The Boondock Saints III Is A Possibility

The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day wasn't exactly something anybody would call a "hit." Though it was made on a small $8 million budget, it was only shown in 524 theaters at its peak and never rose above 12th in the box office rankings. By the end of its run it only managed to make $10 million and domestically and less than $500,000 internationally (and let's not forget that critics tore it apart). And yet for some reason it looks like we're getting a third movie.

IFC recently spoke with Norman Reedus over the phone in anticipation of the upcoming season of The Walking Dead and the actor revealed to them that he is about to meet with both co-star Sean Patrick Flanery and writer/director Troy Duffy about the possibility of a third Boondock Saints movie. "I’m in L.A right now," Reedus said. "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."

The original Boondock Saints was released in 1999 and starred Flanery and Reedus as Connor and Murphy MacManus, two Irish brothers living in Boston who decide to take the law into their own hands and rid of the streets of crime one bullet at a time. Despite being eviscerated by critics, the film went on to amass a cult following that resulted in the aforementioned sequel that came out ten years later.
