THE BOONDOCK SAINTS 3: LEGION Will Be Made if Troy Duffy Gets His Way

Let’s hope that Troy Duffy keeps taking his time with his signature franchise since I could easily go the rest of my life without another Boondock Saints film.  I almost get the appeal of these movies in the sense that they position themselves as very much outside the PC Hollywood POV, but I think they’re garbage and I don’t think their misogynist immature hearts are in the right place at all.  But we could… could… be getting another one if Duffy has his way.

The title that he’s kicking around is The Boondock Saints 3: Legion, which apparently focusses on the McManus boys behind bars along with a cult of obtuse people outside the prison walls who take on their crime fighting mantle.  It’s also promised that the film will look at the origins of the McManii, showing us their “very first crime.”  We’ll see if he can get both Sean Patrick Flannery and Norman Reedus back this time seeing as the latter has blown up quite a bit since the last film came out in 2009.  Hit the jump for more on The Boondock Saints 3: Legion.

the-boondock-saints-3-legionDuffy has been answering questions on the Boondock Saints Facebook page (via Flickering Myth).  He speaks about the delay between the second and third films claiming:

“It’s my fault. It’s taken awhile… it’s cause I want to get it right.”

Duffy also states that he wants the film to have the same “boots on the ground” vibe as the first installment.  He doesn’t clarify if he has the funding to make the film, however.  That’s something that will be much trickier for him to obtain since the climate has shifted a lot since 2009 (not to mention the fact that the second film didn’t really set the world on fire).

I honestly don’t mind if this film does get made.  I have a few friends who enjoy the franchise and I know it would likely make them happy (even though I don’t completely understand why they like it so much) to have another one.  I just hope that I never personally have to see it.
