Thanks to some prosthetic work on the set of Crank 2: High Voltage, there is no longer anything derogatory about saying that Jason Statham has a big head. Because now he does, in fact, have a huge noggin. The photo above, which was released as part of a Los Angeles Times Hollywood Backlot report, shows a giant Statham head that was made up for a particular scene in the film.

The scene, about which we have few details, was shot on a miniature set with both Statham’s character Chev Chelios and an un-named bad guy. Needless to say, it comes from the twisted minds of co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, so it will certainly be an interesting experience.

Crank 2: High Voltage sees the return of Chev Chelios, who has obviously survived the horrific fall taken at the end of the first Crank. This time around he has had his heart removed by a Chinese mobster and replaced by a battery-powered ticker that requires regular jolts of electricity to keep working. It is a little far-fetched, but what did you expect. Along with Jason Statham, Crank 2 will see the return of Amy Smart and Dwight Yoakam to they roles they played in the first film. Joining the cast are Corey Haim, Clifton Collins Jr. and Bai Ling. The film will hit theaters on April 17, 2009.
