Jason Statham would "slap Bond around"

Jason Statham is Britain's hardest action export, so it's about time someone asked him how his Transporter character would fare against Britain's biggest action export. Surprise surprise, he reckons he'd win.

"Oh, he’d slap old Bond around a couple of times, wouldn’t he?” says Statham of Transporter 3's Frank Martin.

Own fight scenes

“You know, it’s difficult to say but we do a lot of our own fight sequences and we keep it pretty realistic and pretty cool. We don’t have many stunt doubles. Not to take anything away from what the Bond franchise people do, but I know they work with a lot of stuntmen and we tend to get stuck in and do our own stuff.”

But what about the other super-spy franchise, Bourne? Could Martin beat him in a race, say?

“A road race?” Well, it’s gonna be me looking in the rear view mirror I suppose!”
