In another win for Australia’s talented VFX industry, Iloura recently announced it had been appointed as one of the VFX studios on Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.
Iloura’s Executive Producer, Simon Rosenthal, said that this project would see the studio’s continued growth in capacity as more artists join the studio to complete the 500 plus shots on the film as well as continue work on The Killer Elite and other projects.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance presents Iloura with another tremendous opportunity to work on a complex, Hollywood CG project. Being appointed by one of the studios is an acknowledgement of Iloura’s growing reputation in delivering high quality visual effects, says Rosenthal.
This project comes on the back of Iloura’s Emmy Nominated work on HBO’s The Pacific and recent feature film projects Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark with Guillermo Del Toro as well as 3D feature film Sanctum which was executive produced by James Cameron.
Nicolas Cage returns as Johnny Blaze in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. In the successor to the worldwide hit Ghost Rider, Johnny is still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciarán Hinds). At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy and possibly rid himself of his curse forever. Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor direct from a screenplay by Scott M. Gimple & Seth Hoffman and Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor, and a story by David S. Goyer, based on the Marvel Comic. Steven Paul, Ashok Amritraj, Michael De Luca and Ari Arad are the producers. The executive producers are E. Bennett Walsh, David S.
