Quick, name The Guy Who Lived Down The Hall From Your Dorm Room Freshman Year’s favorite crime movie. No, not The Usual Suspects. And not Goodfellas. Yes, that’s right. I’m talking about Boondock Saints. The movie poster on The Guy’s dorm room wall that let everyone know he’s just a little bit different. He didn’t just watch any shoot ‘em up film. He knew about cult classics. He wanted to find the films that weren’t as popular as their big name counterparts, but had all of the same talent. And Boondock Saints was his movie. It was the 98 Degrees of the late ’90s revenge thrillers. And now, it’s getting its third installment:
[Director Troy] Duffy offered the Boondock Saints 3 during a fan Q&A on Facebook (via Flickering Myth). Unlike some directors, he’s not particularly secretive about the details of his upcoming film. He revealed that the new movie was currently titled The Boondock Saints 3: Legion.
The “Legion” part of the title apparently refers to the legions of people who, inspired by the McManus boys, decide to become vigilantes themselves. Additionally, The Boondock Saints 3: Legion will look back at the McManuses’ beginnings, flashing back to their “very first crime.”
Duffy readily admitted that he had only himself to blame for the long delay between the second and third films. “It’s my fault,” he said. “It’s taken awhile… It’s cause I want to get it right.” However, it may take a while longer still, seeing as he didn’t offer any estimates as to when Boondock Saints 3: Legion might hit theaters or even begin shooting.
“It’s taken awhile… It’s cause I want to get it right.” Oh, Troy, why start now? Hiyo!
Don’t forget to tip your waitresses, ladies and gentleman! I’ll be here all night. Willem, can you play us out?
