So he's not still writing it atleast?

 

Ray Liotta (Especially in Narc) for Frank Castle!)

 

Oddly enough the Punisher should've made the smoothest transition to the screen, moreso than any other Marvel product.

And they've (The collective they've) have had two shots at it already!

What's wrong with these people?

It's a shame he didn't have the clout to push Lionsgate around and i guess it takes a lot of guts to just up and walk away from something you're so invested in. This morning when i first read this i was bummed out but i can see now that it's a good decision for Jane if not for Punisher 2.

Man that fucking blows. He was a great Punisher. If he's so bent about how the film is being handled is it safe to assume this Punisher film will be worse than the first? Oh noes!

Wow i actually did enjoy the first one, it wasn't all it could be but it made for a decent watch. This news though has just totally killed The Punisher 2 i cant imagine anyone else playing Frank castle.

 

I've been reading the punisher for quite a while now, long before the film, but when the film did come out that was it Tom Jane just was frank castle his voice really made it, though he wasn't the build i imagined for Frankie i dont think the comic version build would look right on-screen.

 

Ray liotta might make a decent choice but he would look alot older than he should be in the film.

I was really hoping the second Punisher film would be perfect alot better than the first especially if it had a bigger budget. MAN! I am so dissapointed it feels like the film just got cancelled.

He's Nam age (Or atleast looks it).

Nam is intrinsic to the Punisher.

Intrinsic.

Unless the movie studio execs replace 'Nam with the first Gulf War....

In what kind of world would they do that? :rolleyes:

Next thing they'll remake Get Carter with Stallone or something.

Well thats what i thaught and why i put film wise hes not a good choice unless they decide to redo it all over again and have him fight in vietnam like the comics. He dosn't talk about nam so much anymore, it made him that bit more twisted like in welcome back frank.

 

Damn i hate i cant think about vietnam stuff without thinkin Defoe, who would make a shit punisher but possibly a good jigsaw, but then how would he explain being the Goblin too?

That makes me think of Tom Berenger from the same movie (Platoon) and he wouldn't be a half-bad Frank Castle. He's mean enough.

 

 

 

Ok maybe not. I'm supposed to be the resident Punisher expert. I can't just throw shit like that out.

Phew! Good to know I'm not alone in that opinion. Most people around here seem all too willing to cut that film some slack. My girlfriend and I wanted to walk out of the theatre soooo badly, but we didn't know that we both felt that way, and ended up sticking it out. Horrible, horrible film.

I could go for that. I'd like an older Frank.

It's a good call, but rewatch Narc and imagine that white skull bobbing about.

 

Trace the Punisher film was irredeemable and far worse then the Lundgren version IMHO.

Who's replacing Thomas Jane, you say? None other than Ray Stevenson, Titus Pullo from Rome.

Now that's a man who does a good job of killing lots and lots of people.

Variety confirms that Ray Stevenson (Rome, King Arthur) will star as Frank Castle in the third version of the film, which begins filming in October.

Australia just got the 2004 Punisher shown on fee to air TV, so I saw it for the first time last night. Several times I nearly walked out, and it was my own home. I don't think I've said "what the fuck?!" so many times in two hours before.

 

I sat through the whole thing, and the final insult was when the credits rolled and the obligatory screamy, heavy rock track played over them. It was like a parody of an action movie.

 

It's funny what pleases us and what doesn't. I like blaxploitation movies and Schwarzenegger's Commando because they're bad. I like The Bourne Identity and Casino Royale because they're good. I like parody too. So what was it about The Punisher that made me dislike it? Or vice versa?

Actually, moving Punisher's origin up to the first American "Gulf War" would work....

After all, that war did give us Timothy McVeigh and "Persian Gulf syndrome".

Well. it looks a fairly typical vigilante movie but it makles me want to see it at some point. Which is more than I can say for the other two versions.

 

Although that dinner table scene is straight out of Batman Year One, just with added guns.

I pretty much liked the 2004(?) Punisher movie. Then again, I was 14 at the time and I had never read a single Punisher comic book. For the general audience, it was "decent". Unlike Harry Potter movies, not knowing the source material for this movie seems to make it more enjoyable.

Too brief really to come to any kind of opinion about this film yet, what little there is in that trailer I like though.

Balthazar, did you read the comments on that video link you gave us?. I had to laugh ( IN a thoroughly angry way unfortunately) at all the pricks bemoaning the "Accent" of the bloke in the video, OH NO< AN ACTOR IN A MOVIE REPRESENTING AND AMERICAN, AND HE SOUNDS A TINY BIT ENGLISH ! ! ! OH fuck, it is the end of the world! ! ! ! !

 

If I were a rich movie director, I would be SO FUCKING TEMPTED to make every single possible movie there could be about American heros and myth-figures and the like. In which the actors would be from Yorkshire, Queensland, Ireland and anywhere else with a strong accent. :)

 

REVENGE for Robin Hood Prince of Thieves!. Not to mention the Tigger Movie.

 

:P
