Moviehole is reporting unconfirmed news that The Punisher sequel might not be happening.
“The returns have been pretty disappointing. Tom Jane has won raves, so he’s going to come out of it all alright and word is, he’s already in talks to play another comic book-esque character, but he probably won’t be doing the sequel to this. It was supposed to be full-speed ahead on chapter two, but the studio realizes it’s not going to make any money so have erased it from the future flatplan. Too much money at stake”. A sequel might happen one day, says the scooper, but most likely without Jane and probably as a straight to video title.
Take this with a grain of salt for now. Thanks to ‘Jamie’ for the heads up. Meanwhile, you can check out for details on the DVD, coming September 7, by clicking here.
