The Punisher movie

For me, The Punisher  was never on the same line with Spider-Man, the X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Daredevil, the Hulk, Batman or comic books of those character.   To me, The Punisher was nothing more than a cool supporting character that really didn't have a whole lot more to do than show up in a Spider-Man one-shot as an unfriendly ally.  It might make a better movie but I never really felt the books did anything with his character. 

My thoughts aside, someone out there thought it would be a good idea to make a movie based on this book.  One of those people would be Jonathan Hensleigh, who just signed on to write and direct THE PUNISHER.  If Hensleigh's name sounds familiar, you may have seen it attached to crap like GONE IN SIXTY SECONDS, ARMAGEDDON, and CON AIR.  The film will follow Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, whose taken to life as a ruthless vigilante seeking revenge on those who killed his family.  This film is part of the Marvel/Artisan pact to turn at least 15 properties into films or TV shows.  With all the major players gone, THE PUNISHER is about the best their going to do before they start stretching into stuff like BANSHEE: THE MOVIE.

He will break you.
