Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance star Ciaran Hinds has said that fans can expect a "mad" movie from directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.

The former Rome star, who portrays the Devil in Nicolas Cage's Marvel sequel, told Digital Spy that he was surprised to be offered a role in the blockbuster.

"It's a genre I don't know," Hinds said. "That was something I didn't think I would ever be involved in. I do Shakespeare! I wear breeches and do Jane Austen! And then this is just mad, so different.

"I don't know how it'll turn out - probably just this mad kind of film that certain people of a certain age will get into."

Asked about his interpretation of Satan, the Northern Irish actor explained: "Playing the Devil in human form - I didn't know what level to play it at. They just said, 'Give us your stuff', but it's not fire and brimstone."

Hinds also teased a scene with Cage which sees the Devil confront Johnny Blaze.

"I did get to meet Nic Cage, which was a thrill. A very nice, very professional man. Very good, very sharp," he commented. "We only had one scene, where he gave me a punch in the jaw and sent me miles away!"

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance will open in cinemas on February 17, 2012.
