Boondock Saints director Troy Duffy to helm The Blood Spoon Council

1 July 2017 3:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Boondock Saints director Troy Duffy has signed on to helm the thriller The Blood Spoon Council, his first film since 2009’s The Bookdock Saints II: All Saints Day.

The film will follow a vigilante group known as The Blood Spoon Council, who hunt down and execute serial killers. The FBI commissions a young, rogue profiler to get into the head of the group’s elusive leader. But their investigation is derailed when the whiz kid engages in a secret game of cat-and-mouse with a mastermind the likes of which he’s never seen.

“I want to create an action packed psychological thriller with Blood Spoon and I have held nothing back,” states Duffy. “All the killers and their crimes are inspired by actual serial cases. The mastermind of the Council is a one-of-a-kind character that will take a one-of-a-kind talent to portray him. The Blood Spoon Council may be »

Boondock Saints director to make The Blood Spoon Council

28 June 2017 12:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Simon Brew Jun 29, 2017

Troy Duffy, creator of the cult favourite The Boondock Saints, is set to direct The Blood Spoon Council.

The Boondock Saints, the schlocky revenge-fueled 1999 action/crime drama, was a film liked by many fans, less so by critics. It also gained particular notoriety for the excellent documentary Overnight, which is well, well worth seeking out. For a glimpse behind the scenes of putting a film together, it's a must-see.

Writer/director Troy Duffy, hasn’t exactly maintained the most prolific directorial CV, with The Boondock Saints and its 2009 sequel The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day being his only produced credits. However, a behind-the-camera comeback is imminent.

According to ScreenDaily, Troy Duffy is about to dust off his director’s chair to helm a new movie – specifically one that’s not connected to The Boondock Saints. Joined by producer Scott Clayton of Oceanside Media, Duffy »

‘The Boondock Saints’ Director Troy Duffy To Helm ‘The Blood Spoon Council’

28 June 2017 9:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When Troy Duffy arrived in 1999 with his directorial debut “The Boondock Saints,” he was arguably behind the times. The preceding years had seen countless imitators follow in the footsteps of Quentin Tarantino, with violent, dialogue heavy genre movies, but against all odds, Duffy managed to succeed. “The Boondock Saints” isn’t actually any good — it’s crass, dumb, and fairly forgettable — but it managed to find an audience and even prompted a way too late sequel in 2009, “The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day,” also from Duffy.

Newswire: Who wants to drop $600 on a box set of the Boondock Saints TV show?

27 April 2017 5:27 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Troy Duffy’s The Boondock Saints remains a cult classic for a very particular breed of cult (i.e., people who liked the trench-coated, flat-affect violence of The Matrix, but don’t think it contained enough gratuitous nudity), which is presumably why there’s still a TV version of the film in the works. Now, fans of Duffy’s particular brand of vigilante justice can put (a lot of) their money where their filthy, Latin-spouting mouths are, with the Boondock Saints: Origins prequel show offering an advance release box set for the low, low price of $600.

The Boondock Saints: Origins Coming To Television

27 April 2017 2:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Boondock Saints may not be the most instantly recognizable film out there, but it’s got a very loyal following and for good reason. Fans will know full well just what an enjoyable, wild, Tarantino-esque, action romp it is, but unfortunately, critics didn’t quite see things the same way, as they panned it upon release. In the years since, though, it’s gone on to become a firm cult classic and even spawned a sequel in 2009. Admittedly, the second outing was a far cry from the first, but it had its moments and ever since, people have been crying out for another tale featuring vigilante twin brothers Connor (Sean Patrick Flanery) and Murphy MacManus (Norman Reedus).

While another feature film is what fans want to see most, it looks like they’re going to have to settle for a small screen take on the story, as original director »

Willem Dafoe joins the cast of Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express

6 January 2017 12:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

John Wick and The Grand Budapest Hotel actor Willem Dafoe has become the latest addition to the all-star cast of this year’s Murder on the Orient Express.

The news about the Kenneth Branagh-directed film adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic 1934 murder-mystery novel comes from Deadline, who claims that Dafoe will play Gerhard Hardman, an undercover detective.

Dafoe has pulled off the amazing feat of remaining relevant in Hollywood for the past 30 years, starring in an eclectic mix of films and never failing to deliver a memorable performance. Between Platoon, The Boondock Saints, Spider-Man, Finding Dory and much more, he takes risks and is better for constantly moving outside of his comfort zone as an actor.

In the future, he can be seen in Yimou Zhang’s The Great Wall, Adam Wingard’s Death Note and the Dceu’s Justice League and Aquaman.

On top of directing, Branagh will »
