Director Lexi Alexander (“Green Street Hooligans”) has used her official site to announce three new actors joining the cast of “Punisher: War Zone.”
Dash Mihok (“Hollywoodland,” “Basic”) will play Detective Detective Martin Soap, Colin Salmon (“Resident Evil,” “Tomorrow Never Dies”) is Agent Paul Budiansky and Doug Hutchison (“The Green Mile,” “The X-Files”) will be Loony Bin Jim.
Alexander says “There are not a lot of directors in the process of making a studio action film who can say that they don’t have at least one bad actor somebody made them cast. I can say that. Still. (Knocking on every piece of wood as I speak). I have the best cast on the planet. The movie Gods were watching over me.”
She also confirms that the villain Jigsaw has been cast but hasn’t announced it yet. A 2008 release is planned for the film with Ray Stevenson cast in the title role.
