Director Troy Duffy Says ‘The Boondock Saints 3′ Is Still Coming; TV Show In The Works
The Movie God   |

It took a decade for fans of the cult hit The Boondock Saints to finally get a sequel, The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day in 2009. There were many ups and downs on the road to that first sequel, so it should come as no surprise that the same thing is happening with The Boondock Saints III.

First we heard from star Sean Patrick Flanery that the trilogy-maker was being written, then his co-star Norman Reedus later said that the third installment was definitely being worked on. But something went wrong, and only a couple of days later Reedus said the movie wasn’t happening after all.

Now the man behind the movies, director Troy Duffy, is talking about the next installment, as well as the potential TV series.

Of the trilogy, Duffy assures everyone it’s still happening. Speaking to We Got This Covered, Duffy says:

“I’m still working on the third film too. I’m trying to find my way through that plot. It could start to get a little bit comic book like when you think about it. You know, these two prolific vigilante characters in prison and then they get out and have the backing of the catholic church. It could get pretty extreme.

I’m working through it though. I’m about halfway done the script. So ya, that’s definitely on the front. We’re doing a third instalment. One of the things that I’m hoping to provide fans with in the third film is a lot of answers to their questions about the brothers. The film is going to be more introspective. I don’t want to give too much away but right now I couldn’t be more pleased with how it’s turning out.”

Duffy was also sure to mention that both Flanery and Reedus are still attached to return, and that he’s hoping to get Willem Dafoe to reprise his role for the movie.

Of the possible TV series, Duffy says:

“TV show is still on the hopper here.

I’m still working on that but it’s a good question. I kind of envision a re-birth of The Boondock Saints for a new generation. With television you can go so much more in depth and tell a lot more story. I’m excited about it.”

Are you still hoping to see The Boondock Saints III happen, and would you be interested in a Boondock Saints TV series?

    A third movie is all but necessary for this franchise to either sink properly into cult fandom history or rise to it’s potential again. I phrase it like that because I personally feel the second movie was not as good as it could have been, that it tried a bit to hard to make some things funny, and that the serendipitous nature of their “sublime” acts was not illustrated as well as it was in the first movie. The concept of a television series is rather interesting, but would ride on the ending of a third movie.

  • Sere

    Yeahhhh !!! I want it ! I wanna see a Boondock saints III ! I hope it will be for soon… I cannot wait…

  • Jessie’Ca Strickland

    I can not wait for the boondocksaints 3 to come out I hope soon!!!!!

  • Nikki Douthit

    R u kidding me?! I have wet dreams about them boys, especially Murphy! I can’t wait to c what Boondock Saints III has n store for us! PLEASE HURRY!!!

  • Tim Snapp

    Hell yes on movie and tv series please. I cant wait. Us fans are begging

  • maria marrero

    I would love to see that in the making…I love the boondock saints…am a great fan

  • Mediator03

    Yes, third Boondocks please. But this can be a tough sell to the weaker religious sector since the church all but offered to financially back the brothers. Skeptics will say this is beyond tolerable to their fragile faith. But these films were never made for them. Maybe the plot line can be more of a church vs church theme where some upper echelons agree to let the boys continue and others try to put a stop to it. C’mon. We all know the Vatican runs most finances around the world. Imagine the stunt scenes and psychological mind wars that would stem from this! And if the boys could expand and hire everyday joes to help and build a new movement…man this could shake the ground our politicians stand on. So this movie needs to happen. Duffy: it’s on you. Bring it baby!

  • John Moses Browning

    Yes, YES AND HELL YES!!! Not only will I go see it at the Cinema-plex but I would watch it on TV and I will buy copies for my Library!!!

  • sami

    how will a tv show work out if Reedus is in Walking Dead?? HES A GREAT DARYL DIXON!!

  • TK

    yes…Yes….YES. Holy Shit YES!!! Can not wait!

  • Daniel

    I hear a lot of complaints about the second movie, but mostly the complaints come from casual saints watchers who might have seen the movie once, not big fans. Personally, I thought the second movie was absolutely epic. Sure, it didn’t have the SAME flair as the first, but it had a lot of flair of it’s own. Romeo is a fantastic sidekick, they could not possibly have replaced Rocco with a better character. I hope Troy doesn’t mind those who didn’t like the 2nd movie, and still makes a 3rd for those of us who did!

