Hensleigh Discusses "Punisher 2"

by | December 6, 2006 | Comments

Although "The Punisher" didn’t exactly prove to be a massive success, it’s far from one of the worst Marvel adaptations out there — but there’s a lot of room for improvement. And writer/director Jonathan Hensleigh seems more than intent on getting back out there, sequel-wise.

From Newsarama: "NRAMA: Are you still working on the sequel to The Punisher?

JH: We’ve been planning one. We’ve been working on one for about two years.

NRAMA: What’s the status on that?

JH: I think we’re going to do it. I think there’s a high likelihood that we’re going to do it. There are many issues involved in the sequel. One has been the timing between my schedule and Thomas Jane’s schedule. The major one has been the content of the script and we’ve been wrestling with script issues for two years now. In other words, normal Hollywood stuff. Once those script issues are resolved and I think they’re going to be resolved very quickly, I think we’re going to make another one.

NRAMA: Will it be done in an urban area?

JH: This will be done in an urban area and Jigsaw is the villain."
