Frank Martin Returns

Jason Statham as Frank Martin

Lionsgate has snagged the stateside and Canadian distribution rights for Transporter 3 and you can expect it for Turkey Day this year. Olivier Megaton (does that sound like a Bond villain name or what?) is directing. The script is by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, who wrote the first two. Robert Knepper from Prison Break is in the cast and Francois Berleand is returning. The film is in post-production right now. But here's my favorite part of the press release right here: the synopsis...

Jason Statham returns as Frank Miller, the ex-Special Forces operative who specializes in high-risk deliveries.

First up, that's what the press release says. Which means that Jason Statham is...directing The Spirit? What? Okay, let's correct that for them and be fair:

Jason Statham returns as Frank Martin, the ex-Special Forces operative who specializes in high-risk deliveries.

Now from what I can figure, that's probably not just the synopsis, but also the entirety of the script. And I'm probably okay with that.
