As many of you know, it took a decade for director Troy Duffy to get his long-awaited sequel to the 1999 cult classic The Boondock Saints made. But, after much patience, The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day did finally get made. And if you’ve seen it, you know that it made sure to leave an intriguing door open for a possible trilogy-making movie.
While nothing has been made official yet, The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus has made sure to give fans hoping for said third movie a shiny bit of hope that they won’t have to wait nearly as long for The Boondock Saints III, saying recently that the movie is indeed happening with fellow Saint Sean Patrick Flanery and Duffy both involved.
Speaking to IFC about the season 3 premiere of The Walking Dead, Reedus said:
“I’m in L.A right now. I’m meeting with Sean [Patrick Flanery] and Troy [Duffy] tonight. I just landed a couple hours ago and tonight I’m going over to Troy’s house with Sean. It’s definitely in the works. Look for it. It’s gonna be crazy.”
No word yet on when we might see the movie or what it will be about—they likely still need to get the script Flanery confirmed was being written nice and polished before officially announcing—but if you’ve seen All Saints Day then you have a good idea where it’s likely heading.
