Apparenty, The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day wasn’t enough for the starring duo Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery. Surely director Troy Duffy, who only has the Boondock Saints films to his name, was one of the main catalysts for the idea of a trilogy-making installment.
“I’m in L.A right now,” Reedus said when asked about a third Boondock Saints movie. “I’m meeting with Sean [Patrick Flanery] and Troy [Duffy] tonight. I just landed a couple hours ago and tonight I’m going over to Troy’s house with Sean. It’s definitely in the works. Look for it. It’s gonna be crazy.”
Even while there’s no penned script, it will be difficult to contend with the starring duo along with Troy Duffy once the new Boondock Saints project gets in motion. Reedus is still soaking in the limelight from his stellar performances in The Walking Dead and will be looking to use any amount of pull that he’s gained from slinging arrows and riding Harleys.
Sean Patrick Flanery has gone on to star in a few low-budget films along with Saw 3D and even a role in soap opera The Young and the Restless. One can assume he’ll be chomping at the bit to reunite with Reedus and Duffy.
The real question may be regarding whether or not audiences need another Boondock Saints film. It seemed quite camp to even consider making a sequel to MacManus brothers story of righteous murder and execution. At best, the sequel came off as one giant inside joke. Do we really need another?
