Dahl On ‘Punisher 2’: Script Is No Good

punisher.gifThere has been a lot of talk about starting up the Punisher franchise again with a sequel and while there hasn’t been any luck finding a director, the most recent rumors suggested that John Dahl was interested. As it turns out he was and in an interview with UGO while out promoting his new movie You Kill Me he has a few things to say about it:

“I actually thought I could make a better movie. But then when I really started thinking about what it was and the fact that the studio kind of didn’t want to spend a whole lot of money, it was like “Do I want to do an action movie in 40 days? With a massive second unit?” And the script was not that good.”

This news comes only a few months after Thomas Jane dropped out to reprise his role as The Punisher. News of a poor script may not bode well with fans who were hoping to see the franchise take a much needed new direction with the sequel.
