Mark Steven Johnson, who wrote and directed the Daredevil movie, has signed to direct Ghost Rider for Columbia Pictures, with Nicolas Cage attached to star.

Gary Foster, who produced Daredevil and is producing Ghost Rider with Avi Arad and Crystal Sky's Steven Paul, told The Continuum that Johnson's involvement in Ghost Rider won't impact either the announced Elektra film or Daredevil sequel.

"Mark and I are producing Elektra with Avi for April/May '04," Foster told The Continuum on Wednesday. "Hence, it won't affect it at all.

"DD2 is still in the mix for MSJ after Ghost Rider."

Johnson is rewriting the script by Shane Salerno, and production of Ghost Rider should start either late this year or early next year.

Cage, who took his stage name from Marvel character Luke Cage, has been linked to several super-hero movies, including Superman and Constantine. He was originally attached to Ghost Rider when it was written by David Goyer, to directed by Stephen Norrington and set up at Miramax.

That version went into turnaround, and Columbia picked up the rights.
