Jason Statham has made a bunch of movies in his career but few can rival the sheer fun of CRANK. Both films are off the wall crazy and the closest thing to an adrenaline rush you can get from a motion picture. With participation in multiple franchises, the CRANK series is one that the actor would be happy to revisit.

There has been talk of a follow-up to CRANK: HIGH VOLTAGE for years but Entertainment Weekly got this update from Statham as they discussed his role in FURIOUS 7.

We’ve been talking for years about Crank 3. The first Crank, for me, was such a great experience. It’s a wacky few weeks that you have with such talented directors [Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor]. There’s no rules when you’re doing the Crank movies. We just keep going: “How are we going to get this off the ground?” They have a loose idea. They haven’t written the script.

Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have not directed a film since 2012's GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE but Neveldine's solo effort THE VATICAN TAPES is slated to premiere this year. Their talents are greatly suited to the CRANK films and even if it doesn't set the box office ablaze it is assured to turn a profit.

Here's hoping we get to see Statham return as Chev Chelios and maybe Amy Smart would be willing to strip one more time for us.

R Rated Looney Toons.....

When I walked out of Crank 2, I was giggling...I couldn't believe the audacity of Neveldine/Taylor and their willingness to ' go there' ...which meant anywhere they wanted . Like Statham said in the outtakes, rolling around in a hospital gown at the racetrack...' Its so bloody hard to keep a straight face'!.... are these films artistic classics? nope. Will they change the world? Nope. Will you walk out after 90 mins or so giggling like an idiot because you've just seen something that's

I'm laughing to myself now at the scene towards the end of Crank 2 where Chev has just bit into the electrical transformer, goes nuts, then while he's on fire flips the bird at the audience....Bring On Crank 3!

This guy makes a ton of movies, and I keep watching because when he whips ass, he is second only to Bruce Lee! He's a great action guy, and he has charisma, even when he playing the brooding type. Keep'm coming I say!

Since Chev got all burned up in Crank 2, it should be that he gets a synthetic skin that covers his body, but it's permanently trying to harden stiff and suffocate him. If he keeps moving it stays loose, so Chev is forced to keep running, jumping, screwing Amy Smart, etc until he can exact his full revenge. Then he hardens with a smile on his face and his middle finger out and dies. Fade out.
