You might remember the movie The Transporter, starring Jason Statham as a kind of karate delivery man. He has three rules: Never change the deal, no names, and don’t kill any supervillains. Or something like that. Anyway, trash auteur extraordinaire Luc Besson is working as executive producer on a TV series based on his Transporter movies, to be shown in between Alien Sex Files 4 and Alien Sex Files 5 on Cinemax.

It’s part of Cinemax’s effort to get away from jokes like the one I just made, by placing an emphasis on scripted series like this one and their previously greenlit “Strike Back.”

No word on who they’re getting to play Frank Martin, the titular character originated by Jason Statham in the movies. Have they considered Jon Hamm? I bet he can do a pretty good British accent. (via Deadline)
