With Jason Statham having decided to leave the Transporter franchise that was instrumental in the rise of his career as an action film star, the producers have found a replacement in the form of Game Of Thrones actor Ed Skrein.
According to Variety, the franchise’s producers EuropaCorp are looking at rebooting the franchise, and that writers Bill Collage and Adam Cooper “have given more depth to the character of Frank Martin, whose job is to transport goods and ask no questions. For instance, the movie will explore Martin’s relationship with his father.” Further plot details are being kept secret for the time being.
If they’re going to reboot the Transporter franchise I guess this guy is as good as any, and not just because he’s bald. He’s already started to make a name for himself and as demonstrated before, the franchise has the potential to make that a much bigger name for him.
