Troy Duffy Says BOONDOCK SAINTS TV Series Could Be on the Way

     June 14, 2011


After hitting only five screens for one week in its theatrical release, The Boondock Saints has gone on to become on of the biggest cult classics around. Now after a huge fan following demanded a sequel ten years after the original, it appears more of everyone’s favorite vigilantes may be on the way to the small screen. We Got It Covered recently talked to director Troy Duffy and asked if another film sequel could be on the way. Indirectly, it sounds like that’s the plan, but the MacManus brothers will instead return in the form of a TV series. Duffy says, “We’ve been approached to do a possible Boondock Saints TV series. So the fans may be getting a part 3 as a television show. We might be able to pull that off. I actually called both Sean [Patrick Flannery] and Norman [Reedus] and they both said ‘hell yeah, we’ll drop everything.’”

Honestly, as much as I enjoy the original film, I feel like it’s a bit overrated, and I’m not entirely sure a TV series is all that necessary or exciting. I’m sure some die-hard fans will give me some flack for this, but that’s just how I feel. Of course, if the series ends up on HBO or AMC as Duffy anticipates it would need to be in order to allow the rough language and violence, then it might be worth a look.

    Well thank god this story and characters have the legs to become a long running T.V. series. Not to mention Troy Duffy’s brilliant writing and direction. What a knob! I get the first one had something about it to a degree, but its not as brilliant as everyone makes it out to be its a B movie at best. And the second one holy crap!! Anyone who says that movie is good probably thinks Ashton Kutcher is an underrated master thespian.

    Do yourself a favor Norman stick with the Walking Dead.

    This movie was ridiculously bad. Having said that it is perfect for Spike

    This is Duffy just trying to get more attention. I LOVED the first film. Enough I reached out to Troy for an interview for my local paper, which I got when he called me at random one morning back in 2003. He proceeded to feed be the same BS he’d been giving everyone prior to the release of OVERNIGHT (as droopy links to).

    BDS2 was nice to see but upon a 2nd viewing I saw how awful it truly was. It was less interesting as Duffy stuck with over the top scenes with constant racial and homophobic rants. Anyone hoping this happens, don’t hold your breath.
