Many apologies if the recent news that The Boondock Saints III had you buzzing with excitement, as it now looks like the movie isn’t happening anymore. At least not at the moment. My, my—how quickly things change in Hollywoodland.
Just a couple of days ago Norman Reedus, star of the first two movie and The Walking Dead, said that he was about to meet with director Troy Duffy and co-star Sean Patrick Flanery to discuss Boondock III, and he seemed pretty excited by the project.
It appears that that meeting might not have gone so well as Reedus has now shared on the Twitter that the third installment isn’t happening. Continue on to see the tweets.
As you can see from the second tweet, it sounds like Duffy just wasn’t feeling the third movie yet. At one point the director was shaping up to do big things in the industry when it all came crashing down (see the documentary Overnight for the full story). Perhaps he simply wanted to concentrate on some other projects instead, which is completely understandable.
This also doesn’t necessarily mean a Boondock Saints III will never happen. After a project or two come and go, or if there’s trouble putting together other projects, who knows, it might just resurface.
But for now, it appears fans of the movies will have to do more of something they’ve gotten very good at doing over the years: wait patiently.
