Ray “The Punisher” Stevenson Opens The Book Of Eli

Ray Stevenson has joined Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman and Mila Kunis in “Book of Eli”.

Allen and Albert Hughes will direct the pic, which begins shooting in February.

Stevenson will play an enforcer dispatched to kill Eli (Washington) as he fights his way across the American wasteland, protecting a sacred book that may hold the key to saving humanity.

Stevenson recently took over the Frank Castle/Punisher role in the Marvel Comics transfer after starring in the HBO drama “Rome.” He has just completed work on the Paul Weitz-directed “Cirque du Freak”.
