Our monkey man Patrick Dane is fresh out of today’s The Expendables 2 junket and has been straight onto the mobile internet to send us a key quote from Sylvester Stallone. That’s how movie blogging works now, don’t you know?
Later this year, Cinemax will unveil their TV version of The Transporter. The original Europacorp movies starred Jason Statham in the title role of Frank Martin, driver for hire, but he’s been replaced by Chris Vance for the small screen spin-off.
