And more on the upcoming “Punisher II”


Newsarama waxed lyrical with Jonathan Hensleigh, director of “The Punisher” – for the new “Punisher : Extended Edition” DVD – who offered the atypical annual update on the long-gestating sequel.

“We’ve been planning one. We’ve been working on one for about two years”, says Hensleigh. “I think we’re going to do it. I think there’s a high likelihood that we’re going to do it. There are many issues involved in the sequel. One has been the timing between my schedule and Thomas Jane’s schedule. The major one has been the content of the script and we’ve been wrestling with script issues for two years now. In other words, normal Hollywood stuff. Once those script issues are resolved and I think they’re going to be resolved very quickly, I think we’re going to make another one.”

Hensleigh revealed that ‘Jigsaw’ will be the villain, and that the new film will be set in Manhattan.

“The storyline is original but a lot of the situations and the character Jigsaw, of course, is from the comic. But the story arc itself is original. Let me give you some insight into the script problems. The script problems, again, mostly relate to budget. Lionsgate wants a very intense urban action film but at the same time there’s not a corporate will to spend an enormous amount of money on the film nor should there be. This is a specialty film with a very rabid but smaller canvas. So what we’re trying to do is figure out a way to shoot a really intense urban action film with lots of violence and lots of intense, gritty action for a price and that involves a lot of script work. You’ve got to figure out how to do big, extravagant, action-based stuff but do it for cheap. We’re probably also going to have to shoot in a weird place.”
