Three new Transporter movies planned, without Statham

News Simon Brew 7 Feb 2014 - 11:29

Transporter 4, Transporter 5 and Transporter 6 are apparently on the way. Without Jason Statham,

We're playing good cop, bad cop with this story. Good cop: plans are afoot for three new The Transporter movies! Bad cop: none of them will have The Statham in them.

Instead, the idea is to do the origin story of his character, Frank Martin, and recast the role.

It is our job to remain professional, and not to let our feelings show through when we're reporting stories such as this, and rest assured we're fully going to be behave ourselves.

The Transporter 4, which will be made without The Statham for fuc...oops nearly, will be a Chinese co-production, and if it does well - in spite of not having The Statham in it - the two further sequels will be activated.

Jason Statham will not be appearing in these films.

There's no release date that we know of for the Statham-less Transporter 4 WHATKINDOFBLOODYIDIOTMAKESATRANSPORTERFILMWITHOUT STATHAMSORRY but when we have one, we'll think about passing the news on.

The first three Transporter movies, all of which star Jason Statham, are available in a very attractive boxset.

How can you have a Transporter movie without The Statham? It would be like having a xXx movie without Vin Diesel.

Oh....

Smokey and the Bandit 3 anyone?

no point then is there ;)

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

They aren't the best films to start, but Jason Statham was the best thing in the films. My prediction there will be no transporter 5.

So... Transporter 5, 6 and 7 are prequels, than you have the original trilogy and then there is a semi-sequel TV series?

disappointed with this news, the producers are a bunch of morons.......

Bad, bad news, but on the plus side, there will be another Mechanic movie!!

wank

Can't believe these guys claim to be fans of The Stath and yet still call him 'The Statham'...

Dont forget about Luc Besson's writing, i think the success of the transporter movies are in part down to him also but without the Stath i cant register an interest.

The Transporter Trilogy is made by Jason Statham..... but is utterly broken each film by the characters he has to interact with. The first film was ruined by the poor acting of both Qi Shu (Lai) and Ric Young (Mr. Kwai). The second suffered from a poor plot (Killer Virus). The third is one again ruined by the lead female Natalya Rudakova as Valentina.

If they truly do release more it's just to cash in on a dead franchise.

There's no need for an origin story, especially since it will be the generic copying of numerous blah blah blah blah . . .
Stop the stupid crap, Hollyweird.
