'Tyrant' composers Mychael and Jeff Danna dish sibling rivalry on and off-screen

25 June 2015 9:27 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Brothers Mychael and Jeff Danna are two of the most prolific composers working today, with over 160 credits between them. Together, they have collaborated on such films as “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” (2009), “Lakeview Terrace” (2008), and “The Boondock Saints” (1999), and are currently working on the FX series “Tyrant.” -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders When we brought up the subject of sibling rivalry in our recent webcam chat (watch below), they couldn’t help but chuckle before giving an eloquent response. “There’s always a hint, and sometimes it boils up into an uber-hint,” admits Mychael, “but I would say it’s something we use in a positive way 98% of the time." However, he concedes, "there are competitions, but we do it to try and out-do each other. We both admire each others work, and i »

Laff Review: Crime Drama ‘Too Late’ Starring John Hawkes, Robert Forster, Crystal Reed, And Natalie Zea

12 June 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A delayed title card is a bold cinematic move, a deliberate tactic usually used to punctuate a powerhouse setpiece full of invention and intrigue (see: “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “127 Hours”). It jumps in as a provocation, as though to say, “You thought that was cool? We haven’t even shown you the opening credits yet, so strap in.” In “Too Late,” after a 15-minute single take involving a fedora-wearing Rider Strong and Dash Mihok as hiking drug dealers talking movie tropes, a stripper who drops the word “sanguine” in conversation with a gangster-turned-park ranger, and sloppily executed, Altman-esque zooms across the skyline of downtown Los Angeles, my only thought instead to it all was simply “Jesus, no.” Read More: 12 Great & Not-So-Great Debuts From Screenwriters-Turned-Directors What first-time director Dennis Hauck establishes here is a bizarro La that’s just picked up from where “Pulp Fiction” left off, and yet »

The Boondock Saints TV prequel is confirmed and Troy Duffy will write it

10 June 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Boondock Saints will get a TV prequel series.

The rights were bought by Im Global Television and the long-rumoured show will be written by Troy Duffy, who wrote and directed the 1999 movie and its 2009 sequel The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, Deadline reports.

"For years I've been obsessed with telling a real origin story with Boondock, and Im Global TV has stepped up," Duffy said.

"Television is the perfect medium to explore these controversial characters on a much deeper level and to bring Boondock Saints to a whole new audience."

Duffy will also direct the first episode of the series and be an executive producer alongside Don Carmody of Don Carmody Television, Lloyd Segan of Piller-Segan and D Matt Geller.

Original stars Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery are said to be in talks to join as co-executive producers.

In Case You Still Care About ‘The Boondock Saints,’ There Might Be A Prequel TV Series

9 June 2015 2:42 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Arriving five years after "Pulp Fiction," Troy Duffy's "The Boondock Saints" is sort of a twelve-year-old's idea of what a Quentin Tarantino movie might be like. Violent, unfunny, and immediately disposable in the way so many post-"Pulp Fiction" movies were at the time, there was enough of a cult fanbase for a sequel to be made ten years later. And it appears that someone, somewhere believes that in 2015 there are still enough people who care about "The Boondock Saints" that entertaining a prequel TV series is worth consideration. Enter Im Global Television who have snapped up the rights to 'Boondock' for a TV series that will bring Duffy back into the fold. He'll pen the thing and direct the first episode. The show will dive into the suddenly very necessary backstory of Connor and Murphy MacManus as they immigrate to South Boston and be badasses, or whatever.  Read More: So, »

The Boondock Saints TV Show in the Works with Troy Duffy Directing the First Episode

9 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It’s been over five years since The Bookdock Saints II: All Saints Day hit theaters, but writer-director Troy Duffy has been pushing to continue the series ever since and now it looks as though he might finally get his chance. There's been no word on the third film, The Boondock Saints 3: Legion, since Duffy participated in a Facebook Q&A back in December, but that might not matter anymore because Deadline is reporting that Im Global Television just scored the rights to turn The Boondock Saints into a TV show. [caption id="attachment_470047" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via The Movie Database[/caption] In case you missed the cult classic or its underwhelming sequel, the film features Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus as Connor and Murphy MacManus, fraternal twins who become vigilantes and set out to take down some of Boston’s nastiest criminals. Reedus and Flanery are both in early talks to join »

"Boondock" TV Prequel Series On The Way

8 June 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After several years trying to get another "The Boondock Saints" sequel off the ground, filmmaker Troy Duffy is taking another path with plans to write and direct a 'Boondock' TV prequel series for Im Global Television.

