If the Bourne and Transporter movies are enough to make a trend, “legacy” is the new action-movie code word for reboot.

Variety reports that Luc Besson’s (Lucy, The Fifth Element) EuropaCorp has announced the title for the first installment of a new Transporter trilogy: The Transporter Legacy. The film will star Ed Skrein (pictured above) as a young frank Martin—Jason Statham’s character in the original Transporter movies.

The new film will be directed by Camille Delamarre (Brick Mansions) from a script by Bill Collage and Adam Cooper (Accepted), and it will arrive in U.S. theaters on March 6, 2015.

Legacy plans to follow Martin as a young mercenary as he teams up with a group of assailants to take down a group of Russian human traffickers. So yes, it will make roughly as much sense as the other three Transporter films.
