Cinemax has temporarily ceased production on its planned series Transporter after star Chris Vance (Prison Break, Burn Notice) was injured during an action scene.

The accident occurred on the series’ Toronto set. Production may resume in two weeks on the series that is expected to bow next year on Cinemax. “We want to ensure Chris’ return to peak physical condition before putting him back in front of the camera to continue shooting this face-paced, action-packed series,” said showrunner Steve Shill in a statement.

Vance plays expert driver and “professional transporter” Frank Martin — a role that was originated on the big screen by Jason Statham. Luc Besson, who co-wrote all three of the Transporter movies, is executive producing the series.

In May, Vance described the series to EW as “high octane. Fast-paced. Action-packed. Car chases. Stunts. Fights, Beautiful girls. Villains. Heroes. Guns. It should be a lot of fun.”

    2 weeks recovery suggests a minor sprain type injury rather than severed limb so bigyay to that :)

    FYI, what is “face-paced”, EW?

    • CJ

      “face-paced” is a symptom of thinking faster than you type (and then not proofing).

      • AshleyBrooke

        Hahaha!

  • @Ashley

    What is “reading comrehension”?

    • AshleyBrooke

      What is “spell comprehension right”? By the way, it’s still wrong.

  • frank

    Love the idea, but Jason Stathem is the Transporter, no one else can own that role. How about making a better sequal than the last one, that one stunk.

  • niko

    letr me guess that the character he portrays in the show transports guns but not drugs. what a friggin joke…. silly americans

  • Jennifer

    I hope Mr. Vance recovers quickly, but I completely agree with other commenters here. Without Jason Statham, there’s no point.

  • linda

    give the guy a chance wait until you see it first, Get Well Soon Chris.

  • Fido

    I’d take a Transporter series with Chris over rewatching the travesty of Transporter 3 any day :D

  • Steph

    Jason Statham is the transporter that character was created for him, there should have been a transporter 4 first, Jason’s got bigger and better things to look forward to tho, i wont watch it tho it wouldnt be the same x
