Jason Statham literally carried The Transporter franchise! He played the role of Frank Martin in the original movie The Transporter (2002), which later brought in two sequels – Transporter 2 (2005) and Transporter 3 (2008).

In fact most would agree that it’s a bit hard to witness someone else as the famed Transporter apart from Statham, as we will soon see Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones) play the same role in the upcoming The Transporter Refueled.

Reports coming in suggest that Jason Statham wanted to do more films in the Transporter franchise, however he was asked to sign on for three more films without seeing the script and was offered less money for the three films than what he gets for one! Hence, the 47-year-old actor admitted that he had to decline the offer.

The Transporter Refueled is being directed by Camille Delamarre. The film, which was initially supposed to release on June 19, has been pushed back, and will now come out on September 4.
