Not long ago, we discussed Jason Statham‘s plans to reprise his role as hitman Chev Chelios in a sequel to Crank. Now, thanks to Variety, we know how the filmmakers intend to pull it off.

According to a report published yesterday, Crank 2: High Voltage is an official go, and for those of you who questioned where Chelios’ story could possibly go after the first movie, here’s a synopsis for the sequel that we totally swear we took directly from Variety:

In “Crank 2,” Chelios faces a Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-powered ticker that requires regular jolts of electricity to keep working.

Variety notes that Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the writers/directors responsible for the Crank films, will follow up the sequel with Game, a “futuristic thriller” starring Gerard Butler and Michael C. Hall. No battery-powered hearts in this one, unfortunately:

“Game” is a high-concept thriller set in a dystopian future. Amber Valletta, Logan Lerman, Alison Lohman, John Leguizamo, Johnny Whitworth, Zoe Bell and Kyra Sedgwick round out the cast. Principal photography begins Nov. 5 in Albuquerque, N.M.
