Saturday at Comic-Con International in San Diego, during a press conference with actor Nicolas Cage concerning the upcoming "Ghost Rider" film, he said he's like to do more comic-related films and that he's taking matters into his own hands in the short term: the long-time comics fan will be working on a comic of his own with his son.

"Just the other day, yesterday in fact, my son Weston and I had a meeting with Virgin Comics -- and I said I wouldn't announce, but I am going to announce it -- Weston has developed a character and they agreed to do five issues of it," said Cage. "So, we'll see how that works out.

"I promised I wouldn't say too much, but it is a Cage and Cage comic book at Richard Branson's company and Gotham Chopra, Deepak's son, is involved."

CBR News spoke with Gotham Chopra at the Virgin Comics booth Saturday afternoon at Comic-Con, who said when Cage asked if he could say anything about the comic, Gotham replied, "You're Nicolas Cage, you can do anything you want!"

Gotham could provide no further details at press time as this deal just went down, not even the name, which still needs to go through legal clearance.