Duffy has written and will direct the first episode, and has already compiled a series bible which chronicles the MacManus boys’ origins as Irish immigrants in South Boston.

Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery, who played the MacManus twins in the films, will not star but may serve as co-executive producers. Duffy, Don Carmody, Lloyd Segan, and D. Matt Geller will executive produce and a show runner is being sought.

"The Boondock Saints" TV series does not yet have a network or streaming service, but producers are said to be aiming for a straight-to-series order.

There are surprise franchises and surprise franchises, and then there's The Boondock Saints. The 1999 vigilante action comedy that nobody initially saw became a cult hit on video. Then there was a straight-to-dvd sequel in 2009, and now Boondocks mastermind Troy Duffy is taking his franchise to TV. He's prepping a prequel series for Im Global TV, and will also direct the pilot.The original film saw Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery as Irish-American brothers taking on the Russian mob. Willem Dafoe played a weird FBI agent, and Billy Connolly was the berserk Il Duce: an assassin with a coat full of arsenal. Reedus, Flanery and Connolly all returned for the Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, and were joined by Peter Fonda.Reedus and Flanery are both in talks to be executive producers on the TV iteration, although it's unclear at this point if they'll also appear. “For years I »

Interview: Brian Mahoney talks The Boondock Saints and Fast & Furious 7

28 April 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zachary Leeman chats with actor Brian Mahoney about The Boondock Saints and Fast & Furious 7

Brian Mahoney. Chances are you don’t recognize that name. Should you? Probably. The man is a military veteran who has gone on to star in the cult films The Boondock Saints I and II as fan favorite character Detective Duffy and he has just come off roles in two of 2015’s big hits: Furious 7 and The Boy Next Door.

He’s not an instantly recognizable artist, but this undersung actor has to be one of the most interesting cats in movies right now. Sitting down to talk with us, Mahoney chatted about his move from the military (as an Attack Helicopter pilot, no less) to acting, his relationship with Boondock Saints fans and how he manages to have such a successful, yet quiet career.

This interview barely scratches the surface so follow Brian Mahoney »

Kill Me Three Times Review

22 March 2015 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite an off-color performance by Simon Pegg as a psychopath with a smile, Kill Me Three Times wastes a perfectly good ensemble cast on a crime caper that lacks motivation, purpose and surprise. Not only that, but Kriv Stenders’ Australian thriller begs the question on everyone’s mind – there’s really another f*cking Hemsworth brother? Wait, that’s just me? Sorry, right.

The real question on everyone’s mind is how do you waste such a charmingly devilish performance by Pegg on more of the same colorful dramatics that everyone has been attempting to recreate since Pulp Fiction? Australia may be a beautiful oasis, and Stenders sure shows off those crystal-clear Aussie beaches whenever he and cinematographer Geoffrey Simpson get a chance, but you can only dazzle an audience with shimmering blue waters and clay-toned gulches for so long.

Exclusive Cool Video: 15th Anniversary Tribute to The Boondock Saints

19 January 2015 3:52 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

This month marks the 15th Anniversary of writer/director Troy Duffy's The Boondock Saints, the runaway cult hit that's inspired everything from tattoos to t-shirts to copycat films. Itself an ode to the work of Tarantino and those before him, The Boondock Saints was a very troubled production with Duffy seeming to crumble under his own hubris in his rise from a bartender-cum-filmmaker. Starring Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus, Willem Dafoe, and Billy Connolly, the film is »
