I've never gotten around to seeing either Punisher films, I plan on it at some point but I remember they weren't reviewed real well. I've always been a fan of Thomas Jane though, even when he was in movies that weren't so great so I was a little disappointed when I started reading reviews for The Punisher. He apparently backed out of the sequel because of the direction it was heading in but apparently he's still really into the character.
At Comic-con this past week he debuted his short Dirty Laundry and it's pretty damn good.
“I wanted to make a fan film for a character I’ve always loved and believed in – a love letter to Frank Castle & his fans. It was an incredible experience with everyone on the project throwing in their time just for the fun of it. It’s been a blast to be a part of from start to finish — we hope the friends of Frank enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.” -Thomas Jane.
I'm not the most knowledgeable about Frank Castle but this seems pretty close to what I know. Gets pretty violent so maybe don't watch it at work. Also Ron Pearlman. What more do you need?
