Lionsgate has released a new production photo from Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor directed “Crank 2: High Voltage.”
The indestructible hopped-up hitman Chev Chelios, played to the hilt once again by Jason Statham, returns in “Crank 2: High Voltage”, picking up where the first film left off — except this time, Chelios is chasing a Chinese gangster who hijacked his heart and substituted it with a mechanical one that needs to be jolted with an electric charge to stay pumping.
The maverick directing/writing team of Neveldine and Taylor returns to inject more caffeinated craziness into burgeoning action series, with Amy Smart and Dwight Yoakam set to reprise their roles from the original. Efren Ramirez, Bai Ling, Clifton Collins Jr., and Corey Haim round out the cast.
“Crank 2: High Voltage” opens April 17th, 2009.
