Statham : Crank 3 likely won’t happen

Sounds like the “Crank” franchise has got the Yank.

Speaking to Collider at the press day for his new film “The Mechanic”, star Jason Statham suggested the box-office failure of “Crank 2 : High-Voltage” has killed all hopes of a third film.

“It’s a shame the last one didn’t do that well. I think the first one had a little bit more success and usually if you do a sequel, it usually has to in some ways take a little bit more money than the first one.”

The actor said he’s nothing planned for the immediate future. “The most I’ve had is a couple of movies in front of me, but now I’m just waiting for Stallone’s next film, The Expendables 2”.
