Whomp, whomp. Well, the important thing is that he is okay.
Cinemax announced today they have decided to halt production on their planned Transporter series temporarily as their star Chris Vance was injured on set.
The accident occurred while filming an action scene in Toronto, and while the ordeal sets everything back for the next two weeks, the network feels this is the best option give Chris' physical state. Showrunner Steve Shill explained:
”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."
Understandable for sure.
This does mean though, for those of you who are really looking forward to this, that the show won't air until next year. Hopefully early next year, but still - next year.
Hope you feel better soon, Chris!
