THE TRANSPORTER Series Receiving a Reboot with Plans for an Origin Story and New Trilogy

The Transporter movies are very silly, and their sequels have helped pushed their directors into bigger franchises.  Transporter 2 eventually launched Louis Leterrier to The Incredible Hulk and Clash of the Titans, and Transporter 3 director Olivier Megaton went on to Taken 2 and now he’s set for Taken 3.  But the films themselves have disappeared with Transporter 3 hitting theaters back in 2008, although they’ve continued as a TV series starring Chris Vance, first in 2011 on Cinemax, and now a second season on TNT later this year.  Rather than simply picking the films back up and recasting the simple role of a guy who is good at driving and fighting, Luc Besson‘s EuropaCorp is going to reboot the series and turn it into becoming an origin story.  That’s kind of dumb, but then again so are the Transporter movies.
