Rama’s Screen attended the press junket for Mark Neveldine’s new film “The Vatican Tapes,” who wrote and directed “Crank” and “Crank: High Voltage” together with Brian Taylor. When asked about “Crank 3” and whether Jason Statham and Amy Smart would return to reprise their roles, he said:
“Brian [Taylor] and I, we wanted to kinda go off and do a couple of things on our own, ya know, of course we’re working on “Crank 3” and we’re going to hopefully do that next year.”
“For “Crank 3” that’s the plan right now. No one’s sealed but the idea is that we wanted to bring the original band back together and finish the trilogy.”
Statham is still very much interested in doing another “Crank” film, which he confirmed in several recent interviews. Neveldine hasn’t let go of the idea either, so let’s hope they will finally make it happen in 2016.
