After a tumultuous beginning, it looks like Boondock Saints III is a go! According to Deadline, we have confirmation that Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flannery will reunite with Director Troy Duffy For Boondock Saints 3!
What is The Boondock Saints?!
The film(s) tell the story of Irish Catholic twin brothers, Conner (Flanery) and Murphy (Reedus). Inspired by their faith and tired of the crime that has overrun their hometown streets of Boston, the twins bring their own vigilante justice.
The Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day, skips ahead about 8 years after the events of the first film. We find the brothers living in Ireland working on a farm. However, the boys are charged with the murder of a Roman Catholic priest and must travel back to Boston in order to clear their names. In the end, Conner and Murphy are in jail leaving fans to wonder what has become of them over the last decade.
The fans have loved these characters for twenty years. They use terms of endearment like ‘the Brothers’ or ‘the Boys.’ We left them in jail at the end of Boondock 2 and fans want to know what happened to them. Norman and Sean have been a driving force to keep this franchise on track and break some new ground story-wise. The fans have been waiting. They literally ask about it daily, and I am really excited to be working with Impossible Dream to make Boondock III a reality.Interview with Deadline
WHEN WILL BOONDOCK SAINTS 3 BEGIN PRODUCTION?
We can expect Production to get underway in May of 2022 (12 years after the previous film’s release). With hopes of turning the franchise into the new John Wick. Troy Duffy will direct Boondock Saints 3, as well as write the script alongside Sean Patrick Flannery. Norman Reedus will have some input as well.
“Where we’re going is, the brothers are older,” Duffy said. “They are coming out into a brand new world that is not like the one they left. They are at odds. One wants to continue, the other doesn’t. There’s a new enemy out there, not like the traditional ones they’ve faced.”Interview with Deadline
One thing is for sure, no one involved with the project wants to disappoint the fans. So, you can expect the Boondock Saints to return with a bang!
