John Abraham as the no-nonsense ex-special forces turned transporter? Yes please! After earlier gossips that Jason Statham’s The Transporter is on the cards, a new report further suggest that the remake might be inching closer. Confirming the reports that the Transporter remake is on the roll, Abraham who was contacted by Mumbai Mirror told the daily, “Well, there have been talks for a fact. I won’t deny it. But honestly, I’m not supposed to comment more on it’’.
Remakes of the 2002 English language French action movie has in fact been around for some time now. Back in May, a report in Deccan Chronicle states that John Abraham is in the talks of acquiring the rights of The Transporter. The source of the industry quoted, “It is a very good film for the kind of personality that John himself has. One is that it is a role of a ruthless mercenary who does his work with no questions asked”.
“The second is that it is a guy who loves to drive and John is pretty cool behind the wheels as well. JA Entertainment will acquire the said rights along with another film corporate so that John can play the lead in all the four films that come as a franchise,” the source further told Deccan Chronicle.
With John having a knack for car-flying, action sequences, one can definitely imagine the Batla House actor as Frank Martin.
John, meanwhile will be seen next in Anees Bazmee's Pagalpanti, Sanjay Gupta's Mumbai Saga and sports drama, 1911, with Nikkhil Advani.
‘’Pangalpanti was a fun ride, and I was happy to connect with Arshad Warsi after such a long time. It is a huge upgrade me over my last film with Anees Bazmee ,” John told Mumbai Mirror earlier this month.
