The Punisher Sequel Might Have Been Canned!

Plans for a "Punisher" sequel may have fallen through, with insider 'Gatorade', saying the studio doesn't see it as the potentially viable franchise it did a few months back.
"The returns have been pretty disappointing. Tom Jane has won raves, so he's going to come at of it all alright and word is, he's already in talks to play another comic book-esque character, but he probably won't be doing the sequel to this. It was supposed to be full-speed ahead on chapter two, but the studio realizes it's not going to make any money so have erased it from the future flatplan. Too much money at stake".
A sequel might happen one day, says the scooper, but most likely without Jane and probably as a straight to video title.
