‘Transporter’ Comes To The Small Screen, Plenty Of Action to Follow [Video]
I’ve admitted my guilty pleasure about action movies before and one of those movies has been the Transporter series with Jason Statham so when I first heard that there was a move to bring it to the small screen I felt that twinge of guilty pleasure surfacing.
The idea of seeing the style of action as seen in the movies shrunk down to a television series certainly raised some doubts as to whether they could pull it off but after seeing the freshly released trailer for the Cinemax series I’m feeling a little better.
Here’s the synopsis for the show
…. this fast-paced series follows the adventures of professional transporter Frank Martin, who can always be counted on to get the job done – discreetly. Operating in a seedy underworld of dangerous criminals and desperate players, his three rules are: Never change the deal, no names, and never open the package. Occasionally, complications arise and rules get broken.
Andrea Osvart (Duplicity) co-stars as Martin’s trusted handler Carla and Francois Berléandreprises his role of Inspector Tarconi from the films. The cast also includes Delphine Chanéac(Splice) in the recurring role of Juliette, a reporter who seems to know a lot about Frank’s work, and Rachel Skarsten (Made,Birds of Prey) as Delia, the daughter of someone from Frank’s past.
While there is no definite release date for the series they are saying it will be later this year and come in 12 parts.
