New "Punisher" Found


"Rome" star Ray Stevenson is reported by Latino Review to take over the titular role left by Thomas Jane in "The Punisher 2."

Coming up with a delightful tidbit on "The Punisher 2", Latino Review has claimed that filmmakers of the project have finally cast their choice on Ray Stevenson of HBO's "Rome" fame to play the titular hero as the replacement of Thomas Jane, who decided to give up the role he portrayed back in 2004's "The Punisher" last May.

Apart from the surprising info, the site also pointed out that "Green Street Hooligans" helmer Lexi Alexander is indeed in charge to direct the action flick which has its latest draft penned by Stuart Beattie. Further, it stressed that the villain would still be Jigsaw as it has reported before.

Based on the Marvel Comics Universe character created by Gerry Conway, John Romita, Sr., and Ross Andru, "Punisher 2" this time follows the title character, an alter ego of former U.S. Marine Captain Frank Castle, as he arrives in New York to take on a underworld boss who plots to take control of the underworld. On duty to produce for Lionsgate Films is Avi Arad with Kevin Feige and Stan Lee both taking the executive producers' seat.
