THE PUNISHER: DIRTY LAUNDRY
Posted 14 July 2012 - 11:11 PM
After an 8-year absence from cinema, Frank Castle returns in this short unveiled at Comic-Con.
All I can say is - there IS a God.

One Nike gym bag - sixty bucks.
One Nokia cell phone - hundred bucks.

Gettin' rid of a dirty cop - Fuckin' priceless!

Jane just had this convo on Twitter/WhoSay an hour ago:
DJThis: "Some said that at SDCC you're pushing to play The Punisher in a Marvel Reboot? Can you confirm?"
Jane: "Not pushing anything. Just a fan film from friends of Frank."

Those with loaded guns, and those who dig.

Can't wait to see this! Maybe it'll inspire Marvel/Disney to give Tom a few million to do the character right for the first time.
Marvel can easily do what Burton did with the first Batman film & just make a Punisher movie where Castle is already an established vigilante. No need to do an origin film again. FOX is doing the same thing with Mangold's Wolverine film.

He was certainly full of surprises at this Comic-con... Hmmm, just wondering who on RAW here got to actually see it?
Hoping something will come out of this...since there is so much hype about it...but he says he only wanted to do it because he's a fan and that he's not pushing for anything out there... but hey, you neva know

I totally agree they need to let him do it. Let tom show them what the punisher should be. Because I think if they do let him they are really going to like what they see. The man definately knows what he is doing.
I am yet to track down any video, but I can not wait to see this. This is Tom's chance to show everyone what they could not get when he was explaining what he wanted for Punisher 2. So far, response for this has been pretty positive. I'm hoping someone at Marvel Studios is paying attention. I believe that when you get a team together that loves the character, it will come out on the screen. Look at Iron Man or Hellboy. Give Tom his due, let him show us his Punisher.

Marvel may already have other plans for Frank Castle by now. Even though they do seem to be going galactic for their films right now. Whatever the case may be, I think Tom had some unfinished business he needed to attend to with Frank. I'm dying to see this short film though. I've been a Joanou fan for years too.
The TV show isn't going forward, so maybe they'll reconsider their approach to the character.

Its amazing to me how easily Jane transforms himself into the Frank Castle persona. Just last year I was used to seeing him as nice-guy Ray Drecker yet the mere scowl in the screencap above oozes Frank Castle.
I thought the same thing! The lighting and overall quality of the image also stood out to me. Honestly, I think Tom has the potential to make Frank Castle iconic on film. He just needs the right script and director to do it! Everything I've heard about this short, it happens.

I am truly speechless.
THE DARK KNIGHT meets THE PUNISHER.
This is exactly what a Punisher movie needs to be.
Bravo, Thomas Jane. Bravo.

Amazing. Just need the other 80 minutes now.
Seconded, although I'd prefer a much warranted Nolan-esque 170-minute running time.
