Lionsgate has announced that the next The Punisher movie will be titled Punisher: War Zone.

The new film will be set in New York, where Castle runs up against a mobster. Ray Stevenson takes over the Castle roll from Thomas Jane.

The new project will mark the third screen incarnation for The Punisher, which originated in a comic book about Frank Castle, a Marine-turned-vigilante who is driven by a desire to avenge the murder of his family after they witness a gangland killing.
