Back in 2004, Thomas Jane starred in Lionsgate's The Punisher, a reboot of the popular Marvel Comics character which failed to make a dent in theaters, taking in just $33 million at the domestic box office. Eight years later, the actor is back as Frank Castle in the short film The Punsher: Dirty Laundry, that made its debut Saturday night at San Diego Comic-Con. Today we have the entire 10-minute short, that also stars Ron Perlman, and was directed by Phil Joanou. Take a look at the short, and read on for a statement by Thomas Jane about this star-studded fan film.
"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."
The Punsher: Dirty Laundry was released July 13th, 2012 and stars Thomas Jane, Ron Perlman, Sammi Rotibi, Brandee Tucker, Karlin Walker. The film is directed by Phil Joanou.
