Casting News for Cable Series Adaptation of Transporter Films

Transporter (Film Series)

Earlier this year Cinemax announced it was developing a 12-episode crime drama based on "The Transporter" series of theatrical thrillers.

Now we're learning that the two primary roles for the new series have been cast. Chris Vance (Mental; recurring roles on Prison Break, Burn Notice, Dexter) will play expert driver and professional transporter Frank Martin -- played by Jason Statham in the three "Transporter" films -- who has only three rules: never change the deal, no names, and never open the package. Andrea Osvárt will play his handler, an ex-CIA operative who organizes his missions.

Production is expected to begin this summer.
