The Director of Jason Statham's Crank Wants a Crank Cinematic Universe

Jason Statham's wildly action-packed Crank films were a blast to watch. They are some of the most adrenaline-fueled films that have ever been made and director Brian Taylor wants to expand the franchise and build a cinematic universe around it! And you know what? I would actually like to see how that would turn out. This could be absolutely insane!

This information came out of a conversation with Movie Crypt Podcast while talking about the possibility of seeing Crank 3 and some of the concepts he's planning for it. After joking that "prospects for Crank 3 would be much improved if the second movie had made more than $12 at the box office," he said:

"My feeling about Crank 3 is that Crank 3 should be as exponentially more f—ed up than Crank 2 as Crank 2 was Crank 1. Obviously, there’s been talk here and there but I’ve never really felt that creatively

Crank director wants a Crank movie universe

Simon Brew Jan 31, 2018

Not only does the co-director of Crank want Crank 3, starring Jason Statham. He was a Crank Cinematic Universe.

Crank, then. Regular readers will surely know by now where we stand on the film, arguably the pinnacle – and lord, we don’t say this lightly – of The mighty Statham’s oeuvre to date. And whilst Crank 2 was far patchier, it nonetheless had a great tagline, and a terrific bit in it we’ve no intention of spoiling.

The co-director of the film, Brian Tyler (who made the movie alongside Mark Neveldine), is doing promotion for his new movie, the deliriously nutty Mom & Dad, starring Nicolas Cage. And rightly, interviewers have been asking the key question: where the hell is Crank 3?

Damaged by the poor box office for the second film is the obvious answer. But Tyler is clearly keen for more.

Chatting to the Movie Crypt Podcast, he

Nicolas Cage Can Now Be Put Into Any Movie in History Thanks to A Machine-Learning Algorithm

Nicolas Cage Can Now Be Put Into Any Movie in History Thanks to A Machine-Learning Algorithm
Nicolas Cage is no stranger to internet memes, but it’ll be very hard to outdo the current Cage meme sweeping the nation. A piece of software known on the internet as FakeApp utilizes an algorithm that makes it possible to scan a celebrity’s face and upload it onto preexisting video content, so naturally people have begun inserting Nicolas Cage into every movie on the planet.

Forget superhero or Universal Monsters cinematic universes – how about a Crank cinematic universe, based around Jason Statham‘s unstoppable character Chev Chelios?

‘Crank’ Director Thinks There Should Be A ‘Crank’ Cinematic Universe

” ‘Crank 3‘ is going to happen. The studios are really excited about it — it’s just all about timing,” director Mark Neveldine proclaimed in 2011, but seven years later there has been absolutely no movement on that front. The sad fact is that while “Crank” and “Crank: High Voltage” occupied a weird part of the pop culture conversation between 2006 and 2009, by time the second movie rolled out, the allure of Jason Statham essentially killing himself to stay alive started to wear out.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure movie review: cute boys at the end of the world

MaryAnn’s quick take… The Auto-Tuned boy-band version of the apocalypse. You will forgive that every plot point that isn’t a cliché is in fact a plot hole because the hero is so dreamy and impossibly perfect, right? I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of the previous films

I have not read the source material

So, a bunch of kids — okay, just boys — are trapped in a mysterious Glade at the center of a massive Maze, and there are monsters in the Maze that keep them inside. Also, the Maze is constantly changing configuration. Also too, they all have amnesia so they don’t know who they are. Some of them have been there for years. Then Thomas arrives, and he is the Hero,

Mom and Dad Review: A Hammer to the Face That Never Stops Swinging

Mom and Dad Review: A Hammer to the Face That Never Stops Swinging
Should you see Mom and Dad? Definitely. Does that mean it's a good movie? Definitely not. It's an exercise in brutality that will test your endurance for over the top mayhem. But god, is it a lot of fun. And it shows off Nicolas Cage at the height of his powers. The actor is definitely self-aware and working with a director he's extremely comfortable with. Cage is doing his best Nicolas Cage impression, turned up to full volume with the knob broken off, even before the shit hits the fan. Yes, it's that type of movie.