  • Will Stone

    Amen, Zach. The second one had its moments (“Hey, you don’t know me, do these make me look gay? Yeah, you mighta seen one up close.”) But overall it did feel contrived. I enjoyed the backstory of “Il Duce”, but I really didn’t care for Julie Benz’ character. As far as 3 goes…does Rocco make another appearance from the afterlife? With Greenbeans demise, does the Boston P.D. figure in at all? Hmmm….

  • darius renfroe

    Duffy hell yeah the 3 movies plus a show its going down in history as your greatest work your master piece I just can’t wait to witness it

  • Luis Aponte

    i would love to see a third movie ! as for the tv show if like HBO or the such picked it up that would be epic a no holds bar show is what it would need to be. i dont see it running on regular cable due to the nature of the films being so graphic but if HBO or something picked it up they could keep the violence profanity and all the shit we love and not have to sacrifice anything really. I hope it happens love the movies love the brothers love the story.

  • nathaniel

    it Has to have both Reedus and Flannery in the movie and idk if a show without them would work either i doubt it… Willem has to be in the movie as well though i think the show could make it without him it would be better if he was in it, and id like to see a comic boy like escalation and the only show id watch instead of this should they be competing is supernatural.

  • yellow

    Im a big fan of the boondock saints . i remember buying it on dvd when i was 10 and i have watched it e watched the first movie every month XD ITS TRUE. its best and love it , the thing is when i watched the boondock saints 2 . after 7minutes in to the movie I stoped watching. so bad and sad . how could you create so bad sequal . im sry about my speling im young and on ritalin. you destroyed the best of boondock whith that horrible shit. btw the fbi agent in the sequal UEEEE BAD UGLY IRRITATING SHIT ACTOR -the whole movie SHIT . BUT STILL I LOVE THE FIRST BOONDOCK SAINTS MOVIE AND I ALWAYS WILL ..

  • Jenna L

    I’d love to see there be a third movie, a agree the second wasn’t as good as May it could have been but it’s was still good. Everyone will always compare it to the first one, nothing will ever beat Boondock I. I’d like there to be a bit more back story on the brothers, not all of it but maybe flashes or something or the beginning kicked off with something epic that happened in their childhood. Fans all know that Connor and Murphy are twins, but is that ever mentioned? Honestly asking. I know it’s not in the first one.

    The idea of a TV series is interesting but with so many being over critical of the sequels, there’d be a lot of pressure on a TV series. I thnk too much would be forced. Although, a re-birth for a new generation would be cool. Maybe a TV series is if that’s done. New brothers, maybe cameos of Sean and Norman. If that’s the case, then the cast would have to make it there own.

    There could never be another Connor and Murphy MacManus like Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus

  • Jenna L

    Sean’s already said he wouldn’t do a show without Norman. Daryl would have to die for Norm to be available.

  • yellow

    if they going to make a tv serie , i asume its going to be crap like ;(. that is because the movies ( 1st movie ) was good but with the secend movie so bad and crapy – the tv serie would probly be like bad crap like the serie CSI .. if they gona make a serie please make it connectable – dont make it like one episode is about that and the next is about somthing els – i want to see more – :)

  • a gun toting mommy

    Hell yes. Bring on number 3. My daughter and i are waiting.

  • Faelyn

    oh hell yes am i wanting both! but omfg yay! im so exicted i love love LOVE norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery i jus LOVE them lol. they do such great work! woot so excited!

  • dstrickland

    Movie for sure…and im interested in seeing how a series would work out

  • anonymous

    Hurry up with it cant wait

  • Boondocha

    The Boondock saints are not saints without ROCCO!!!!

  • Beto Ecv Chaconky Ruiz Sr.

    Any true die hard fan of the brother cant wait to see another sequel to this badass franchise and a TV show would be great just hope if it does go through that it is on a network that can show the true glory of the brothers work with out being censored much

  • Nameless

    The Boondock Saints are my absolute favourite movies by far and personally the second was almost as epic as the first. Can not wait for the third. It will be amazing!

  • Lee Switzer

    Would LOVE to see the 3d and a TV series as well. We need something like this to instill a Spirit, or faith-driven sense of Truth and Justice, in the world we have now. It’s attainable.

  • Ralph Vincent

    So does anyone know when Boondock saints 3 comes out

  • dvo75

    cant wait to see boondock saints 3
