Another Crank??

Last year's exquisite action surprise CRANK was so outrageously over-the-top that it nearly broke atmosphere and went hurtling into the cosmos. How could filmmakers Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor possibly exceed their debut's lunatic fusion of overkill?

Apparently they're gonna try anyway, as Variety says they "are in the early stages of a sequel" to the crazy Statham flick. That's literally the only information given about this potential follow-up (also at Lakeshore, who handled the original), so feel free to speculate about how another film could be approached. Will Statham's hyped-up hitman somehow return, despite the gratuitous abuse inflicted upon his person the first time? Or will the writing-directing duo present a brand new character forced to endure a series of adrenaline-fueled survival tactics?

Either way, consider my ticket already bought...
Extra Tidbit: The Directors Guild of America only allows one credited director per film, although this is waived for certain circumstances. Robert Rodriguez left the DGA after disputing this rule for SIN CITY, which he insisted on sharing credit with creator Frank Miller.
