Cinematical was recently given the opportunity to chat with Nicolas Cage while he was busy promoting his upcoming film 'Season of the Witch,' and while the bulk of our interview will be saved until closer toward the film's release this coming January 7th, we wanted to share a portion of it with you today.

After chatting about, among many things, what kind of genre the film -- which stars Cage as a knight tasked with escorting to a monastery a woman who is thought to have been a witch that caused the bubonic plague -- is and why exactly it's had a rocky road to release, we had a few moments to talk about the actor's career, how people perceive him (he seems to have a great sense of humor about videos like Nicolas Cage Losing His Sh*t) and just how crazy 'Ghost Rider 2' is going to be.

In particular, when that last topic was brought up, his voice took on the kind of tone a kid gets when they've just been given a new toy they can't wait to show off. Between his noticeable excitement and his description of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who are directing the film this time around, I think it's safe to say that 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance' is going to be a huge, most likely insane (in the best of ways) departure from the first film.
