It has been claimed that spoilers about the sequel to the action drama "Crank", "Crank 2: High Voltage", have been circulating on the interwebs. According to TheBadAndUgly.com, bits of the film's plot details as well as the character description have been outed online.
In the new film's storyline, it was revealed that the lead character, Chev Chelios played by Jason Statham, will have an artificial heart as his "nearly indestructible heart" has been stolen by a Chinese mobster. Explaining about the plot, the site noted down, "In spite of having fallen a mile from a helicopter at the end of CRANK, Chev 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."
Aside from the plot, the site also let out that on the casting sheet, the mobster stealing Chelios' heart will be known as Hu Dong who is a 100-year-old leader of the Triad gang in Southern California. The site further noted the character's description writing, "Rejuvenated after getting Chev's high-powered heart transplanted into his sunken chest, and horny as a 16 year old, he is lured into Doc Miles' clutches by the seductive Vanilla." Apart from Dong and Vanilla, apparently there will be a stripper character known as Pepper in the film as well.
