IMAX Corporation and EuropaCorp announced Monday that The Transporter Refueled, the re-imagining of the trilogy in the studio’s action franchise, will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX format and released into IMAX theatres domestically on Sept. 4, followed by a select international footprint in IMAX theatres.

Starring newcomer Ed Skrein, The Transporter Refueled, which will be distributed domestically by Relativity EuropaCorp Distribution (RED) — the joint marketing and distribution venture between Relativity Studios and EuropaCorp — is directed by Camille Delamarre (Brick Mansions), from a script by Bill Collage and Adam Cooper.

The film is based on characters developed by Robert Mark Kamen and EuropaCorp founder Luc Besson, who produced the film with Mark Gao.

The Transporter Refueled

Frank Martin, played by Ed Skrein, a former special-ops mercenary, 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 soon takes a turn for the worse when Frank is engaged by a cunning femme-fatale, Anna (Loan Chabonal), 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 looking for revenge.

From the producers of Lucy and the Taken trilogy, The Transporter Refueled is a fresh personification of the role of Frank Martin that launches the high-octane franchise into the present day and introduces it to the next generation of thrill-seekers.
