J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek actor Clifton Collins Jr. spoke to MTV recently about his work on the cult super-sequel to The Boondock Saints, Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day. Collins Jr. mentions how he was able to see a rough cut at director Troy Duffy‘s house on Saint Patrick’s Day (what I would have given to be at that party), and went on to talk about his favorite parts, when we might see the movie, and how Duffy took it to another level.
While no official word has been dropped yet, Collins Jr. admitted that he had once heard that All Saints Day would be fittingly released on the November 1st holiday of the same name, but because the film was considered so “hot” right now, it may be let loose even earlier than that, and he’s even sure it will be released theatrically. We can only hope this is true. That would mean a trailer very soon, and the movie within four to five months. Considering how long we’ve been waiting for this movie, it seems so very unlikely that it would be that easy, but if it’s really damn good, why the hell not!
Click over for some quotes. Collins does talk about a scene, so minor spoiler warning. I don’t see any reason to avoid it, though.
When asked about what the best scene in the movie is, he explained of a scene in which himself and stars Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery, Billy Connolly, and Peter Fonda are involved in a massive showdown inside a glass house.
My favorite scene would have to be the showdown with Billy Connolly and myself, Peter Fonda, Norman and Sean. There’s a big showdown in a giant glass house. It’s like an Irish ‘Enter the Dragon’ finale.
Then of course, as we’re all wondering, Clifton Collins Jr. touched on the obscene, graphic nature of the first movie and how the sequel compares!
Yeah, I do believe Troy tried to one-up himself there. I remember him bragging about [having more f-bombs]; I don’t know if he succeeded, but I know he got close…There are [a lot of curse words] in Spanish, he’ll get them in there somehow, I promise.
