Boondock Saints director Troy Duffy has lined up his next film and a TV series

12.10.2013

If the name Troy Duffy rings a bell, that means you are a big fan of THE BOONDOCK SAINTS. Or you may just be familiar with his rise and "fall" in the documentary OVERNIGHT. Either way, his story is an interesting Hollywood story that we have heard countless times before. With THE BOONDOCK SAINTS and it's sequel hosting a rabid cult following, news of Duffy returning to direct a third feature will be met with a lot of excitement.

Deadline reports that Duffy will be developing not only a television series based on an infamous 19th century pirate titled KINGDOM COME, but his next directorial effort will be THE BLOOD SPOON COUNCIL. The film will sound familiar to fans of THE BOONDOCK SAINTS.

[A] thriller about a vigilante group led by an eccentric mastermind prolifer that hunts, captures and disposes of serial killers.

I personally don't think THE BOONDOCK SAINTS is anything special, but I do respect the lengths that Duffy has gone to in getting his movies made. With the fallout he experienced with The Weinsteins after THE BOONDOCK SAINTS II, THE BLOOD SPOON COUNCIL will be produced by Voltage Pictures. It remains to be seen if the new film can live up to the expectations of his fanbase, but I would venture to guess at the very least he will please the Redbox crowd hungering for another action movie.

I remember.....

when I came to this site and found out about the movie American Psycho. Now we have comments with +10-20 b/c they are shitting on Boondock Saints and whenever I say something about some of the shit from Marvel or Bryan Singer ruining X-men I get -10-20. I guess you guys prefer cookie cutter movies where everything goes as planned, nobody important dies, the bad guy doesn't do anything significantly bad all wrapped up with a happy ending.

Now I'm no lover of--as you call it--"cookie cutter movies," but surely you realize that none of the qualities you mentioned are inherently a) unique, or b) indicative of quality filmmaking?

Good for him but...

he is still the Guy Fieri of filmmaking. He should have stuck to tending bar.

dont care what any one thinks

I agree. The first was way better than the second but I still enjoyed it and there was enough story to get me to shell out.

Why are they letting this guy develop a tv series and letting him direct another movie? Seriously! This guy fucking sucks! He is a hack! I'd rather watch a Brett Rattner film over anything this douche bag makes

The first is slick, stylish, fun and nearly everything a Punisher movie should be. The sequel was like a horrible wayans brothers parody of the first that so desperately wanted to capture the spark of the first and missed the mark by so much that I felt embarassed for everyone involved. I guess this guy is 1-1 so these future projects will show his real caliber.

He's one of us

I think we all have that movie we dream of making, and he made his dream come true. Like his movies or not, you gotta respect the guy who has passion for what he does. And he's really not a bad film maker considering the Boondocks Saints are the only movies he's ever worked on. For someone who wrote a movie inbetween shifts as a bartender and then directed it with next to no experience, people are a little harsh with it.

He still has potential and plenty of room to grow. Maybe with better

He still has potential and plenty of room to grow. Maybe with better support from the studio, his next ventures will be better

I hope so too. I keep hearing rumors that he is almost finished with the script but then I don't hear anything else about it until the next rumor that says he is almost finished writing the script.

I can't really support this

As his movies are horrible, and he's an extreme asshole.

I think this guy's an attention seeking dickhead and I've never understood the following behind BOONDOCK SAINTS either. It's decent but nothing special to me.
