If you've come to terms with the fact that there will actually be another 'Ghost Rider' movie and you think you can ignore the monstrosity that was the 2007 feature, then you'll want to catch up on the casting news we learned about. Idris Elba and Johnny Whitworth are currently in negotiations to join Nic Cage and friends in 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance,' which is set to release February 2012.

Cage is back as Johnny Blaze aka the demonic vigilante Ghost Rider, who has sold his soul to the devil in order to cure his father's cancer. It was recently announced that Irish actor Ciaran Hinds was cast as the big bad who Blaze is recruited by a sect to battle before he can possess his mortal son's body. Elba -- known for playing the business-savvy drug kingpin on HBO's 'The Wire' -- is eyeing up the role of "an alcoholic warrior monk" who tries to track down Ghost Rider. Apparently the anti-hero has been hiding out in remote Eastern Europe trying to repress his curse. Meanwhile, Whitworth -- who worked with directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor on 2009's 'Gamer' -- will possibly tackle the role of a criminal who tries to find the boy in question and is later transformed into a demon.
