Casting news happens more often than unknown bands releasing performance-based music videos, but anything that concerns Nicolas Cage is grounds for a story in our books.

After two less than crowd-pleasing efforts, Nicolas Cage has gone on record saying he does not plan to reprise his role in Ghost Rider if a third feature is developed. Speaking with Collider about his upcoming animated feature The Croods, Cage said:

“It’s possible, but it won’t be with me. I’ve said what I have to say. I don’t want to say never… anything’s possible. But I doubt, highly, that I would be in a third installment of that”

There were rumors last year that a third round of Ghost Rider CGI madness would be coming down the Hollywood pipeline, but the lukewarm reception for the film’s sequel may have squashed that possibility. We will keep you updated if anything changes moving forward.

If you feel bad for Cage, don’t. The 49-year-old actor currently has 6 films scheduled for release between now and 2014, so we have a feeling he’ll be just fine.
