Boondock Saints 2?

Well, in the spirit of this week's theme, news has been circulating around a sequel to the cult classic Boondock Saints.

This isn't the first time that rumors have been floating around about a sequel to this movie...but writer/director Troy Duffy put out a video on YouTube (which since has been removed) on St. Patty's Day announcing the green light to Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. Apparently in a documentary about the making of the first film, called Overnight, Troy Duffy is shown in his rise from a bartender to director, but melts down in the process. I've yet to see the documentary, but imagine that Duffy's personality has presented problems for greenlighting a sequel. Therefore, I'm skeptical of the truth surrounding this video of his, but I would certainly love to see a sequel.

At the same time, however, I'm always skeptical of sequels. Some do well...some do horrible. Boondock Saints did not do well when it was released...it follows the familiar cult classic development. Based on that...I wonder how the production would go for a sequel.

We'll see what happens...

Either way, Boondock Saints is a great film: great story, great script, great characters, great action, great score, great humor...and great accidental cat murder.

"get your stupid f@!#ing rope"

This was supposed to come out 2 years ago, and since then the page that was on imdb for it had been taken down... are you sure that there will actually be an All Saints Day? or was it just a St Patty's Day Hoax?

my money is on Hoax, but I would love a sequel

Yea, I know it's been a floating rumor for sometime now, which is why I'm skeptical of its truth.

But it was Duffy himself who announced it, and what better time to announce it than St. Patty's Day?

I'm with you though...I'll believe it when I see it...and I would definitely love to see it.
