Action News: Title and Plot revealed for ‘The Boondock Saints 3’
The Boondock Saints was a cult-hit movie that has already spawned one sequel and given us a plethora of quotes to make us seem cool in conversation. Writer/Director Troy Duffy may have blown his metaphorical load on the original and made the not so great sequel years later when fewer people cared about it, but we’re now living in the age of the reboot/remake and it’s pretty surprising that this one is getting a second look instead of the usual restart button. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy that all these years later we’ll finally be getting an end to the trilogy, if that is the plan. I’d say that the rise of Norman Reedus in The Walking Dead has a considerable amount to do with the progression of this movie since I don’t remember hearing too much about it after he sucked it up in Blade 2. But I have to admit that I watched the original about 300 times in college and I’m pumped to see a little movement on another.
Duffy has recently taken to Facebook and revealed the title as The Boondock Saints 3: Legion. It apparently will start with the McManus Brothers locked away in prison but follow the legions of fans who have taken up the vigilantism started by the brothers in the first couple movies. It’s exciting to me to see progress on this film as I dig the fact that this series is Troy Duffy’s baby and he’ll do his best to make it right. He has taken the blame for the long wait saying: “It’s my fault. It’s taken awhile…it’s cause I want to get it right.” Yes Troy, we want you to get it right too.
