Idris Elba In Talks For 'Ghost Rider 2'
Stringer Bell a.k.a. Idris Elba is in talks to join Nicolas Cage, Ciaran Hinds, and hottie Violante Placido in Ghost Rider 2. THR reports that Elba would play "an alcoholic warrior monk tasked with finding Ghost Rider." There are so many contradictions in that character description. Basically, Worst. Monk. Ever.
Johnny Whitworth is also looking to jump into the Neveldine/Taylor-directed flaming skull flick. The "CSI: Miami" star would be "a criminal who is recruited by the devil to find the boy and is later turned into a demonic creature." What's with all the finding going on in this movie? I wonder how Neveldine and Taylor will make that interesting. Oh right, shoot the whole thing like it's an acid trip. This can't not turn out excellent.
