Crank 2 Is Most Offensive Script Statham's Ever Read

Why is Jason Statham so angry in this new Crank 2: High Voltage set picture? Probably because an evil mobster cut out his heart and replaced it with a machine, and now he has to shock himself every few minutes. "High voltage is an understatement," he said about the movie. "They locked themselves in a room for three days with five bottles of tequila and wrote the most offensive, outrageous script I've ever read." Click through for full frontal Statham (well, with clothes on) from the set of the world's most offensive actioner. Some spoilers about the plot ahead.

Crank 2 is one of those ratshit insane movies that makes me proud to be alive. The plot follows Statham's character, Chev Chelios, who is going to die unless he does something to keep his heart pumping at an insane speed, which means grabbing onto exposed electrical wires and having wild sex with his lady friend Eve (Amy Smart). Even the mighty bad boy Statham is nervous about how far this movie goes. During the Death Race press junket he said:

Poor Amy Smart, that's my concern. There is a very indulgent sex scene on a race track. I don't want to give too much away.

But deep inside he knows this movie will be top-notch ridiculous action. He added:

They have all the capabilities of making it the crazy action movie that they wanted. It's like Crank 1 but times 1,000.
