According to Norman Reedus, The MacManus Brothers are reuniting for a third Boondock Saints film

Sep. 14, 2012by: Niki Stephens

There is definitely a divide when it comes to THE BOONDOCK SAINTS. You have your diehards who have given the film its cult following, and you have those who think the movie is a ridiculous piece of crap. While I am not a diehard, I did enjoy the first film and the sequel was just okay.

Those of you who are fans of the MacManus Brothers might be interested in a tidbit of info that Norman Reedus shared with IFC during an interview for the third season of THE WALKING DEAD.

Here's what he had to say:

“I’m in L.A right now,” Reedus said when asked about a third “Boondock Saints” movie. “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 band is getting back together, and let's hope that something "crazy" will come out of it. I'll be interested in seeing what the three come up with for a third installment. It's definitely a nice treat for those who may not have been as impressed with the sequel.

We will have more as it develops! So stay tuned!

Hey, I like the 1st one. It's entertaining enough! But the 2nd one is a complete joke! The writing from the 1st one vs the 2nd one is night and day! The 2nd one seems like a 14 or 15 year old wrote it! You can tell Duffy had to have help on the 1st one.. Troy Duffy is a hack writer/ director! Awful awful film maker! Let someone else make this film! Someone that will do agood job. The 2nd film is a really REALLY poor written. Acted, directed, mess of a movie! Give it up Troy Duffy! You suck!

I liked the first for what it was: a shoot-em-up actioner that was riding the wave of 90's Tarantino knock-offs. If it weren't for Reedus, Flanery and Connolly, the movie would have been a complete wank, but the three manage to have such a good time with the material that they (mostly) make up for (some of) the faults. I didn't bother with the second, as I heard it was made primarily for the hardcore fans, and I can't fault them if that's the reason why a third is in the works.

Having said that, I found the documentary "Overnight," to be more fascinating than the film itself. Yes, it's a pretty one-sided take on the whole affair, but damn if it isn't a compelling watch.

Don't Get The Hate

This is one of those movies where I am totally baffled at all the hate it gets. I like to think I have pretty good taste in movies, especially cult movies. Blade Runner, Big Lebowski, True Romance, Riddick, etc. Most of the time on this site, I agree with the majority. I admit the sequel to this movie fell a little flat, but the original was off the charts AWESOME! I feel like I'm in the twilight zone and everything is backwards. Which episode am I talking about? I know,... they were all like

I don't think ppl are really hating as much on the first at all dude.. But c'mon the 2nd fell a little flat? Dude! If u consider yourself to love cinema/ cult cinema then u should understand the difference between good writing, vs someone that can't write at all! It's the reason you'll never see Troy Duffy make anything outside of these films! Nobody who has any say on anything in Hollywood is gonna say, " hey maybe we can get Troy Duffy to make this film!" he sucks. The guy went to comic con

He just stood out front smoking ciggaretts all day waiting for ppl to notice him.. And not many did

The fact that quite a bunch of people hate everything Boondock-related is very understandable to me.
The first time I saw it was when I was 15 or so, and I thought it was a masterpiece. Several years later when I sat down to watch it again, I expected a masterpiece, but of course I was bitterly disappointed. Then a year or two later I decided to give it a third go with way lower expectations and the realisation that this is a B-movie and I loved it again. Not so much as the first time around

Shit, I even like the sequel because, like, say Crank 2, it pulls the same shtick but with even more gusto.

Fuck it, top this ridiculous shit off with a trilogy but they mustn't forget to make it fun. When these types of movies get serious that's when watching them feels a toilet bowl just fell on your head.

i'm alright with this

I love the first one, i do enjoy the pulpy style and thedirecting. The second one was ok. I'd be willing to see a third movie but i'm not on the edge of my seat waiting. It seems like these guys have fun making these movies. And when friends get together to do something they love doing together, who are we to tell them no. Its not loosing any money for a major studio, or tarnishing anybodies career or franchise, so whats the big deal if they make another. The first 2 movies didnt even get wide

The first 2 movies didnt even get wide releases and we werent bombarded with an ad campaign (maybe a small internet one with the sequel). But again, if friends wanna make a movie, why the hell not.

(also, i was just recommending my friend watch the first movie last night, she just finished downloading it)

Love it or hate it

It makes sense. The 2nd one did make back its budget. I did enjoy how it was more humorous as it was making fun at the first movie for being 'too serious'. I somewhat enjoyed the 2nd one, even saw it in theaters, and I would be open to a third. I do want a third only because the ending of the 2nd made it interesting and could make the 3rd one batshit crazy insance. Whatever...everyone hating on this movie has a movie they like that most hate. Whatever...it doesn't hurt me.

First Good, Bad Worse Than Terrible

The first one was a fairy tale story of a normal guy with a vision for his dream movie- a cheesy overly-self-serious action movie with lots one liners and goofy characters, etc. I loved the first one. I truly believe the toilet break-out scene is in a 'best of all time' category. Boondocks 2 on the other hand? Smelliest piece of shit sequel ever released in theaters featuring the original cast. Horrid film making. Fuck that movie. I'm very apprehensive as to the prospects of a third movie.

EXCELLENT!

Can't wait! Bring on the 3rd film! Love the Saints, love the sequel and can't wait to see the third film. It can't arrive soon enough. You're welcome to hate all you want - I am firmly entrenched with the side that thinks these films are a ton of fun and will be waiting eagerly to see a third!

"The Boondock Saints II" is the worst film I've ever seen released by a mainstream studio. It is everything I hate about movies. The first one was only marginally better.

Second movie was really bad. I love Julie Benz, but her character in the second was terrible. If they can bring back the intensity that was introduced by the first film, then I will gladly buy a movie ticket.

I'll check it out.

I guess you could I am one of those "diehards" of the first film. I love it. The second movie was disappointing. While everything with the Saints was awesome, not to mention the awesome addition of Clifton Collins Jr., I couldn't stand Judd Nelson or Julie Benz. Regardless, I'll check out a third film if it gets made.
