First official look at Ed Skrein as The Transporter

September 15th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Are you excited for the Transporter reboot? No, we’re not either but none-the-less it IS coming…. and here’s the first official picture thanks to IGN.

Ed Skrein, the guy who played Daario Naharis on the third season of Game of Thrones, takes over the role made famous by FTN favourite Jason Statham.

The official synopsis reads: “In the criminal underworld of France, Frank Martin (Ed Skrein – Game of Thrones) is known as The Transporter; the best driver and mercenary money can buy. Frank will deliver anything for a price. He abides by 3 simple rules: no names, no questions and no renegotiations.that is until he meets a mysterious and lethal femme fatale Anna (Loan Chabanol), leader of a group of deadly assailants. Stopping at nothing to take down a group of ruthless Russian human traffickers, Anna knows Frank is the best man for the job and holds his father (Ray Stevenson – Thor, Divergent) for ransom to ensure his cooperation. Now Frank and his father are forced to team up with Anna to bring these villains to justice. The Transporter Legacy is a relentless, high octane ride that takes the Transporter franchise to explosive new heights.”

The Transporter: Legacy is due next year and also stars Ray Stevenson, Radivoje Bukvic, Gabriella Wright, Anatole Taubman and Tatiana Pajkovic.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
