Thomas Jane Drops Out Of The Punisher 2

The Punisher star Thomas Jane revealed to AICN that he is dropping out of the proposed Punisher sequel.

"I regretfully and painfully had to pull out of P2. I can't tell you how completely broken up I am about it," Jane wrote. "Punisher fans are already fighting an uphill battle as it is. And I've always felt a responsibility to fight that fight for them and with them so that Frank Castle gets the treatment he deserves."

While I very much hated the Punisher movie, but love the comic book character. I have a feeling that with the success of the family friendly comic book movies, the studio wanted to take the character in a more PG direction. And this is just my assumption.

Jane also wrote:

"What I won't do is spend months of my life sweating over a movie that I just don't believe in. I've always loved the Marvel guys, and wish them well. Meanwhile, I'll continue to search for a film that one day might stand with all those films that the fans have asked me to watch."
