Depending on your taste in films the news that a third Boondock Saints film is in the works will either greatly excite you or leave you cold. Me? I’m definitely in the first category. The first film, released in 1999 was a sleeper hit notching up reasonable profits and a large cult following from home viewing. Anticipation for a sequel was dampened due to protracted legal issues being raised against the director Troy Duffy. When the second installment did surface some ten years after the first it was roundly panned in the press leading to a box office failure. As with the first it found it’s audience with home viewers.
Late last month actor Norman Reedus confirmed to IFC.com that he was meeting up with co-star Sean Patrick Flannery and Troy Duffy to discuss the third film. All are committed to making a third movie. No news yet on any possible filming dates, release date or casting. Given that it took ten years between one and two it may be some time off. What is certain that the Saints will be marching in with all guns blazing.
