Today I had the pleasure of sitting down with director Troy Duffy to discuss the upcoming Blu-Ray release of the director’s cut of his film The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. While talking with him, I snuck in a question about the future of the series and asked if we’ll ever see The Boondock Saints III. Duffy confirmed that he is currently writing the script and also hopes to do a Boondock Saints TV show.
Check out his exact quote below:
“TV show is still on the hopper here. 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 also confirmed that Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery are set to return, obviously, and he also hopes to bring Willem Dafoe back.
I then asked him about the TV show and how that would fit into The Boondock Saints universe. Check out what he said below:
“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.”
We’ll have the full interview for you next week but that’s what Troy Duffy had to say on the future of the beloved Boondock Saints. As a huge fan of the series, I am most definitely excited to see what’s coming our way.
