When Twentieth Century Fox released The Transporter in October 2002, the film became a worldwide theatrical hit. Produced and co-written by acclaimed filmmaker Luc Besson, The Transporter became an even greater success on DVD. At the same time, the picture launched Jason Statham as Hollywood’s newest action star, with Frank Martin becoming Statham’s signature role.
Says Statham: “Everywhere I went, people would tell me how much they loved The Transporter and the character of Frank Martin. The Transporter is an especially important role for me because it’s influenced my career more than any film I’ve done.”
According to Transporter 2 director Louis Leterrier, who was Artistic Director on The Transporter, the original film’s appeal centered on Statham’s portrayal of the title role.
