Frank Martin, played by newcomer Ed Skrein, a former special-ops mercenary, is now living a less perilous life- or so he thinks- as an independent agent contracted to transport classified packages for questionable people.
When Frank’s father (Ray Stevenson), pays him a visit in the south of France, their father-son bonding weekend soon takes a turn for the worst when Frank is engaged by the cunning femme-fatale, Anna (Loan Chabonal), and her three seductive sidekicks on a mission to orchestrate the bank heist of the century. Frank must use his covert expertise and knowledge of fast cars, fast driving and fast women in an attempt to outrun a sinister Russian kingpin, and worse than that, they are thrust into a dangerous game of chess with a team of gorgeous women looking for revenge.
At the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, a new trilogy was announced with EuropaCorp and China’s Fundamental Films co-producing and distributing the titles. The films will likely be budgeted between $30 million and $40 million each and at least one will be shot in China. Luc Besson will co-finance, distribute, produce and write all the films. English actor Ed Skrein will replace Jason Statham as Frank Martin in the fourth installment of the series. In March 2015, the title was changed from The Transporter Legacy to The Transporter: Refueled.
