Rumour Alert: Highlander to team up with Ghost Rider

Connor MacLeod of the clan MacLeod, Christopher Lambert, may be in the running to star alongside Nicolas Cage and his latest crazy haircut in the Ghost Rider sequel.

Dread Central reports the actor revealed on his Facebook page that he's in talks to star with Cage in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. The second Marvel Comics adaptation to feature the ghastly motorcycle rider also stars Ciaran Hinds, Violante Placido, Idris Elba and Johnny Whitworth.

Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (writer/directors of Gamer, Crank) are in pre-production on the project, which is due in theatres Feb. 17, 2012.

I didn't care for the first Ghost Rider much and Shawn isn't shy about his hate for Cage. But Neveldine and Taylor have done some wild stuff and the chance to see Lambert on screen again creates some geek excitement for us in The Basement. Highlander was one of my favourites growing up.
