"The Transporter" films were never the most highly accomplished of cinematic endeavors, but they cruised along on the charm of Jason Statham and a basic respect for cutting decent action sequences.

'The Long Good Friday' To Become A TV Series; 'Transporter' Gets Greenlit By CinemaxAs we mentioned earlier today in our "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequel story, Hollywood loves nothing more than taking a single property and finding new ways to draw money from the same well over and over and over again. The formula keeps working because everyone keeps handing over their money for these movies no matter how diminishing the returns. And from a studio perspective, it costs far less to simply dust off an old piece of material than to get an original project off the ground. That's the game that's being played today, so no shock then that two more films are getting spitshined for new, and probably, blander versions.
