Jason Statham?s Frank Martin from the original Transporter movie is the one and only original Frank Martin that anyone may ever remember. Given that it was a relatively small film that was made to be just passable enough to get some audience, the Transporter would have been forgotten a long time ago. But the hardened character that Jason Statham made in the movie created a world-class phenomenon garnering millions of fans and eventually creating unique sequels. Now that Jason Statham is out of the picture, another Frank Martin enters into the picture with Ed Skrein playing the new role. Martin takes it personal now as the new trailer of ?The Transporter Refueled? has been released online, courtesy of Machinima.
Ed Skrein, known for his role as Daario Nahari in a couple of Game of Throne episodes, takes Jason Statham?s role and may take it to whole other level, depending on Transporter fans if they?re going to accept a new Frank Martin. Although the new trailer doesn?t show much of the plot, it exhibits more intense footage, from hand-to-hand combat to awesome car chasing. Expect a whole lot of exciting fresh stunts that will keep you on your toes.
?The Transporter Refueled? will show a whole new side to Frank Martin approaching a more personal stand from the film. The reboot will be directed by Camille Delamarre, also known in producing films ?Lucy? and ?Taken.?
So take a look at the new trailer, watch out for the movie, and judge the new Frank Martin for yourself. You may be surprised at what Ed Skrein?s energy may bring to the new and some may call improved Transporter.
The Transporter Refueled crashes into theaters on September 4. The film will star Ed Skrein, Ray Stevenson, Loan Chabanol, Gabriella Wright, Tatiana Pajkovic, Wenxia Yu, Rasha Bukvic, Lenn Kudrjawizki and Anatole Taubman.
