Jason Statham Replaced by "Game of Thrones" Actor in "Transporter" Reboot

Jason Statham Replaced by "Game of Thrones" Actor in "Transporter" RebootSubmit Comment
It was just reported that EuropaCorp is rebooting the "Transporter" franchise, with plans of developing a new trilogy. Jason Statham is not returning to play Frank Martin, and now comes word that he'll be replaced by "Game of Thrones" actor Ed Skrein.

"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," said EuropaCorp CEO Christophe Lambert.

Bill Collage and Adam Cooper (Tower Heist) wrote the script, which will bring Frank Martin back to the French Riviera and explore Martin's relationship with his father.

"Brick Mansion" director Camille Delammare is directing. Filming is set to begin in June.

Shave your head and work out. That's all it takes these days to make it in the world of action-oriented film.


And who the f*ck wants to watch an action film directed by a man named Camille?

He looks like a younger version of Luke Goss..who coincidentally replaced Jason Statham in the Death Race prequels...I know too much.
