Transporter: The TV Show?

on Wednesday, April 28, 2010

There's talk saying that Producer Luc Besson, producer of the "Transporter Trilogy", wants to bring the franchise onto the small-screen for a TV series reboot.
It has not been announced yet wether actor Jason Statham from the big-screen trilogy will return or not. But if the producer is, then the actor may as well, even for a cameo, if the series is gonna have a new character. He could be like the "Obi Wan Kanobi to Anakin & Luke Skywalker". It could kinda work for him if a was like a mentor. No one knows who's to star in the series, if Statham doesn't return for the series.
"Transporter: The Series' is to have a budget of $4 million per episode, reasonable enough budget for each episode and it's to be 12 episodes long for the first season. So let's hope it's good enough to get at least 3 seasons. A mean that seems enough for a spin-off. Possibly more than that.
This could end up being a failed TV spin-off like various other spin-offs, such as, "Robocop", "Total Recall" and the latest being Blade: The Series". Here's hoping it's not among them.
