Paddy Considine Is Not Starring in Punisher 2

by | September 17, 2007 | Comments

Paddy Considine is up for the role of the villain in The Punisher: War Zone. Oh, wait — no, he isn’t.

In one of the more entertaining non-O.J. stories developing over the weekend, Considine popped in over at his official site to let fans know he was being offered the chance to play deformed mobster Jigsaw in next year’s sequel/not-a-sequel to 2004’s The Punisher. But Considine’s announcement — part of a larger discussion at his forum regarding whether or not he’d “sold out” by appearing in The Bourne Ultimatum — was quickly followed by another one:

It all means jack anyway. The original choice for Jigsaw dropped out, then they offered it to me…then whoever is responsible said that their original choice has decided to do it, therefore pulling my offer. The only blessing was that I didn’t waste an hour of my life reading the script. That be the way of the film world. And for the record, I thought Green Street was a gigantic mess. Lucky escape.

Green Street is a 2005 Elijah Wood drama helmed by Punisher: War Zone director Lexi Alexander, so Considine’s comment about it being a “gigantic mess” can be read as the equivalent of a parting “yeah, well, I never liked you anyway.” (Then again, the critics basically agree with Considine; the film currently stands at 46 percent on the Tomatometer.)

No word on who Lionsgate’s first choice for Jigsaw might be. Punisher: War Zone is currently slated for a release sometime next year.
