It seems that Zombieland isn't the only movie shifting back into a television format sometime in the near future. Deadline is reporting that Marvel's Frank Castle character will be exacting vengeance (and justice) on the small screen, with Fox handing a put pilot commitment deal to Ed Bernero and ABC Studios for a new version of "The Punisher." This is one of two high-profile sales for Ed Bernero, with the man also recently selling a supernatural Western spec called "The Eye" to ABC.
Plot Concept: The Punisher is described as an hour-long procedural with a Marvel signature and a new take on one of the comic book giant’s iconic characters. It centers on Frank Castle, a rising star detective with the New York Police Department who moonlights as the vigilante Punisher, seeking justice for those the system has failed.
