Even though Jason Statham is not returning as Frank Martin (the Transporter), Ed Skrein (perhaps best known for his role as Daario Naharis in Game of Thrones Season 3) brings the same edge and personality Statham gave the iconic character.
The trailer promises similar elements from the previous films including hand-to-hand combat, driving stunts, beautiful women and European scenery. It seems this new film is not trying to change much from the previous films, which is fine. Why fix what isn’t broken? Skrein gives off a great Statham vibe and will probably fit just fine in his predecessor’s shoes, even if it does have a certain “direct to VOD” vibe.
