The Transporter Refueled (known as Le Transporteur Héritage in France) is an action thriller film directed by Camille Delamarre and written by Bill Collage, Adam Cooper, and Luc Besson. It is the fourth film in the Transporter franchise and the first film to be distributed by EuropaCorp in North America, but features a new cast, with Ed Skrein replacing Jason Statham as the title role of Frank Martin.
Filming began on 1 August 2014, in Paris, France. The film was released on 4 September 2015 in the United States and 9 September in France.



Former special-operations mercenary Frank Martin is living a less perilous lifestyle than he had previously, transporting classified packages for questionable people. However, he finds himself thrust into danger again when prostitute Anna and her accomplices Gina, Maria, and Qiao orchestrate a bank robbery and kidnap Martin's father to confront and kill Arkady Karasov, a human trafficker who had victimized Anna years earlier.



At the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, a new trilogy was announced with EuropaCorp and China's Fundamental Films co-producing and distributing the titles.[4][5] The films will likely be budgeted between €25 million and €30 million each and at least one will be shot in China.[6] Luc Besson will co-finance, distribute, produce and write all the films.[7] English actor Ed Skrein replaced Jason Statham as Frank Martin in the fourth installment of the series.[8] In March 2015, the title was changed from The Transporter Legacy to The Transporter Refueled.
Principal photography of the film began on 1 August 2014, in Paris, France.[9][10][11][12]


The film was previously set to be released on 6 March 2015.[9] On 5 November 2014, EuropaCorp moved the film for a 19 June 2015 release.[13] On 1 April 2015, EuropaCorp again moved the film back to a 4 September 2015.[14]


Box office

As of September 13, 2015, The Transporter Refueled has grossed $13.3 million in North America and $10 million in other territories for a worldwide total of $23.3 million, against a budget of $22 million.[3]
