Crank 2: High Voltage Details

“Crank 2: High Voltage” has officially been greenlit at Lionsgate and Lakeshore Entertainment reports the trades.

Writer-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor are back, as is Jason Statham who will reprise his role of hitman Chev Chelios in “Crank 2.” The studio has also picked up Neveldine and Taylor’s next project – the cyber thriller “Game”.

In the “Crank” sequel, Chev faces a Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-powered artificial ticker that requires regular jolts of electricity to keep working. A chase begins through Los Angeles.
