Amy Smart, Dwight Yoakam and Efren Ramirez will reprise their roles in the Jason Statham action sequel Crank: High Voltage, with Bai Ling joining the cast as a hooker.
The Lionsgate/Lakeshore Entertainment production revolves around the further adventures of hard-charging hit man Chev Chelios (Statham), his girlfriend (Smart), his concerned doctor (Yoakam) and the cross-dresser who loves him (Ramirez).
Bai Ling (Love Ranch) plays Rai, a call girl obsessively pursuing Chelios for romantic reasons. She teams up with him to hunt down the Chinese mobster who has stolen his heart, literally.
Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who directed the 2006 original, return to helm Crank: High Voltage, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
