Lionsgate has a new title for Lexi Alexander’s Punisher movie starring Ray Stevenson — Punisher: War Zone. The new film will be set in New York, where Frank Castle (Stevenson) runs up against a mobster.
The project will mark the third screen incarnation for “The Punisher,” which originated in a comic book about Castle, a Marine-turned-vigilante who is driven by a desire to avenge the murder of his family after they witness a gangland killing.
The property was turned into a 1989 film that starred Dolph Lundgren and then into a 2004 pic that starred Thomas Jane.
