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

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

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.

The Boondock Saints 3 Is Happening, Get The Details

While The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day didn't exactly light up the box office when it was released back in 2009, that's apparently doing nothing to slow the production of a sequel, as star Norman Reedus is reporting that things are definitely moving forward with the making of The Boondock Saints III. Reedus spent part of his day today on Reddit for an Ask Me Anything session, and in between all of the questions about Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead the actor confirmed that there are plans in the works for a third Boondock Saints film. Asked both about whether or not The Boondock Saints III was moving forward and if there's a possibility that his co-star Sean Patrick Flannery could appear on his zombie television show, Reedus responded, "hey good morning . yeah its on. in the works , happening. sean would be great on the show he's a real

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.”

Partly representing this corrupt leadership of criminals in the movie will

Troy Duffy Still Wants to Make 'Boondock Saints 3: Legion' Happen

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

Troy Duffy Is Halfway Done Writing The Boondock Saints III, Also Working On Boondock Saints TV Show

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.

What’s Going On In This Bad Kids Go To Hell Trailer?!

Ok, so I’m not totally sure what to make of this Bad Kids Go To Hell movie just yet. We were sent the trailer via email; its got a catchy title, but is it horror? Do I post about it on the site? Or throw it under the “Beyond Fright” banner? At first glance of the following trailer, it looks like the filmmaker’s are attempting to do a modern day version of The Breakfast Club; hell they even have Judd Nelson in there in one of the adult roles. But then it looks like it takes a rather dark turn. Did they conjure up a nasty entity? Or is one of them killing the rest? Regardless, I’m not sure how to classify this flick but the press release under this video calls it The Grudge meets The Breakfast Club. So I figured it warranted a view. Check

Morning 5: Hoffman Sees Dead People, Wyatt out of 'Apes' Sequel and More 'Boondock Saints' on the Way

1.) We sent an email to Fox last night to confirm and have yet to hear back, but as of now it looks like Rupert Wyatt is out as director of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Wyatt signed on for the sequel after finding success with the franchise reboot Rise of the Planet of the Apes, but it turns out he didn't feel comfortable with meeting Fox's announced May 23, 2014 release date. It's similar to the situation with Hunger Games director Gary Ross, who didn't return for Catching Fire because of the quick turnaround between films. I'm sure Fox will name a replacement director rather quickly, while Wyatt could potentially move to Agent 13, the sci-fi project with Charlize Theron attached to star. It was picked up by Universal back in the spring. Wyatt was also at one time attached to direct Londongrad, with Michael Fassbender starring as former Kgb spy Alexander Litvinenko,

Third "Boondock Saints" On The Way

Troy Duffy's ultra violent cult fave "The Boondock Saints" and its less well-received sequel "The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day" look to be getting a follow-up.

Speaking with IFC to promote the new season of "The Walking Dead", actor Norman Reedus confirmed that another Saints movie is in early discussions.

"I’m in L.A. right now. I’m meeting with [star] Sean [Patrick Flanery] and Troy 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."

The news comes after word last year by Duffy that he'd been approached about doing a TV series version.

The Boondock Saints 3 is Happening

"The Boondock Saints" was released back in 1999, and while it was a box office flop, it eventually became a fan favorite. This is why director Troy Duffy decided to make a sequel, "The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day," but it once again failed to stir up much interest. Now comes word from "Boondock Saints" actor Norman Reedus that a third installment is being planned. "I'm in La right now. I just landed a couple hours ago and tonight I'm going over to Troy's house with Sean [Patrick Flanery]," he said. "It's definitely in the works. Look for it. It's gonna be crazy.. Reedus didn't provide any other information, but it sounds like a script has yet to be written. It also sounds like Reedus, Flanery and Duffy are all intent on making "Boondock Saints 3" happen.

The Boondock Saints III Is In The Works

/Film is reporting that The Boondock Saints III is indeed in the works, which is fantastic news!

The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day didn’t do wonders at the box office and it certainly didn’t pull in the home video numbers that its predecessor did but apparently, the film still did well enough to warrant a third entry into the beloved series.

Admittedly, The Boondock Saints is more of a cult film at this point and its appeal and the appeal of the series as a whole isn’t exactly widespread, but being the huge Boondock fan that I am, I couldn’t be happier to hear this news. The best part is is that it news comes straight from the mouth of star Norman Reedus.

In an interview with IFC to discuss The Walking Dead, Reedus had the following to say about The Boondock Saints III:
