Next April, Jason Statham reprises his role of adrenaline junkie Chev Chelios in Crank 2: High Voltage, the sequel to the most ridiculously insane movie of 2006. While at Comic-Con to promote Death Race, Statham offered a glimpse into the sophisticated creative process employed by Crank 2 filmmakers Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor for the follow-up.
"They wrote part two in like a week -- I think it was a weekend, actually," recounted Statham, who was a tad hung over after celebrating his birthday the night before. "They locked themselves in a room and just put three bottles of tequila there and just drank and wrote this script."
"It's one of the most enjoyable films I've shot in the last decade," Statham added. "It is absolutely madder than you can imagine. It's nuts, like the first one times a hundred. It's just ridiculous." Crank 2: High Voltage opens April 17, 2009
