This time we've got an actual photo of Jason Statham, not some incredibly creepy giant rubber heads (see those here). Crank 2: High Voltage is set to hit theaters next April, but the buzz has already begun. I was able to see an early trailer for this at Comic-Con and it looked insane, in a very good way. Imagine the first Crank ramped up with twice the energy and excitement (and scenes of Statham zapping himself with everything from defibrillators to electrical boxes) and you might begin to comprehend how crazy Crank 2 looked. This photo doesn't show too much, but I hope that it at least gets you excited for the return of Chev Chelios next year. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
In this high-octane sequel, hitman Chev Chelios launches himself on an electrifying chase through Los Angeles in pursuit of the Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart.
Crank 2: High Voltage is both written and directed by mastermind filmmakers Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the two crazy guys behind Crank and the upcoming Game and Jonah Hex as well. The film was produced by Lakeshore Entertainment and is being distributed by Lionsgate. Crank 2: High Voltage arrives in theaters everywhere on April 17th, 2009 next year. Get ready for a shock!
