Punisher Returning to Rome?
Ray Stevenson the star of the upcoming Punisher: War Zone action thriller will return in “a big-screen version of” Rome.
Ray Stevenson, star of the upcoming Punisher franchise reboot, Punisher: War Zone, is talking up the possibility of a film based on Rome, the critically-acclaimed historical drama series in which he starred.
Rome, which aired for two season on HBO, was prematurely canned by the network — a miscalculation they’ve essentially admitted. But there was no turning back as all sets were destroyed and the actors each moved on to other projects before the network realized the screw up.
Now, Stevenson tells the LA Times that he may return in a big-screen version of the defunct show. “When we started filming [the second season], we knew we were going to end,” he says. “And I think halfway through, the figures started coming out from Season 1 and they admitted they made a bit of a mistake in pulling the series. There’s rumors around that Bruno Heller may be working on a movie script version.”
For his part, Heller fessed up on the project to The Hollywood Reporter. “There is talk of doing a movie version,” he told the mag. “It’s moving along. It’s not there until it is there. I would love to round that show off.”
