Watch an exclusive stunt car interview with The Transporter Refueled’s Ed Skrein!
Racing into theaters this Friday is The Transporter Refueled, a new chapter in the hit action franchise that sets Ed Skrein as former special-ops mercenary Frank Martin. To get a behind-the-scenes look at the new film, ComingSoon.net rode shotgun with Ed Skrein himself behind the wheel of special movie stunt car!
In the player below, you can check out a high speed conversation with Ed Skrein, who explains what went into one of the new film’s most impressive action sequences and how he feels about taking on the role made famous by Jason Statham. He also talks about where he sees his career heading in the future and why action roles like this and his upcoming turn as Ajax in Deadpool is just the tip of the iceberg.
In the new film, Frank Martin is now living a less perilous life – or so he thinks – transporting classified packages for questionable people. When Frank’s father (Ray Stevenson) pays him a visit in the south of France, their father-son bonding weekend takes a turn for the worse when Frank is engaged by a cunning femme-fatale, Anna (Loan Chabanol), and her three seductive sidekicks to orchestrate the bank heist of the century. Frank must use his covert expertise and knowledge of fast cars, fast driving and fast women to outrun a sinister Russian kingpin, and worse than that, he is thrust into a dangerous game of chess with a team of gorgeous women out for revenge.
Written by Adam Cooper & Bill Collage & Luc Besson and directed by Camille Delamarre, The Transporter Refueled also stars Gabriella Wright, Tatiana Pajkovic, Wenxia Yu, Rasha Bukvic, Lenn Kudrjawizki, Anatole Taubman and Noemie Lenoir.
