Troy Duffy, writer/director of The Boondock Saints and The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, has been utilizing social media lately to update and keep his fans in the loop about the long in development Boondock Saints III.
Recently revealing plot hints and a title, Duffy has now unveiled a few more plot details (heavier this time) and a name he has in mind for the main baddie in the next McManus brothers adventure.
Though mum on some specific plot details as well as keeping a villainous character under wraps, Duffy revealed that the brothers would be going after “white collar criminals” in the next installment and said, “America has pretty much had it up to here with our public officials, corrupt cops, judges and leaders so we’re going to be taking out a few of them.”

It took 10 years for The Boondock Saints to get a sequel from director Troy Duffy, and The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day wasn't really worth the wait (and didn't make much money either). In fact, the cult classic was probably just better left alone being the film that high school and college students loved, plastering posters on their walls and tattoos on their hands. But if Duffy has his way, he wants to make The Boondock Saints 3 happen, at least that's what he told some fans during a Q&A on Facebook (via Flickering Myth). The film would be called The Boondock Saints 3: Legion, referring to legions of people taking the law into their own hands and following in the footsteps of the now famous brothers from Ireland. In addition, the film will also go back in time to show the McManus brothers very first crime. Both of »

Regardless of the terrible reviews and poor box office performance, Troy Duffy's 1999 film The Boondock Saints became a cult classic. It was a fun movie that even spawned a sequel called The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. Unfortunately, the sequel didn't hit the same level of popularity as the first film, mostly because it was an inferior movie. That hasn't stopped hardcore fans from wanting to see a third film, though!
During a fan Q&A on Facebook, the director talked about his plans for a third movie, revealing the title and the plot of the film. The new movie is currently titled The Boondock Saints 3: Legion.
If you watched the sequel, then you already know that it ended with the McManus brothers, played by Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus, in prison. The Boondock Saints 3: Legion will show that while in prison they’ve gained notoriety. »

Put it this way: I’ve never heard a college kid declare the second Boondock Saints to be his […]
