‘The Boondock Saints’ Could be a Trilogy

The Boondock Saints
20th Century Fox

The saga of Troy Duffy is an interesting one. He sold his script for ‘The Boondock Saints’ to Miramax and he was pegged as the next Quentin Tarantino. But the studio pulled out of the film during pre-production, and the film was not the hot ticket item that was hoped for. ‘The Boondock Saints’ eventually came out in 2000 and was barely released. But over the years it became a cult favorite, spawning a sequel in 2009 called ‘The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day.’ And now there might be a third.

This trilogy talk comes from lead Norman Reedus, who said he’s meeting with Troy Duffy and co-star Sean Patrick Flanery to talk about making a third film. “It’s in the works,” he said, according to IFC.

This might be because the second film, which was made for $8 Million dollars, grossed $11 Million in the theaters, and – according to the New York Times - over $50 Million on home video. That’s a profit any way you cut it, and it’s not like the primary players are exactly A-list. A third ‘Boondocks’ film is likely the only movie someone like Duffy could get going, and so why not? It’s clear there’s a fanbase, even though the films provoke a love or hate reponse. We’ll keep you updated on this one.
