THE TRANSPORTER Set To Take Off Again With A New Trilogy

Jason Statham made a name for himself as Hollywood's next answer to delivering martial arts action cinema to the big screen with the release of the 2002 smash hit, The Transporter. Following two more sequels, in addition to a French-Canadian television series of the same name starring Chris Vance as of recent, reports are now coming in from Variety that Luc Besson's company, EuropaCorp, has partnered with Mark Gao's China-based Fundemental Films to produce and finance another trilogy of Transporter movies.

The success of the first three films have granted the 45-year old action star a place in blockbuster movie history, with films like The One, War and the first two Expendable films with Jet Li, as well as roles in films such as In The Name Of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, Death Race, The Killer Elite, The Mechanic, Safe, and Parker, and upcoming films such as Redemption and Homefront. Statham is slated to star in the upcoming July 2014 release of Fast And Furious 7, directed by James Wan.

The first three Transporter films havr earned a total of well over $220 million dollars in their theatrical releases, with the first two debuting from 20th Century Fox, and the third premiering courtesy of Lionsgate.

Transporter 4 is currently in development with no director attached as of yet, and no word as to whether or not Statham will don the black suit and tie once more for the role. Meanwhile, Besson is currently involved in the Montreal-based production of Brick Mansions starring Paul Walker and David Belle.

QUESTION: If Statham isn't nabbed for the role for in the next trilogy, who could take his place?
