First Teaser for 'The Transporter Refueled' Speeds Online
"Technology moves fast, doesn't it? I mean, as soon as you think they can't come up with something, they come up with something else." It's almost enough to give Frank Martin a crisis of confidence, but as the teaser trailer for The Transporter Refueled demonstrates, the world will always need men ready for anything.
The new movie is a prequel to the 2002 movie directed by Louis Leterrier, which starred Jason Statham as Martin, a driver-for-hire who can deliver any package for a price. This time around, it's Ed Skrein taking on the role. But while the face might be different, the rules remain the same: no names, never change the deal and never ever open the package.
Also in the movie is Ray Stevenson as Martin's father, with Gabriella Wright, Tatiana Pajkovic and Anatole Taubman also making appearances.
Refueled is the first in an intended trilogy of movies relaunching the series, with Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen providing the story behind Bill Collage and Adam Cooper's screenplay. Camille Delamarre directs.
The Transporter Refueled will be released June 19.
