Punisher decided for sequel
We heard Thomas Jane was off Punisher 2 some time ago, and in fact it sounded as though he left because he wasn't happy with the way the film was going. Now the rumour is that Ray Stevenson from the series Rome is joining as the Punisher.
There's even a rumour out about the villain that Punisher will be facing in the sequel, and that's still reported to be Jigsaw.
The rumour of Ray Stevenson comes from Latino Review who say it is from their very trusted source, so it could well be true. We'll have to wait for confirmation.
Lexi Alexander is set to direct the film, which if we think about the style of Green Street (Filmstalker review), could work out pretty well for Punisher 2.
