It's true. Jason Statham is confirmed to reprise his role in the upcoming sequel Crank 2: High Voltage. According to Variety, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor will both be back to write and direct the feature.

They are also confirmed to shoot Gerard Butler's futuristic thriller Game, which will be shot back to back with Crank 2. Michael C. Hall will co-star in that film.

The story of Crank 2 has Chev Chelios facing off with a Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-powered heart that needs regular jolts of electricity to keep working.

Shooting is scheduled to begin November 6th, 2007.
