Exclusive: Jason Statham on Crank 3 and Fast & Furious 8

27 May 2015 11:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Statham sounds like he's on board for the next Fast & Furious film. Plus, plans are ongoing to get Crank 3 made...

So, yesterday, we might just have been in the same room as the mighty Statham himself, and had the chance to question him about one or two of his upcoming projects. He was in town to talk about Paul Feig's incoming comedy Spy, and we'll have the full interview for you next week. But here's what he told us about two upcoming sequels, Crank 3 and Fast & Furious 8.

There's still not much in the way of obvious progress on Crank 3 though, sadly. However, The Statham told us that "Crank 3 is something I've always wanted to do". Promisingly, he added that "The directors want to do it, we're trying to figure things out".

Far more definite is his involvement in Fast & Furious 8. His future filming schedule is set »

Simon Pegg interview: Man Up, Tintin 2, rom coms, directing

27 May 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Pegg chats to us about rom coms, Man Up, writing, Tintin 2, visiting Andy Serkis on The Jungle Book set, directing, and more...

Before he heads off to make the next Star Trek film, Simon Pegg is back in UK cinemas this weekend for the really rather good romantic comedy, Man Up. He co-stars with Lake Bell in the movie, and ahead of its release, he spared us some time to chat about the film, and what he's up to next...

It's an interesting sign of the times that BBC Films, which started out making movies that couldn't be made really, back with Truly Madly Deeply....

Another South Bank movie!

True. Back then, BBC Films was making niche films that were struggling to get made anywhere else. And here, with Man Up, a rom com seems to have become one of those niche films.

Absolutely, yeah. You make a very good point. »

Jason Statham: our last action hero (50 million Facebook fans can't be wrong)

20 May 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Rock is too big, Sly Stallone is too old and Steven Seagal looks too much like a sea lion. When you need a man who can chop off a gunman’s hand and use it to shoot someone else in the face, there’s only one person who fits the bill

In Homefront, Jason Statham is a tough, uncompromising DEA agent. In Crank, Jason Statham is a tough, uncompromising hit man. In Hummingbird, Jason Statham is a tough, uncompromising homeless man. In In the Name of the King, Jason Statham is a tough, uncompromising farmer.

Jason Statham is nothing if not consistent. Consistent and tough and uncompromising. But that consistency has won him legions of fans – almost 50 million on Facebook alone. You know what you’re getting with a Jason Statham film. He will beat people up. He will crash cars. He will do an unconvincing American accent. And »

One-Sheet/Trailer Debut For Demonic Possession Film, The Vatican Tapes

15 May 2015 1:28 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Having made his mark as one part of the Neveldine/Taylor filmmaking duo (co-directors of Crank, Gamer and Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance), Mark Neveldine’s first solo effort, the Michael Peña-led good vs. evil film The Vatican Tapes, is set to possess horror audiences when it hits theaters this July 24th, via Pantelion Films. The official one sheet and trailer for the demonic horror film has made its way online, and judging from the trailer, it looks like Neveldine is applying the same breakneck speed, frantic pacing that he and Taylor have become quite well known for executing in their films. I’m curious to see how he does as a solo director, and this could very well be quite the entertaining possession flick.

The Vatican Tapes follows the ultimate battle between good and evil – God versus Satan. Angela Holmes (Olivia Taylor Dudley) is an ordinary 27-year-old until »

Trailer for Mark Neveldine's The Vatican Tapes!

12 May 2015 9:54 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Mark Neveldine, half of the Neveldine/Taylor combo that brought us Crank and Gamer, helms this new horror film about exorcisms and the secret role of the Vatican.

Synopsis:

The Vatican Tapes follows the ultimate battle between good and evil - God versus Satan. Angela Holmes (Olivia Taylor Dudley) is an ordinary 27-year-old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death.

Holmes is examined and possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagin [Continued ...] »

Why Paul Feig Is 'Dead Serious' About 'Spy' (Plus, an Exclusive Sneak Peek)

7 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

For some reason, 2015 is the year of the spy spoof.

Earlier this year we got "Kingsman: The Secret Service," which turned out to be something of a surprise hit (especially given its brand new IP and R-rating) and on June 5th comes "Spy," the latest collaboration between director Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy (this is their third, after the hugely successful "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat").

"Spy" turns the espionage thriller on its head; instead of a slick male agent, we get McCarthy's bumbling office drone who's recruited after a Bond-ish spy (Jude Law) gets killed in the field. It could be dopey and crass, but Feig treats the material seriously and gets genuinely inspired performances out of a varied cast that includes Rose Byrne and, surprisingly enough, Jason Statham.

