No Boondock Saints 3 release date, but apparently a TV show is in the works.
The Boondock Saints is one of my favorite movies of all-time. No, it’s not the greatest of movies and can be rather cliche at times. Despite that, though, it’s just an awesomely fun movie with good dialogue and characters and just a fun time. Willem Dafoe’s Smecker character might be my favorite performance of his ever.
For fans, ever since Part 2 was released, we’ve been eagerly awaiting news about a possible third movie (that Part 2 definitely set up for). Well, now it appears we may finally get that…kinda. In an interview with We Got This Covered, Troy Duffy announced that he’s been approached about doing a Boondock Saints TV show.
Duffy stated that it’s a very likely possibility this will come to fruition and we’ll get to see more adventures of the MacManus Brothers in due time. Furthermore, he indicated that the TV series would not be a watered down version. Instead, it would be a series that ends up on a network like HBO or AMC, so this would allow for the over-the-top violence and crude language that us fans have grown accustomed to with the films.
Now, it sucks that it’s not another movie release, but I’ll definitely take more Boondock Saints any way I can get it. Duffy also stated that he called up Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus, both of whom said they were absolutely interested. Now let’s just hope he could lure Willem Dafoe back in as well, or at least Julie Benz (preferably both). Definitely would like to see other returning characters like Billy Connolly and the three stooges known as Detectives Greenly, Duffy and Dolly.
