Crank 3

Mark Neveldine offers an update on the film:

We’re definitely gonna do solo films. But we have an approved treatment for Crank 3 and we’re super-excited about it. I know we’ve talked about it in the past, but we had lunch with Jason [Statham], we had lunch with Lakeshore. Everybody wants to do it, it’s just now about all the stars aligning. Brian and I have a couple things that we’d really like to do as a team, and there are projects that really make sense that way. But also everybody thinks we’re just one person. We’re actually two guys with families and kids now, and we have things that we want to do solo and we’re very supportive of each other doing that. But we want to do Crank 3.
