Punisher vs. Paddy?

100%
UPDATE: It looks like the offer to Considine has been retracted, as Lionsgate/Marvel's first choice for Jigsaw has changed their mind and accepted the part. Now we just need to hear who that is... Too bad, I would've liked to see Considine playing an all-out psycho.

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.

I'm still not sold on Stevenson as the Punisher. I'm not against t I just thought, even tho punisher wasn't that good, Tom Jane rocked. Paddy being considered does make me lean a bit more twords giving it an honest chance.

Wish they would still use, "Welcome Back Frank" instead of "Warzone." Warzone sounds cheesy to me. Welcome Back Frank is awesome because it kicked off his rebirth and it fits him. Warzone sounds like it tries to hard to say, "this movie will have killing and stuff."

green street hooligans was gnarly

I can't wait to see what they do with this incarnation of the Punisher. My only gripe with the Thomas Jane version is that it wasn't serious enough. I guess I have been spoiled by crime dramas like "Heat" or "Collateral" that I expect something as gritty as the Punisher to be just down right brutal and not campy.

Hopefully they can pull of this film with an even more serious tone whle making it entertaining enough at the same time.

Great Choice! Paddy is Awesome

If you haven't seen Dead Man's Shoes go check it out, it's not epic by any means but it's a pretty slick little independant film about revenge and murder. Paddy was incredible as the long lost older brother who comes back to town to kick the asses of a bunch of asswipes who victimized his mentally ill younger brother.
