New Director and Lead for Punisher 2
A female director and a Roman warrior...
If you saw the film Hooligans (a.k.a. Green Street Hooligans) then you're already familiar with Ms. Alexander's work. And if you were a big fan of HBO's Rome mini-series, then you've already met the new Punisher.
According to Latino Review, the lead actor on The Punisher 2 will be Ray Stevenson, who played Titus Pullo on the HBO series (which I really need to put into my Netflix queue already). Movie fans may remember Mr. Stevenson from his performance in Antoine Fuqua's King Arthur ... but all I remember about that movie is the nifty ice sequence and Keira Knightley painted blue.
No word yet on when Punisher 2 is getting started, but with a director and a lead on board, it should be rolling soon. And I think we're all still assuming this is a direct-to-video sequel, right?
