Hunky action hero Jason Statham, actress Amy Smart, Efren Ramirez and country crooner Dwight Yoakam are reprising their roles in the action drama Crank 2: High Voltage, the sequel to 2006's Crank. Bai Ling, who makes more Hollywood headlines for her frequent appearance on tabloid "Worst Dressed Lists" than for her acting assigments, has signed on to star as a hooker.
Statham is of course returning to the lead role of hitman Chev Chelios, who will pursued by Ling's character, Rai. That probably won't sit well with Smart, who portrays Chelios's girlfriend. For those keeping score at home, Yoakam plays the role of Chelios's doctor.
The film will be distributed through Lionsgate/Lakeshore Entertainment and directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who shared directorial duties on the original, will also return as co-directors for the second installment. It's time to get addicted to some Crank!
