No one fathomed the success of the film. Boondock Saints would see a barely stitched together movie, spewing last-minute production, turned into a cult classic. Only Willem Dafoe seemed to realize the kind of movie he was in, giving a performance that was notably eccentric and memorable. Ten years later, the saints returned with high anticipation, but fed us nothing but a dreadful Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. After butchering its cult classic name with a horrid sequel, we had hoped the franchise was long gone, but alas, we were wrong.
IFC recently caught up with Norman Reedus (Murphy MacManus) who was out doing the rounds for “The Walking Dead,” and he revealed that plans are underfoot for another ‘Boondocks’ outing. “I’m in L.A right now,” Reedus said. “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.”
As an original Boondock Saints follower, the sequel was a disappointment and a third is just flat out offensive. Now, we’re not going to knock anything down until we view it, (anything is possible), but yeah, as it stands now, it difficult for us to be excited about this one .
