in production under co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (CRANK).
When one thinks of angry acting, usually Nic Cage is at the top of the list. There are few movies of his where fists aren’t flying and words aren’t being shouted into the face of an unsuspecting person – THE WICKER MAN being the best example of this. So how appropriate is it that he is in a movie called DRIVE ANGRY? It was practically MADE for him!
The official plot summary is as follows:
DRIVE ANGRY stars Nicolas Cage as Milton, a hardened felon who has broken out of hell for one last chance at redemption. Intent on stopping a vicious cult who murdered his daughter, he has three days to stop them before they sacrifice her baby beneath a full moon.
He’s joined by Piper (Amber Heard) – a young, sexy waitress who liberates her ex-boyfriend’s cherry-red muscle car in order to help Milton. Now, the two of them are hot on the trail of the deadly leader of the cult, Jonah King (Billy Burke), who believes it is his destiny to use the baby to unleash hell on earth.
But the bloodthirsty cult is the least of Milton’s problems. The police are after him too. And worse, an enigmatic killer known only as “The Accountant” – who has been sent by the Devil to retrieve Milton and deliver him back to hell. With wicked cunning and hypnotic savagery, the Accountant will relentlessly pursue Milton at high speed across the country until his mission is accomplished.
Fueled by high octane and pure rage, Milton must use his anger to go beyond all human limits to avenge his daughter’s murder, before his last chance at redemption is revoked.
