Copies of the DVD “Crank,” a movie written and directed by Mark Neveldine '95, are now available at the College Store.
The full-screen version of the film stars Jason Statham as Chev Chelios, a hit man who learns that a poison injected into his body will kill him if his heart rate drops below a certain point. The cast also includes Efren Ramirez, Amy Smart and Dwight Yoakam.
The film is based on an original screenplay by Neveldine and Brian Taylor, both of whom directed in their debut.
