'Transporter' TV Series: Chris Vance Replaces Jason Statham

Digital Spy:
A new trailer has been unveiled for the Transporter TV series.

The Cinemax action drama will see Prison Break actor Chris Vance assume the role of extreme driver Frank Martin, played by Jason Statham in the original Transporter movies.

French actor François Berléand - who played Martin's ally Inspector Tarconi in the Transporter films - will reprise his role in the series.

The show, to air in the US in late 2012, has suffered a troubled production. Original executive producers Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie quit the project last August, with replacement showrunner Steve Shill also departing the series in January this year.

I love Jason Statham and especially as the Transporter but Chris Vance has always been a very good character actor and I think he'll be able to pull this off. I'm glad the French inspector will be the same person.

Who knows...I may have to pay for Cinemax when this finally comes out.
