According to The Hollywood Reporter, Matt Long, who stars as Jack in the WB Network's "Jack & Bobby", is in negotiations to play a younger version of the title character played by Nicolas Cage in Columbia Pictures' Ghost Rider, an adaptation of the Marvel Comics title.
The movie stars Cage as a former motorcycle stuntman named Johnny Blaze who agrees to let his body become host to a vengeful spirit -- becoming a bike-riding demon in the process -- to secure the safety of his true love, to be played by Eva Mendes.
Long would play a young Johnny, who makes the deal with the devil.
Also starring are Wes Bentley and Sam Elliott. Mark Steven Johnson is directing and wrote the latest draft of the script. Shane Salerno wrote the original draft.
