$60 million is not to be sneezed at.
Its not 60 million profit, though. Remember, the studio only gets about half the gross. Its probably more like a 10-20 million profit. Which is small, but still enough that I think Sony will go for a third movie, as long as they have the time and resources. They won't choose to do Ghost Rider 3 instead of doing a 50M dollar rom-com with good expectations, but if they have a free filming slot, they'll aim for the Nick Cage fanbase.
