    New Director for Transporter 3?


    The first was co-directed by Louis Leterrier and Corey Yuen, the second by Leterrier, and now the third "Transporter" movie is expected to be helmed by a totally new face -- Olivier Megaton.

    FilmsActu.com has learned that casting for the secondary roles (we assume Jason Statham will return in the lead?) is taking place in Paris for a production start this summer.

    The site says that Megaton directed The Red Siren and was second unit director for Hitman (he shot the entire Subway fight.)

    I liked all both of them...they're not realistic action movies...they're way over the top movies, with things people can't do in real life....but I like it because of that. I hope they don't try to "Tame" the tone with the new one.

    These movies are guilty pleasures. I love them. They are entertaining off the ying yang.

    I hate that they killed off the punk chick that liked wearing Frederick's of Hollywood stuff during her killing sprees. She was the best part of the movie.

    It's comforting to know we couldn't even have time to escape would that actually happen. :csad:

    Agree on this. I understand a little over the top stunts,but this one was way out there even for this type of movie. Needs to tone it down a tad on outragous stunts,and keeep them somewhat in the Real World Realm..

    Yeah, that was freakin' ******ed. Transporter 2 actually suffered from trying to have a plot, whereas the first film mildly succeeded in spite of NOT having one. Plus, the stunt work and fighting in the first film seemed a lot more organic and didn't stretch plausibility nearly as much as the second film.

    I'm encouraged by the fact that this new director shot my favorite part in the otherwise forgettable Hitman, the subway swordfight.

    That was one of the worst scenes in an action movie, EVER. And that's saying something. The Transporter 2 was so unbelievably horrible that I can't even believe it was made. The first one was a good, fun B-movie action fest with a fairly convincing hero character. The second one was utter crap.

    Even Statham himself didn't like the car bomb -scene. And Leterrier didn't wan't to do the 2nd one. The producers forced him or something like that.

    I still dig both of 'em. :up:

    And it's crazy, 'cause looking and Transporter 2 and Unleashed, you'd swear they were done by two different directors. There's a huge stylistic divide between the two films. Should be interesting to see what Leterrier's done on Incredible Hulk.

    Haven't seen Unleashed yet. But I guess the differnce between the two comes from the freedom that Leterrier had with Unleashed.

    But that scene never made the final cut, so it stands to reason cooler heads prevailed when it came to editing the film. But then we have the mid-air corkscrew car jump to knock off a bomb in Transporter 2, so, eh!

    We'll see the Hulk do an aerial somersault and slide tackle a helicopter that happens to contain a hydrogen bomb. The bomb will level an entire city and no one will survive except the Hulk, which ultimately makes him look like the one responsible. As a result, the nations of the world with unite and shoot a billion nuclear warheads at him which will result in the extinction of life on earth (other than the Hulk). Pissed off at this turn of events, the hulk will take the planet and throw it into the sun.

    All of this will be accomplished by a lot of bad CGI.

    I love the first movie (esp. with lovely Qu Chi as the love interest), but the second movie was blah and went too overboard with unbelievable stunts (like how his car was able to do a loop and got rid of the bomb). I hope #3 will recapture the spirit of the first.
