The Boondock Saints Image

No movie better defines the phrase “word of mouth hit” than Troy Duffy’s 1999 cult classic, The Boondock Saints. People forget just how long ago 1999 was, and no, I don’t mean numerically (16-years). In 1999 I was 17, waiting for dial up connection to get my AOL going so I could instant message my friends. My cell phone was the size of a brick, and I had a huge collection of movies… on video cassette. So when my friend Mike introduced me to The Boondock Saints, yes, on VHS, I had not heard of it on the internet, and looked it up on IMDB.com. We watched with friends and almost immediately, I was hooked. I found a copy at the video store and took it up to college with me, where I played it for everyone. By my junior year, friends were now passing along my new DVD of it and we had incorporated drinking games into it. The movie became such a phenomenon that several of my good friends have Boondock Saints tattoos, and we like to claim that we loved star Norman Reedus before it was cool… sorry Walking Dead fans.

The Boondock Saints Image

It’s been a little over a year since writer and director Troy Duffy said that The Boondock Saints 3 was still happening. Not much has transpired since then, but Duffy offered some new info recently.

In a Facebook Q&A session, Duffy shared an official title for the planned trilogy-maker, as well as some details on what the movie will be about. You can see what he had to say below, but be warned that there is a Boondock Saints II spoiler involved if you’ve not yet seen the sequel.

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.

Many apologies if the recent news that The Boondock Saints III had you buzzing with excitement, as it now looks like the movie isn’t happening anymore. At least not at the moment. My, my—how quickly things change in Hollywoodland.

Just a couple of days ago Norman Reedus, star of the first two movie and The Walking Dead, said that he was about to meet with director Troy Duffy and co-star Sean Patrick Flanery to discuss Boondock III, and he seemed pretty excited by the project.

It appears that that meeting might not have gone so well as Reedus has now shared on the Twitter that the third installment isn’t happening. Continue on to see the tweets.

As many of you know, it took a decade for director Troy Duffy to get his long-awaited sequel to the 1999 cult classic The Boondock Saints made. But, after much patience, The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day did finally get made. And if you’ve seen it, you know that it made sure to leave an intriguing door open for a possible trilogy-making movie.

While nothing has been made official yet, The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus has made sure to give fans hoping for said third movie a shiny bit of hope that they won’t have to wait nearly as long for The Boondock Saints III, saying recently that the movie is indeed happening with fellow Saint Sean Patrick Flanery and Duffy both involved.

‘The Boondock Saints’ Video Game On The Way

The Boondock Saints Video Game

They’ve done movies and they’ve done comic books, so it only makes sense that our favorite high-faith hitmen, the Boondock Saints, get their own video game.

Joystiq first caught wind of the game when it was revealed that cast and crew of the 1999 cult classic The Boondock Saints would be on hand at next month’s South by Southwest Interactive festival to make some kind of game-related announcement. Then the banner you see above was discovered on the website of Critical Mass Interactive, with word below it that they had been awarded the rights to make a Boondock Saints game by director Troy Duffy.

Boondock Saints: In Nomine PatrisBoondock Saints: In Nomine Patris
Written by Troy Duffy and J.B. Love
Art by Guus Floor
Letters by Innfusion Studios
Covers by Chris Brunner
12 Gauge Comics
Release Date: November 9, 2011
Cover Price: $19.99

Long before two Irish brothers became prayer-reciting vigilantes in south Boston, their father went on a similar crusade against the mob. Before the legend of “Il Duce,” there was the life of Noah MacManus. Fans of the cult classic film The Boondock Saints know there were a lot of unanswered questions about the man whose name wasn’t even revealed until the sequel. Though the second film answered many of those questions, the series took to a new medium shortly thereafter, with 12 Gauge Comics publishing a trilogy of comic series exploring the character’s backstory. Now, the whole story is collected in a single graphic novel for the first time in Boondock Saints: In Nomine Patris.

No matter what your personal opinion of The Boondock Saints or Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day might be, you can’t help but love and respect something like this.

USO shows are a staple in entertaining and bringing smiles to the faces of our military’s troops as they serve our country, and countless stars and celebrities have made their way to these shows over the years to do their best to keep spirits and morale as high as possible during tough times.

Now, stars of the two Saints films, Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus (who spoke to us a while back about Boondock II among other things), as well as Brian Mahoney, director Troy Duffy, and producer Chris Brinker are heading off on their own trip. Their destination: the Middle East, where they will take part in one of these USO entertainment tours, allowing them to meet many of our country’s soldiers, sign autographs, and take pictures with those who risk their lives to defend our nation.

Boondock Saints: The Lost Gig
Written by Troy Duffy & JB Love
Pencils and Cover by Toby Cypress
12-Gauge/Innfusion
Release Date: April 16, 2010

I would like to start off by saying I am a huge Boondock Saints fan. I love both movies and own both of them on Blu-Ray. I was extremely excited by the idea of more Saints in comic form, especially when I found out the first story was revolving around one of my favorite characters, Rocco.

The Lost Gig is basically set as an extra mission that Rocco and the Saints go on somewhere in the time frame of the first movie. It would actually fit in right after the saints have the rope incident but right before they go to the porn place. It definitely fits in with the characterization of the first film, especially since Troy Duffy is co-writing.

Boondock Saints: In Nomine Patris 1 & 2
Written by Troy Duffy & JB Love
Art by Guus Floor
Cover by Chris Brunner
12-Gauge/Innfusion
Price: $3.99 each
Release Date: May 26 & July 14, 2010

The second in the new line of Boondock Saints comics, In Nomine Patris, is the beginning of the secret history of Il Duce. This to me is a great way to kick off a serious stint in the comic line for the saints. It introduces all the characters and a lot about the history of their “business” without prior knowledge needed. This series does a great job in treating it like every issue can be someone’s first issue.

Basically in both issues we learn how Il Duce becomes a vigilante and why he kept it up throughout his entire life. We also learn how he got his vest and we learn it all through Connor and Murphy’s eyes. The story is great and very interesting. I really enjoyed reading it. There are a few storytelling issues here and there, but it is more of a layout issue than a script issue. It is very hard to tell where we are in the story because of the jumps between past, present, and future. Something that would help is different times of day for each setting so there would be a more distinct coloring for each one. But that is just a minor issue which is great for Troy Duffy‘s second and third comic.
