Thomas Jane as Punisher
By Brian Jacks
Step aside, Spider-Man. Move along, X-Men. There's a badder boy on the block. And to prove it, Artisan Entertainment has released another photo of actor Thomas Jane as The Punisher.
Starring Thomas Jane in the title role, John Travolta as lead villain Howard Saint, and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos as the sexy neighbor, The Punisher tells the story of FBI undercover agent, Frank Castle, who until now has beat considerable odds. A former Special Forces operative, he is finally moving out of the field and into a desk job – and a normal life with his wife and son. Then Castle’s world is shaken to its core by a nightmare he has long feared: his family is executed as a repercussion from his final undercover assignment. With unparalleled intensity, ferocious intelligence and fearless actions, Castle seeks to punish the murderers – and finds the one thing he least expected: redemption.
Production on the film has begun in Tampa, Florida, and the film is scheduled to hit theaters in summer 2004.
