Crank script
Crank (1993)
Synopsis: Chev Chelios (Jason Statham), a hit man wanting to go straight, lets his latest target slip away, then he awakes the next morning to a phone call that informs him he has been poisoned and has only an hour to live unless he keeps adrenaline coursing through his body while he searches for an antidote.



We see him sitting on CHEV'S bed ... CHEV is visible in the

frame, unconscious behind VERONA. Pale nicotine sunlight

filters in through the blinds. There are HOODS loitering

around the room. It was apparently shot only hours before.


The discernible sound of CHEV'S heartbeat will subliminally

increase in speed and volume throughout VERONA'S monologue -

the cell phone continues to ring, somewhere.)


What's shaking, douchebag? Thought I'd

give you the heads up. You're dead.

On the TV - VERONA points into the CAMERA.


Yeah, that's right, you little bitch ...

if you're watching this tape it means

that I somehow resisted the urge to

dismember you and shove the pieces down

the garbage disposal ... opting instead

to poison you in your sleep. Yeah, you

heard me...

We stay with CHEV'S POV as he flashes a frantic glance around

the room. The LUBDUB of the HEARTBEAT is much LOUDER AND

FASTER NOW; we really begin to notice it.


... I fucking poisoned you in your sleep.

How sick is that?... for the satisfaction

of watching you squirm out your last

minutes knowing it was me that did it to

you, and there's nothing you can do about


Cut to high angle view from a hidden lipstick camera; CHEV is 5

on his knees in front of the set, looking around ... we still

don't see his face clearly.


5A 5A

... that's right, you're on candid

camera, try not to embarrass yourself...

Cut back to CHEV'S POV. He holds his head down over the 5

carpet and shoves a finger in his mouth, GAGGING.
