Next month the wait ends for French theatergoers with the release of action crime comedy entry, Taxi 5. The official trailer arrived at the tail end of this week signaling the efforts of actor and director Frank Gastambide who takes the mantle nearly two decades since the franchise took off.
Gastambide leads the narrative for the role of Sylvain Marot, a Marseille police transfer assigned to stop a notorious gang of Italian robbers with powerful Ferraris. His only help there after turns out to be Eddy, a hapless taxi driver and as it stands, grand-nephew to that of Daniel, played previously by celebrated actor Samy Naceri.
Actor Malik Bentalha takes on the role of Eddy joining Gastambide with returning franchise co-star Bernard Farcy whose role as Commissioner Gilbert sees him transitioning as a Mayor this time around. Follow along with the official trailer below and you’ll be welcomed to an appetizer loaded with gags and high-speed thrills that aim to make this fifth installment a well-rewarding feat for those pining for another ride.
