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.
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.
