Crank sequel opening revealed?
Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have been talking about Crank 2, the sequel to Crank (Filmstalker review), a great fun action film, and they revealed a little of just how they are going to get the sequel to work.
First up, Jason Statham is appearing in the sequel, and for those of you who haven't seen the first film I would suggest looking away before a reveal.
Crank sees Jason Statham's character injected with a fatal poison that means if he doesn't keep his adrenaline levels high his heart will stop. However he doesn't know who or why he's been poisoned so he sets on a path to find the answers all the while engaging in more adrenaline thumping activities to keep himself going. It is a lot of fun, fantastically filmed, and has some superb stunts and set-ups in it.
However, and here's the spoiler, at the end he's falling out of a helicopter plummeting towards Earth with seemingly no way out. Now through Latino Review we hear a little of what the sequel has planned.
“Taylor said that the last shot of the first film would be the first shot of the second film.”
What? That hasn't revealed anything, it's just set-up even more questions! How is he possibly going to survive the fall and begin again? I am now really confused and I'm desperate to see what they have in store, and how they can possibly bring the character back from the brink of the closing scenes of Crank. Any ideas?
