Crank 2 script made Statham need tissues

When Total Film talked to Jason Statham about Crank 2: High Voltage, he couldn't be more excited. Hit the gallery to your right to see some reasons why you should be too.

“It’s from the fucking stratosphere," he said. "It’s so out there, it’s so wacky, it’s so unbelievable.”

Why's it so wacky? Well, High Voltage sees Statham's Chev Chelios' indestructible heart get pilfered and replaced with a blood-pumper that needs constant zaps of electricity to keep motoring. Cue some ridiculous buzzing and high-voltage stunts.

Despite the lunacy, Statham was impressed with High Voltage's writer/directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's approach.

“They write very, very quickly and they sent me the script and I was thumbing through it with a box of tissues just laughing and crying, going, ‘This is absolutely silly. When do we make it?’”