What's really going on in Mom and Dad? The movie doesn't bother answering that, at all. In a small town, parents want to kill their kids. And that's the premise. Brian Taylor, of Neveldine and Taylor, writes and directs this as a solo mission. He's one half off the team responsible for Jason Statham

‘Mom and Dad’ Review: Nicolas Cage Just Wants to Murder His Children

Anyone who appreciated the batshit insanity that Brian Taylor (alongside his former filmmaking partner Mark Neveldine) brought to the Crank series should be excited about his latest movie based purely on the premise and headlining cast member. It’s about a world where parents suddenly and inexplicably start murderin’ they children. It stars Nicolas Cage as the primary poppa with bloodlust. That means Mom and Dad has the potential for both the filmmaker and star to do what they do best: deliriously fly over-the-top with a bad taste premise for the sake of sick laughs and B-movie …

Review: If Loving Mom And Dad is Wrong, This Writer Doesn’t Want to Be Right

  • DailyDead
As someone who revels in the unabashed ridiculousness and wrongness of the Crank films, Mom and Dad was just the kind of anarchic cinema I was hoping to experience from writer/director Brian Taylor (who helmed the aforementioned Crank films alongside Mark Neveldine). A mix of survival/pandemic horror with a steady flow of pitch-black comedy coursing through its wonderfully nasty veins, Mom and Dad is just the right amount of wrong for this writer, and I enjoyed that Taylor—as expected—doesn’t pull any punches with his latest over-the-top endeavor.

In Mom and Dad, we meet struggling parents Brent (Nicolas Cage) and Kendall (Selma Blair), who are having difficulties in their marriage, as the stresses of creating two children (Anne Winters, Zackary Arthur) and all the responsibilities that come along with parenthood have seemed to rob the couple’s very existences of any kind of joy. Amidst their

Nic Cage and Selma Blair Try to Kill Their Kids in Mom And Dad Trailer

A teenage girl and her little brother must survive a wild 24 hours during which a mass hysteria of unknown origins causes parents to turn violently on their own kids.

That's the premise of Brian Taylor's (Crank) new film and it looks bananas.

The film sees release tomorrow, January 19, 2017.

I have a screener eating a hole in my inbox that I just can't seem to get to but I can't wait to experience the madness.

Interview: Writer/Director Brian Taylor on the Controversial Nature of Mom And Dad and Developing the New Series Happy!

  • DailyDead
When I first heard that filmmaker Brian Taylor (the Crank films, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance) was teaming up with Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair for a brand new pitch black comedy called Mom and Dad, in which parents are desperately trying to kill their offspring, I was immediately all in (and thankfully, it did not disappoint—but more on that later this week).

Daily Dead recently caught up with Taylor, and he discussed making Mom and Dad and handling the more controversial aspects of the film’s story, using dark humor to confront the conflicting nature of parental responsibilities, and re-teaming with Cage. Taylor also briefly chatted about his new series Happy!, which currently airs on Syfy on Wednesday nights (and is absolutely worth your time).

Look for Mom and Dad in theaters and on digital platforms this Friday, January 19th, courtesy of Momentum Pictures.

Mom And Dad Interview: Brian Taylor Talks Working Again With Nicolas Cage

After working together with Mark Neveldine in Crank and its sequel, Gamer and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Brian Taylor is back with his first solo effort: Mom and Dad starring Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair. For the first time, Taylor has ordinary people as protagonists, the titular mom and dad who are facing such issues as midlife crisis and parenting a rebellious teenage girl (Anne Winters) and a restless little boy (Zackary Arthur). Even if these situations are mundane, the real conflict of the film is pretty damn extraordinary, as is characteristic of Taylor’s genre cinema. There’s an epidemic, of unknown origin, that turns parents into ruthless killers, whose only victims are their own children. A horror/thriller movie with dark humor and another insane...

Synopsis:

A teenage girl and her little brother must survive a wild 24 hours during which a mass hysteria of unknown origins causes parents to turn violently on their own kids.

Folks, we have another one for the always hilarious Nicolas Cage montages of insanity; a clip of the veteran actor (known for unprecedented levels of craziness in his older years) destroying a pool table while intensely wide-eyed yelling out The Hokey Pokey. The kicker is that although it is a flashback integrated into the middle of Mom and Dad (written and directed by Brian Taylor who is most the for the Crank franchise, utilizing that same punk rock and frenetic style here as well), this is a father Before
