Unlikely Sequel Report: "Crank 2" and The Return of "Maverick"

by | May 2, 2007 | Comments

It’s not a big surprise when we share the news of a "Spider-Man 3" or "Saw 4," but recently we’ve been hearing about a few possible follow-ups that we didn’t see coming. Namely, the Jason Statham action flick "Crank" and the Mel Gibson comedy/western "Maverick."

If you saw the "Crank" flick, then you’re probably wondering how writer/directors Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine are going to pull a sequel off, but they’re not spilling any beans just yet. Here’s what they had to say: "There will be a sequel to Crank yes. Prepare to Crank again. And you know the "is it a sequel or prequel" question… IT’S A SEQUEL. We’re not selling out and going prequel. We are picking up where the last movie left off."

And if that’s not curious enough, it looks like Mel Gibson wants to get back in front of the cameras and make a sequel. Nope, not to "Mad Max" or "Lethal Weapon." He says those series have more than run their course by now. Nope, his new plan is to partner up with James Garner again and give the world a "Maverick 2."

From Mr. Gibson: "There’s talk of doing another Maverick. Garner and I have been looking at that for a while. It’d be fun to play that character again … It won’t be happening immediately, but I dare say, it’ll happen."

We shall see.
