[Movies] Ed Skrein To Star In Reboot Of The Transporter
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.10.2014



Variety reports that Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones, Ill Manors) will replace Jason Statham in the reboot of EuropaCorp's Transporter series.

EuropaCorp CEO Christophe Lambert said: "We searched everywhere to find a fresh face who had the potential to become an action movie star and we've found the right match with Ed Skrein, who's not only a great actor but also has enough charisma and physical stamina to play Frank Martin (the ‘Transporter's' leading role) with brio."

The script was written by Bill Collage and Adam Cooper (Accepted, Tower Heist). Plot details have been kept secret. It will be back at the French Riviera, which is where the first film was set. The character of Frank Martin (who transports goods and asks no questions) has been given more depth and the film will explore his relationship with his father. The studio is looking for a "prominent" actor to play the father. Camille Delamarre (Brick Mansion) will direct. Luc Besson's EuropaCorp will produce with Mark Gao Fundamental FIlms (which will release the films in China). The two companies signed a new deal in July 2012 to release films.

The film has a budget of $30 million. Production begins next June. EuropaCorp is still looking at options for a US distribution deal. The first two films were directed by Louis Leterrier and earned $43.9 million and $85.1 million worldwide respectively. They were released by FOX. The third was directed by Olivier Megaton and was released by Lionsgate. It earned $108.9 million.
