The Transporter series has set a high bar for action adventure, having delivered some of the most memorable action packed sequences in the genre. Fans will see new and fresh talent don the leading roles this time, taking the franchise ahead with a new spin and flavor.

.
Elaborating on the same, Skrein said, “I used to be a competitive swimmer and I’ve done a lot of endurance sports over the years, but since I had no martial-art experience, I turned up on that first day in the gym knowing that I really had a high mountain to climb. We wanted to create a unique system of fighting, different from the previous franchise and from all the other movies we’ve seen. It was a mix of Krav Maga, Kali, Filipino stick fighting, English boxing and close combat. Fight choreographer Alain Figlarz is a genius and he created the perfect environment for me to grow physically and mentally.”

To be released by Relativity-B4U, the action packed biggie, for pan-Indian appeal, is all set to release in 4 languages: English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu in IMAX as well 4th September, 2015.
