Punisher returns when?

11.27.2007
Marvel's tenacious vigilante THE PUNISHER is returning to the big screen, with a new face and a different city of criminal goons to assault. And now we know when he'll open fire.

Lionsgate has scheduled the not-really-a-sequel PUNISHER: WAR ZONE for release on September 12, 2008. A month that used to be a dumping ground, September has turned into a popular time for genre material (the UNDERWORLD movies and RESIDENT EVIL sequels found audiences in similar positions).

The new flick comes from director Lexi Alexander (GREEN STREET HOOLIGANS) and stars ROME's Ray Stevenson as the new Frank Castle. In the movie, the New York-based Punisher is hunted by a police task force and an army of thugs led by the scarred psychopath Jigsaw (Dominic West). Doug Hutchinson, Colin Salmon, Wayne Knight, Dash Mihok and Julie Benz also star.
Extra Tidbit: The movie pulls from various Garth Ennis PUNISHER comic arcs, along with whatever the multitude of screenwriters threw into the mix.
