Do you remember The Transporter? Yep the action movie franchise starring Jason Statham. Well Luc Besson’s EuropaCorps wants to reboot the franchise with a new actor. They’re planning a prequel that will star Ed Skrein (an actor from the TV series “Game of Thrones”) in the lead role as Frank Martin aka the Transporter. Besides Ed Skrein , the cast also includes Loan Chabanol, Radivoje Bukvic, Gabriella Wright, and Anatole Taubman. Here’s the plot synopsis:
“The fast-paced action movie is again set in the criminal underworld in France, where Frank Martin (Skrein) is known as The Transporter, because he is the best driver and mercenary money can buy. In this installment, he meets Anna (Chabanol) and they attempt to take down a group of ruthless Russian human traffickers who also have kidnapped Frank’s father.”
Do you think Ed Skrein is fit enough to take over the role of Frank Martin? Will you miss Jason Statham?
The release date of The Transporter Legacy is set to March 6, 2015.
