Hensleigh Talks "Punisher" Sequel

Posted: December 3rd, 2006 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Hensleigh Talks "Punisher" SequelSubmit Comment
Newsarama spoke with Jonathan Hensleigh, director of the 2004 version of "The Punisher" about a sequel. While many things were discussed, Hensleigh mentioned that the likelihood is high that the sequel will be made. Apparently there are many issues, including timing between Hensleigh's and Thomas Jane's schedules. Another issue is the content of the script, which has been wrestled over for two years now. With these speed bumps cleared up, he truly believes that another "Punisher" film is coming.

Here is a clip from the interview...

NRAMA: Are you taking any specific storylines from comics or are you starting fresh?

JH: 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.

NRAMA: Right, but at least it'll be an urban weird place.

JH: Yeah, exactly. But remember, the city of Tampa is urban. So it's not like we didn't shoot the original in an urban place. We did shoot it in an urban place. It's just a place that didn't look anything remotely like Manhattan. We are going to set this next film in Manhattan. But we can't shoot in Manhattan. It's just too expensive. So we're going to have to fake Manhattan but we'll do it really well and that takes time and planning. But it's set in New York. That's set in stone. That will never change.
