‘Boondock Saints 2’ Officially Begins Filming
The Movie God   |  @   |  

BoondockAfter the long, long decade of rumors, combined with many refusals to believe it was true, as well as my consistent coverage of this project all year, the massively desired sequel Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day has officially begun filming in Toronto.

Take that naysayers!

As a big fan of the original flick, I’m happy to see actual filming taking place and it’s very good to see Sean Patrick Flanery eating some food and being silly. At the same time, though, I’m still pretty antsy to see some images and footage of familiar faces back in action.

As I’ve previously reported, Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus ( are returning for this film as the McManus brothers. Billy Connolly, David Della Rocco, and Brian Mahoney will also reprise their roles, while Aaron Berg has joined the cast as JoJo Rhama as has Clifton Collins Jr. as a new character.

Below are a couple new production diaries to check out.

On a side note, director Troy Duffy and crew are also doing a little contest where you can win some sweet gold and a trip to the land of Tim Hortons for a small role in the flick. Check out this link for info and watch the video below to get in and see the goods. A very, very cool contest.



  1. OMG no way dude that is going to totally ROCK!

  3. “Billy Connolly, David Della Rocco, and Brian Mahoney will also reprise their roles.”

    How does a person who dies in the first movie(Rocco) reprise his role in a sequel?

  4. WAIT.

    Comment by TonyRockyHorror — October 27, 2008 @ 4:04 pm

  5. WAIT. how the hell is David Della Rocco going to reprise his role? Is he coming back as a zombie?

    Comment by TonyRockyHorror — October 27, 2008 @ 4:05 pm

  7. “Rocco is actually coming back in a dream sequence, so you will see Roc.”


    Comment by Alex — October 27, 2008 @ 5:25 pm

  8. Rocco? Rocco!? ROCCO!?


    …Is this gonna be some flashback thing, or did he survive, or what?

    I mean, I like him, it’ll be cool to see him again, but how the hell are they gonna explain that?

    Comment by Kent Weirdo — October 27, 2008 @ 6:17 pm

  9. This is the best news ever. Good to see Rocco come back also.

    Comment by Mr. Little — October 27, 2008 @ 10:53 pm

  10. Officially the most overrated movie ever. I’m sorry kids, but it was an entertaining watch, but not much more than The Transporter or The Professional for that matter.

    If being a D&D kid is sad, being a Boondock Saints fan is pathetic.

    Comment by Josh — October 27, 2008 @ 11:37 pm

  11. The Professional was a way better movie Josh. I agree – the original is totally OVERRATED!

    Comment by Mr. Stone — October 28, 2008 @ 4:17 pm

  12. Yes, yes, yes this is going to be fucking great.

    And shepherds we shall be. For thee,
    my Lord, for thee. Power hath
    descended forth from thy hand that
    our feet may swiftly carry out thy
    command. So we shall flow a river
    forth to thee and teeming with souls
    shall it ever be. E nomini patri, et
    Fili e spiritu sancti.

  13. @Josh

    You’re totally right. People should be ashamed of the movies they like and the hobbies they enjoyed as children. Fuck individuality. RIGHT ON! I’m so glad you took the time to write a comment like that on a website called… uh… GEEKS OF DOOM.

    Way to go, buddy.

    Comment by NeverWanderer — November 2, 2008 @ 4:26 am

  16. I’m so excited! I wish i could meet Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus! This movie has made me realize that I’m moving to Ireland as soon as I can.

    Comment by Tosh — March 14, 2009 @ 10:36 pm

  30. how can you do that its gonna suck you cant make another with the same emotion as the first making another is like turning something great into a bad superhero movie like spiderman why cant they leave it alone as the first movie there is no rightful second the first should be revered as a great cult clasic like pulp fiction resivoir dogs or lock stock and two smoking barrels they are going to ruin a great and timeless film

    Comment by jason — March 17, 2009 @ 8:30 pm

  31. and i dont want to hear about ” oh you have no idea what you are talking about” belive me i do i was a boondock saints fan when it was first released how long have you teenage saps been fans what since some one in your highschool hallway way was like “OMG you have to check this movie out it is so totally awsome” please give me a break

    Comment by jason — March 17, 2009 @ 8:35 pm

  32. Maybe rocco didnt die, they were praying over him, but that doesnt ecatly say he’s dead..or maybe he’s just in a flashback, damn people, this is the attitude that cause great movies not to have a sequel. Not every sequel sucked.