"Spy" premiered at this year's South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, where we sat down with Feig to discuss »

Jason Statham Gets Gnarly In New Spy Clip

24 April 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Jason Statham has destroyed more villainous goons than we’ve had hot (and cold) dinners - and we're greedy buggers. He’s back repeating the trick in Paul Feig/Melissa McCarthy espionage action-comedy, Spy. This time, however, he’s playing things for laughs. A new clip from the film showcases his rather insecure agent and comes off like Alan Partridge channelling Daniel Craig's 007. Job done.brightcove.createExperiences();“This arm has been ripped off completely and reattached with this fucking arm,” he barks, desperately asserting his badass credentials in a way that would raise at least one Chev Chelios eyebrow.Statham, who plays a temper-fuelled spy called Rick Ford, has been on Feig’s wishlist since Lock, Stock and more specifically, those two Crank movies. “When people read the Statham role they assumed I’d go for someone like Will Ferrell, but I felt that it had to be the real guy, »

Caroline Moran interview: writing Raised By Wolves

20 April 2015 12:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Raised By Wolves' co-writer chats about mining her childhood for comedy and why The Imperial Death March is the perfect writing motivator...

Tonight, the first series of Caitlin and Caroline Moran's sitcom, Raised By Wolves, comes to an end. Heavily inspired and based on their own adventures growing up in the West Midlands - although this particular writer veers geographically more towards Dudley than Wolverhampton - the six episodes have also given Rebekah Staton in particular a standout role as the kind of mum telly doesn't get very often.

Ahead of the series finale tonight, Caroline put down her pen/quill/word processor/Game Of Thrones boxset to spare us some time to talk about it...

It's a basic question, perhaps, but I'm interested in the answer. How has it been having your own sitcom on the television for the past month? How closely are you monitoring feedback and reaction to it? »

Exclusive Video Interview: Jason Statham, Paul Feig And Bobby Cannavale Talk Spy

7 April 2015 7:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’m not going to lie – I had a pretty good time at South by Southwest this year. Between seeing some of tomorrow’s hottest films (The Final Girls/Turbo Kid) and interviewing names that have been on my journalistic hit-list for years (Ryan Gosling), Austin really hit the spot, but the festival’s biggest surprise came in the form of Paul Feig’s new espionage comedy, Spy.

Starring Melissa McCarthy, I wasn’t completely sold on how her bumbling secret agent would stack up against previous films cut from the same spandex cloth, but my expectations were immediately trounced by Feig’s witty screenplay and McCarthy’s ability to play off her supporting cast. As a fan of the actress, this made me very, very happy.

As alluded to above, Spy does not succeed because of McCarthy alone – quite the opposite actually. Without people like Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, »

Statham Talks "Crank 3" & "Transporter 3"

4 April 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jason Statham will be in cinemas twice this Summer - first with the just opened "Furious 7," and then in June in Paul Feig's comedy "Spy". During press rounds for the films this week though, he spoke about two other franchises he has been a part of.

First up, "Crank". Statham starred in two films in the series, and the actor says that he hopes to do a third despite his character's apparent immolation at the end of the second film. He tells EW:

"I'd love to do Part 3, put it that way... We've been talking for years about Crank 3. The first Crank, for me, was such a great experience. It's a wacky few weeks that you have with such talented directors [Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor].

There's no rules when you're doing the Crank movies. We just keep going: 'How are we going to get this off the ground?' They have a loose idea. »

'Crank 3' May Still Happen Says Jason Statham

3 April 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This will be a big summer for Jason Statham. He has Furious 7 opening today, where he'll get to show his villainous side. And then he'll get to display his comedic chops in the Paul Feig directed Spy starring opposite Melissa McCarthy. Talking to EW about both projects, the action icon reveals that he still very much wants to make Crank 3.

Those who saw Crank didn't think there was any way they could make Crank High Voltage. But somehow Jason Statham's now legendary Chev Chelios survived a fall from a helicopter. If you've seen the movies, you know Chev has to keep moving to stay alive, which sends him on a race for his life. The second installment ended with Chev seemingly burning to a crisp. Following that up has proven to be a challenge, but they'll get their someday. About the movie, Jason Statham says:

Its budget was »

Jason Statham says there is a loose idea for Crank 3 but no script yet

3 April 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Jason Statham has made a bunch of movies in his career but few can rival the sheer fun of Crank. Both films are off the wall crazy and the closest thing to an adrenaline rush you can get from a motion picture. With participation in multiple franchises, the Crank series is one that the actor would be happy to revisit. There has been talk of a follow-up to Crank: High Voltage for years but Entertainment Weekly got this update from Statham as they discussed his role in Furious 7. »
