'The Punisher''s Thomas Jane Makes a Fan Film
What do you do if you've played the lead role in a panned superhero movie? You give it another shot...this time on your own terms. "The Punisher: Dirty Laundry" is a 10-minute short that stars Thomas Jane (who played the character in the 2004 version of the film) who calls it a "love letter" to fans of the character.
Says Short of the Week, "'Dirty Laundry' is interesting for a variety of reasons. For one, it proves that fan films aren’t just for crazed geeks running around with their home video cameras anymore. Jane’s involvement shows that mega Hollywood actors are getting into the game as well. The internet levels the playing field–fanboy and heartthrob alike now have equal opportunity to create and distribute content directly to a desired fanbase. Who needs a three picture deal when you have millions of views in a couple of hours?"
