‘Boondock Saints 2’ Plot details + Production Diary!
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Boondock SaintsIt’s been a while since Troy Duffy seemingly announced that Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day was indeed coming afterall (see Saints Rise Again with “˜Boondock’ Sequel). Many people assumed he was just talking out his ass and that it wasn’t going to happen, but there have been a couple things since then that I have to share that may or may not help you to be a little more confident in this project happening. Me, I’ve always known it would come eventually and I think this all pretty much solidifies it.

First, Troy did an interview with 106.7 WJFK in Washington, where he revealed bunches of things:

– The lawsuit that was tying everything up ended a few months ago.

– Pre-production begins in June, filming begins in August.

– Lots new guns, lots of action.

– Some story details are as follows:

The boys (Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery) and their father Il Duce (Billy Connolly) have been living in seclusion, deep in Ireland on a sheep farm, away from everything, when Il Duce’s brother comes to tell them that a priest was murdered in Boston and it was set up to look like it was done by the Saints.

The boys rush back to deal with it, while they’re supposedly ailing father stays on the farm. There’s a new character who’s kind of the Rocco character named Romeo; funny, but much more bad ass. As soon as the brothers land, they start picking off anyone who may be tied to this framing. Willem Dafoe is not in the sequel, a new FBI detective comes into play — a female with a strong southern accent. She wants to catch the Saints and is working with some of the detectives in the first movie (like Bob Marley) who, as we know, decided the Saints were good and began helping them, but they don’t think she knows this, so they need to go with that. Eventually their father comes back into play and tells them what’s going on, which sets in motion a full-on flashback of the story of Il Duce from day one.

Oh, hell freakin’ yes.

On a separate note, something you kids might not know that we find within this interview: The Dark Knight is brought up (like you’re surprised) — it turns out that Heath Ledger was one of the actors that came at Troy Duffy about being one of the brothers. Apparently this was right around when he was brand new and Duffy needed the brothers to look more alike and it was too difficult to find someone who looked like Ledger, so he wasn’t able to use him. Interesting.

To listen to the whole interview with more details on the lawsuit, fan questions, and all sorts more stuff, check it out below.

Interview Part 2

Also surfacing, the first Production Diary video — which you can watch here below. It’s short but shows the script and also includes a very talented actor who’s supposedly playing the aforementioned Romeo character, Clifton Collins Jr.

If you’re still thinking this is all just talk — I think you might want to re-approach your reasoning.

Me thinks this is for real, ladies and gentleman.



  1. I hope so.

  2. OK, well I will have to see it to believe it.
    Very curious to see if this will really happen.

  5. Well, yea, great movie, but Troy Duffy is an A-hole. Go ahead and rent “Overnight” and you’ll be less than impressed. The guy is a scumbag. You sit there and just wish he’d STFU.

  9. I really hope it’s going to happen and if so- I hope he can pull it off and not create something that falls into the category of “They should have stopped with the original”

    Thanks :)

  10. The Boondock Saints is cinematic cancer. Maybe we could have Battlefield Earth 2, Alone in the Dark 2, and House of the Dead 2, and bring about the apocalypse.
    Troy Duffy sucks, and his movie sucked.

  11. I know it’s true. I sat (lucky me) next to Norman Reedus on a flight from Burbank Airport to Las Vegas last Thanksgiving and he confirmed that the lawsuit was over and that they were indeed going to be making the 2nd movie. Yeah!!

    i am a huge boondocks fan and i have seen dozens and dozens of video’s of Troy Duffy on youtube, he seems bad-a$$. he said himself in and interview that he pretty much bs’d his way into getting willem defoe on-board and hinted he was a novice prior to Boondocks, so piss off and who gives a $%#& if you think he’s a prick, are you a totally Pussy or what? I would give my left nut to buy Troy a pint of Guiness and watch him smile while I mopped the bar floor with you. Saying that made my day!

  26. I personally love Boondock Saints, and I can’t wait for the second one.

  27. All you motherfuckers are gonna pay. You are the ones who are the ball-lickers. We’re gonna fuck your mothers while you watch and cry like little bitches. Once we get to Hollywood and find those Miramax fucks who are making that movie, we’re gonna make ’em eat our shit, then shit out our shit, then eat their shit which is made up of our shit that we made ’em eat. Then you’re all you motherfucks are next.
