If the name Troy Duffy rings a bell, that means you are a big fan of The Boondock Saints. Or you may just be familiar with his rise and "fall" in the documentary Overnight. Either way, his story is an interesting Hollywood story that we have heard countless times before. With The Boondock Saints and it's sequel hosting a rabid cult following, news of Duffy returning to direct a third feature will be met with a lot of excitement. Deadline reports that Duffy will be developing not »

As the SoCal summer comes to an end, we also bid adieu to the 12th Annual San Diego Film Fest. The long sun-drenched weekend brought a combination of Hollywood features, celebrity tributes, indie hits, and shorts from around the world to the lovely city-by-the-border. One of the major highlights was the fest's centerpiece tribute to Judd Apatow, which saw the writer/director/producer given the "Visionary Filmmaker" award. The audience was treated to a hilarious introduction by David Koechner and an off-the-cuff video tribute from Will Ferrell in full Ron Burgundy regalia from the set of Anchorman 2. The night also saw the "Emerging Producer" award given to Justin Nappi (Arbitrage, All is Lost) and a surprise appearance by Boondock Saints director Troy Duffy who emotionally...

In 1999, after an infamously turbulent development process that saw its script get snapped up and then cruelly jettisoned by Miramax, “The Boondock Saints,” a revenge flick about two avenging-angel Irish Catholic twins, Connor and Murphy McManus (Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus), who cut a swath of retribution through Boston’s criminal underworld, came and went in theaters in barely the blink of an eye. On the nascent digital home video format, however, it became a huge if unlikely hit. A decade later, its writer-director, Troy Duffy, got a chance to make a sequel, “Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day,” that continued the McManus brothers’ story. This week, an exclusive [ Read More ]

Troy Duffy’s 1999 low budget action film The Boondock Saints, about a set of fraternal twins who one day decide that God himself has instructed them to become vigilante killers and clean up the streets of Boston, might be one of the most divisive films of its kind. It was almost universally panned by critics when it was originally released, but has a strong following of fans who love the film and its two main characters.

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 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. »

During the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, actor Sean Patrick Flanery revealed during a panel today that a third Boondock Saints film is in development after director Troy Duffy was inspired by the recent tragedies that struck Boston. During the Boondock Saints panel at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, Flanery was asked by a fan when we can expect the long anticipated sequel to ever see the light of day. He answered emphatically saying, "After the recent tragedies hit Boston I texted (director) Troy Duffy to ask him about when he would work on the third one and he replied 'on it'." Flanery mentioned that some images were floating around tying together imagery from the Boondock Saints films after the recent bombings struck the city of Boston and it appears to have »

I’m a big fan of The Boondock Saints movies, but it seemed that a lot of other fans have been disappointed by the sequel, though. It took director Troy Duffy ten years to make it, but it’s looking like it won’t take that long to get a third film off the ground. In case you’re wondering how and why a third installment is happening, it’s because the second one actually did pretty well with home entertainment sales. The news of Boondock Saints 3 comes from star Norman Reedus, who says it might happen. Here’s what he stated in an interview with IFC: “I’m meeting with »

I'm a big fan of the first Boondock Saints movie, and the documentary that followed the making of it called Overnight. I didn't really care for the sequel though. It had some fun ridiculous moments, but in the end I was pretty disappointed, and it seemed like a lot of other fans were as well.
It took director Troy Duffy ten years to make the sequel, but it's looking like it won't take that long to get a third film off the ground. In case you're wondering how and why a sequel is happening, it's because the sequel actually did pretty well with home entertainment sales.

If there’s any proof that fate has a sense of humor, it’ll come when Boondock Saints 3 starts rolling its cameras. The first film was a sleeper hit that was so perfect in its ridiculousness and bloodshed that it was impossible for it not to earn a dedicated audience. When a sequel didn’t come, but a lawsuit against Franchise Pictures did, director Troy Duffy became something of a legend. His low budget feature had scored big with video sales, but Duffy was also used as an example of what not to do when finding Hollywood success in the documentary Overnight where he acts like a complete jackwagon to his close friends and business associates. The noise calling for a sequel was deafening, but Duffy was unable to make it happen until ten years later. Unfortunately, Boondock 2: All Saints Day was the terrible kind of ridiculous, and it alienated all but the most hardcore of »

Forty-two-year-old producer and director Chris Brinker died suddenly Friday morning, EW confirmed. According to a report, Brinker began experiencing chest pains late Thursday night. Doctors were unable to treat the extensive damage from the aortic aneurysm.