    Comment by shaka — March 19, 2009 @ 2:28 pm

  33. josh is gay by the way yes the perfessional was a great movie in fact its my number two but your still gay

    Comment by jason — March 24, 2009 @ 10:27 pm

  34. wait how can David Della Rocco be in this as well if his character died in the first movie?

    I loved the first movie too, but let’s be real, he can’t be in the second one unless it’s a prequel or somethin, but that wouldn’t make sense either,

    Comment by nkklllll — April 5, 2009 @ 11:14 pm

  35. when is it due out???

    Comment by bex — May 11, 2009 @ 10:55 am

    Comment by Duncan — May 23, 2009 @ 1:07 pm

  37. I killed your cat you drunky bitch!


    I thought it would bring closure to our relationship!

    Even if it’s in a dream sequence. I’m glad rocco will be back.

    Comment by Klontius — May 28, 2009 @ 9:17 am

    “No! Fuck you! You start getting excited!”

    Comment by Jonny — September 4, 2009 @ 10:34 am

  42. Does the cat Rocco shot come back too? I loved Rocco the most out of all of them, but the least they could do is say how the hell this is supposed to happen.

    Comment by Jim — September 4, 2009 @ 12:46 pm

  43. I am really excited to see this movie!! I fell for the first immediately . I thing its one of the great indie films Ive seen. I actually get tired of mainstream movies. This was a refreshing concept as well…like “death wish …look out …the saints have come to town and and are really getting the job done. ” they have god on their side. I like vigilante movies and the religious aspect of it really piqued my interest. Finding out how these movies came about in Troys head made me appreciate more than just the comedic aspect of them but also the inner message. The comedy , religion, and justice deleved out I find a wonderfully curious mix. The cast are awesome. I will be horribly unhappy not to see William Defoe not in No.2 I love his character he really set the stage along with the brothers. I have watched sean patrick flannery since he was on the soaps years ago. He was fine then and hes still fine. Yes he looks at little different but we all get older. LOL I think it was said that the Rocco thing was to be more like a dream sequence rather than a flashback positive. rocco rocks for sure!!! Ohh to be that crazy!! Death to all cats!!!haha well I need to can it Ive said to much enjoy the movie when you see it

    Comment by shes2spooky — September 24, 2009 @ 9:45 pm

  44. Im officially a boondock saints recruiter. I saw it for the first time in 2008 and have let all my friends borrow the dvd to watch it themselves. We are all anxiously awaiting All Saints Days arrival at the the theatres. The trailer looks interesting but the movie itself is what I’m counting down to now.

    Comment by Londa — September 28, 2009 @ 2:41 am

  45. have some faith. troy duffy was in charge of this and he def wouldn’t want to ruin the legacy of his first film. he is simply giving back to all those fans who have anxiously been awaiting this moment for TEN YEARS now! fuck off and enjoy the storyline. who cares if it ruins a cult classic. its giving the fans what they want, and i personally believe that he will give the fans what they deserve. as for the nay sayers……you have no taste, and you are probably ass holes.

    Comment by josh — November 29, 2009 @ 12:32 am

  46. ps the other josh that said being a bds fan is pathetic probably has no friends, and is most likely reading this, drinking a diet coke, chomping an extra cheese pizza, and wondering why that semi, to unattractive girl just told him she has a headache tonight. AND… he is probably wandering how i know exactly what is going on in his life. don’t hold the fact that he has no taste against him…out country has enough suicides…he has enough to figure out. enjoy the movie

    Comment by josh — November 29, 2009 @ 12:42 am

  47. NO WAY!! Dude that’s totally awesome! I can’t wait!!! :)
