ComingSoon.net posted an interview today with Crank star Jason Statham. One of the questions they asked about was whether or not another Transporter movie would be happening.
CS: Have you and Luc Besson talked at all about doing another "Transporter" movie?
Statham: Yes, we have talked about it, and we've talked about it. (laughs) I mean, people like the "Transporter" movies. I get a lot of good feedback from it. We don't want to do one next week, but give us a bit of time and we'll stick another one in the bag. I'd like to and he said he would, too.
From the sound of it, they seem like they'll put together another one a few years down the road. It'll be some time as they each pursue other projects first, but it's looking like a possibility. Honestly, the Transporter series seems like something they can easily throw together, almost like a straight-to-DVD type movie. The first Transporter was in 2002, the second one in 2005, maybe a third in 2008 or 2009. In addition, the director of the first two, Louis Leterrier, is directing the new Hulk "sequel" titled The Incredible Hulk, slated for released in 2008.
