‘Boondock Saints’ Director Troy Duffy Breaks His Silence On ‘Overnight’

Overnight

The documentary Overnight is a film that follows Troy Duffy, a former bartender who became an overnight Hollywood sensation when his script The Boondock Saints caught everyone’s eyes and delivered him a deal with Harvey Weinstein and Miramax Films, and a $15 Million budget to make his movie. Film makers Tony Montana and Mark Brian Smith followed Duffy and his friends and family as they reached the highest of highs with the movie deal and a music deal, and then lost them both as Troy seemingly refused to kiss the system’s feet.

The movie painted the man in an interesting light. As you can plainly tell, a large amount of people flat-out decided that he was an ass and that they hated him based solely on this movie, and something never felt quite right about it. Because of that, I’ve personally always been interested to hear what Troy himself thought about it all, and now we know thanks to an interview that he did with /Film‘s David Chen.

Click over for direct quotes from Troy Duffy as well as the the studio and film makers behind the documentary.

Scream

The Weinstein Company hasn’t had the greatest luck in the world (award winners: yes; money winners: not so much), so the brothers, Bob and Harvey Weinstein, are retracting back to what brought them so much success through Dimension Films (who came with them after they left Miramax): genre movies. While sharing their plans for the future, a basic update on Scream 4 was offered, and it included a one Neve Campbell.

It was announced a couple months ago that a new Scream trilogy was being developed, and already has original writer Kevin Williamson working on the script, and both David Arquette and Courteney Cox set to return. The unknown cards to the franchise reboot were whether star Neve Campbell and director Wes Craven would come back. Reports indicated that Craven was still unsure and waiting to read the script before he decides, and Campbell actually came right out and said that she would not be doing it.

FanboysCinematical has premiered a new poster for the forever-in-limbo comedy Fanboys. Check it out out at right and click for large view.

This latest poster is a take-off of the Judd Apatow comedy The 40-Year-Old Virgin, which is a very different marketing angle than the original Return of the Jedi-inspired one-sheet (see it here).

I think we’re at the point now where it’s safe to say that The Weinstein Company truly does not know what to do with this movie.

“Recently, studio head Harvey Weinstein told the LA Times that Fanboys has been moved to January 2009 so that it can be involved in a major promotion and large advertising tie-in with Comcast. This was a film that was supposed to be released early 2007, then got moved to August 2007, then was held in limbo after reports surfaced that a major plot point was removed. So, if it will actually be released in January — typically a death warrant for most films, except Cloverfield — remains to be seen.
