In case you’ve been living under a rock, production is currently underway for Transporter: Legacy, the first in a new trilogy from producers Luc Besson and Mark Gao since their mid-Cannes deal announcement last year.
Following the previous trilogy with action star Jason Statham, the new trilogy kicks off with new male lead, former Game Of Thrones actor Ed Skrein
in a younger iteration of the franchise protagonist, ex-soldier, underworld courier and mercenary, Frank Martin who is forced to help four women with a heist in order to save his kidnapped father from Russian human traffickers. The new film is being shot on-location in France where new French language-only set video is now available for viewing, courtesy of a new report from Culture Box
Skrein is joined by True Blood actress Gabriella Wright and A Good Day To Die Hard co-star Radivoje Bukvic, with actresses Loan Chabanol and Tatiana Pajkovic and actor Ray Stevenson rounding out the current cast. Brick Mansions helmer Camille Delamarre is directing from a script by Besson and Exodus: Gods And Kings co-scribes Bill Collage and Adam Cooper, the latter two who are also drafting the screenplay for next year’s Assassin’s Creed film.
Transporter: Legacy speeds off in theaters on March 6, 2015.
