Kevin Spacey Claims Will Likely Impact Sony's 'All the Money in the World' Promo Plans
When Bryan Singer was accused of alleged sexual abuse in April 2014, 20th Century Fox had to quickly revamp its marketing campaign for Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. The director stopped doing press and skipped the film's world premiere the following month.

Sony's TriStar is suddenly facing a similar dilemma as it gears up for the release of All the Money in the World, starring Kevin Spacey opposite Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams. Overnight, Spacey has become the latest Hollywood power broker to find himself engulfed in a sexual assault scandal, likely making it difficult for him...

Boondock Saints director to make The Blood Spoon Council

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

Toronto: Seven burning questions

  • ScreenDaily
Toronto: Seven burning questions
From The Birth Of A Nation to TWC, Screen reveals the key talking points.1. Has Toronto found an opening-night film that will get tongues wagging again?

After what might be described generously as a barren patch in the curtain-raising department since Looper kicked off proceedings in 2012, have artistic director Cameron Bailey and his team found the right weave of star power and spectacle again with the world premiere of Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven? The western remake feels relevant in today’s uncertain times, boasts stupendous action sequences and features a diverse cast led by Fuqua regular Denzel Washington alongside Lee Byung-hun, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Martin Sensmeir. It’s popcorn with a message, but will the audience agree?

2. Can The Birth Of A Nation maintain its awards momentum?

Nate Parker’s slave-revolt drama had had tongues wagging all year, but now the conversation has taken a darker turn. Back in January, Fox Searchlight

Top 50 modern movie documentaries




50 fabulous documentary films, covering hard politics through to music, money and films that never were...

Thanks to streaming services such as Netflix, we’ve never had better access to documentaries.

But with a new found glut of them comes the ever more impossible choice, what’s worth your time? Below is my pick of the 50 best modern feature length documentaries.

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

Shelf Life: The Boondock Saints

  • TheMovieBit
Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. Released in 1999, The Boondock Saints is a movie more known for its problems than anything else. The script, written by first timer Troy Duffy, was regarded as the hottest script in Hollywood, and when it was picked up by Miramax, Duffy was attached to direct, even though he had zero experience in the field. What followed, as captured in the documentary Overnight, will live on in infamy as Duffy's ego took control. He burnt every bridge he could in Hollywood, insulting and alienating producer and actor alike, resulting in the first time director becoming blacklisted in the industry. This ill will spilled over into the films release, receiving only one week in five theaters, and garnering poor reviews. But despite all these problems, The Boondock Saints

Troy Duffy tweets first page of Boondock Saints 3 script

Writer/director Troy Duffy, famous for introducing the world to the cult sensation of The Boondock Saints, tweeted out the first page to his newest script The Boondock Saints III recently.

The Boondock Saints had a long road to becoming the nationally recognized success it is today. In the late 90s, then bartender and low level rocker Troy Duffy was offered a very generous deal by Miramax and Harvey Weinstein to make his first feature film. He was to be given $300,000 for his script, a $15 million budget along with final cut and final casting decisions and Weinstein even offered to buy Duffy the bar he worked in so they could co-own it together. The wannabe filmmaker’s overnight success rocked movie news outlets everywhere.

However, it wasn’t long before the film deal fell apart and Duffy was nearly ostracized from Hollywood for his antics (shown in a rather biased

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.

Looks Like We're Going to Get a Boondock Saints 3

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.

The news of Boondock Saints 3 comes from star Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) who says it might happen. Here's what he said in an interview with IFC,

I’m meeting with Sean [Patrick Flanery] and Troy [Duffy] tonight. I just landed a couple hours ago and tonight

Because You Asked For It: ‘Boondock Saints 3′ Might Happen

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

Boondock Saints 3 Confirmed by Norman Reedus

Boondock Saints star Norman Reedus, who currently stars in The Walking Dead, confirmed in a recent interview with IFC that a third Boondock Saints is in the process of becoming a reality. Here's what he said when he was asked about the film,

I’m in L.A right now. I’m meeting with Sean [Patrick Flanery] and Troy [Duffy] tonight. I just landed a couple hours ago and tonight I’m going over to Troy’s house with Sean. It’s definitely in the works. Look for it. It’s gonna be crazy.

I've enjoyed the Boondock Saints films, but I liked the documentary based on the first film Overnight more. There's not word on if there's a script for the movie or not, but it sounds like they are getting together to discuss some ideas for it! If a third film actually ends up getting made, I'll definitely watch it. It

Norman Reedus Says a Third 'Boondock Saints' Movie is in the Works

The Boondock Saints is a polarizing film, to say the least. Dumped to only a handful of screens upon its initial release after the cataclysmic fall from grace of its arrogant director, Troy Duffy (seen chronicled in the documentary Overnight), the film managed to become a cult classic on home video and became a hit with the dorm room crowd on college campuses across the country. After ten years, Duffy was able to pull together financing for a sequel, and now one of the franchise's stars Norman Reedus tells IFC that yet another sequel is in development. But don't start lining up for opening night just yet. More details below. Here's what Reedus told IFC when asked about a potential third Boondock Saints film: I’m in L.A right now.

Those were the tear-streaked words that Weepy McCrazypants uttered as her brief and humiliating journey came to an end on Monday night’s edition of The Bachelor, but they’d have been just as apt applied to at least a half-dozen other moments during the episode.
