Punisher vs. Paddy?
The next PUNISHER movie is getting a new Frank Castle (ROME's Ray Stevenson), a new director (GREEN STREET HOOLIGANS' Lexi Alexander), a new locale (New York's mean streets) and a new villain (Jigsaw).
And Brit actor Paddy Considine is reportedly in the sights for the part of Punisher's new nemesis, a scar-faced crimelord who tries to build an army of thugs to deal with the skull-shirted vigilante. It seems that Considine, last seen briefly bolting through THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM, has been offered the adversarial role and is currently considering.The Marvel movie (not really a sequel) gets rolling in November, so if Considine opts out, a new baddie will need to be found fairly quickly. Considine was also recently seen sporting fine facial fur in HOT FUZZ and distributing brutal vengeance in DEAD MAN'S SHOES.
|Extra Tidbit:||Considine's name was once supposedly in the mix for Rorschach in WATCHMEN.|
