Crank 2: "Bigger" And "More Extreme"

Producer Tom Rosenberg has announced that Crank II will start shooting in April.

"I think it's going to be bigger than the first one," Rosenberg told Collider, later adding " It's actually similar and more extreme, so what propels Jason is even more extreme than the drug that he took."

Rosenberg confirms that the script is locked and loaded, and the budget has been upped to accommodate rising star Jason Statham and the Neveldine/Taylor directing team.

"The style will be the same, the shooting schedule is within 2-3 days of the other one."

A couple months back we were able to talk to Lakeshore Entertainment producer David Rubin about the upcoming sequel. You can read the details of that conversation here.
