Crank 2 talk

Even though it seemed like he burned through all possible repositories of adrenalin in CRANK, Jason Statham's hitman is coming back for a second round in a sequel to that flick.

How will this loopy mayhem unfold? Collider chatted with prodco Lakeshore's honcho Tom Rosenberg, who gave a hint of what Chev Chelios will be in for in CRANK 2: "Its actually similar and more extreme, so what propels Jason is even more extreme than the drug that he took." (Rumor has it, he's got some kind of mechanical heart this time around. I'd call that a spoiler, but how the hell else could you imagine he'd return?)

Filmmakers Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine are finishing up work on their cyber-action flick GAME with Gerard Butler and then immediately causing more grievous bodily damage to Statham and half of Los Angeles. Will that be te extent of what this dude can endure? Don't bet on it, because according to Rosenberg there might be even more: "Well see it leaves off where thats possible. If the public embraces itI think its going to be bigger than the first one."
Extra Tidbit: Neveldine and Taylor are literally co-directors, operating two simultaneous cameras for close and wide coverage.

I always figured, after that final fall, that he'd just pick himself back up again or something.

A mechanical heart is just so...out there. Since Chelios is sorta a super-human anyway, what's he need a mechanical heart for?

What I wanna know is, who's the bad guy this time? Dr. Miles maybe? Or the Chinese mafia?

Anyway, as long as they stay true to the wacked-out nature of the first film, I'm game.

MAYBE

If they are going to rebuild him then they might as well give him hair. I would be pissed off as hell if some crazy scientist had the money and technology to bring me back from the dead but left me bald. That would suck!

It's all clear.

The first Crank was so full of logic that it makes sense that we're all wondering how the "Chev" can come back. C'mon, INSERT COIN, BABY!!!

You'd be assuming that the REST of him wasn't mechanical either, right? :)

I can see it now, STATHAM is the next TERMINATOR! But this guy's a dude who likes to kill bad guys for fun, do drugs and nail chicks in Chinatown...

I'd love a Crank 2, but i think people fail to realize, although - yes holywood.. the guy fell from thousands of feet in the air, onto a moving car bounced off and splattered on the pavement...

How does getting a mechanical heart fix all that?. hahahah
