Bad guys beware — the Saints are marching back into Hollywood for a third round of vigilante vengeance!

Norman Reedus took a few moments away from huntin’ zombies on ‘The Walking Dead’ to confirm that another fan-beloved franchise will be returning to the big screen! In both the original ‘Boondock Saints’ and its sequel, Reedus plays Murphy MacManus, one half of the lovable, foul-mouthed, gun-toting duo that strikes fear into the hearts of Boston mobsters. Now he says he and co-star Sean Patrick Flanery will take on a third installment under the direction of ‘Boondock’ creator Troy Duffy. In a recent interview, Reedus told IFC that he had travelled to LA to meet with Flanery and Duffy and that ‘Boondock Saints III’ is “definitely in the works.” He hasn’t revealed any details, but does promise that, quote “It’s gonna be crazy,” to which we reply, “No, duh.”

The first ‘Boondock Saints’ introduced us to the Irish Catholic MacManus brothers, who receive a calling from God to clean up the streets of Boston by executing members of the Russian Mob with as much graphic violence as they can muster. Although the 1999 film achieved cult status, it was universally panned by critics and made nary a blip at the box office. Still, the rabid ‘Boondock’ fan base and remarkable video sales were enough to spawn a sequel. Unfortunately, while the brothers’ return to Boston in 2009 earned a slightly better critical reception, fans were less enthusiastic and the film was ultimately a financial flop.

Where does that leave ‘Boondock Saints III’? Visit the comments below and let us know what you think of the project — are you looking forward to it, and what do you think the filmmakers need to do to get the franchise back on track?

  1. My FAVORITE PART…. GET YOUR FU———N ROPE !!!!
    SO EXCITED I HATE THEY CALL THE MOVIE A FLOP. THE ONLY THING I MISS IS ROCKO. 5 YRS AGO MY SISTER & I GOT OUR VERITAS AEQUITAS TATTOOS. It’s AMAZING HOW MANY PEOPLE KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THE WORD COME FROM. FOR US ITS ALSO THE MEANING OF THEM. ALONG WITH CATHOLIC SCHOOL & LATIN CLASS.

  2. I think this will be a passing of the torch movie. Title….
    Boondock Saints 3 "Everlasting Faith"
    Murphy and Connor MacManus have kids and, like their father Il Duce, distance themselves from them via exile. Then they come back and join their kids to bring back justice. Their children develop a small army to spread to other cities as a teaser for future movies. Thus starting a new chapter. That can be Saints 4 Title…. "New Prophets"

  3. My favorite movies of all time cant wait to see number 3!!! Would be awesome to see Rocco return somehow but even if he doesn't I know it'll still be awesome.

  4. This is my second coming of Jesus. I cannot tell you how stoked I am for this movie. Seeing the last one end made me hope for a third and final movie to round the story out and tie everything up. This is better news than hearing I was having a son and this brings more enjoyment than my wedding day. Thank everything that people worship for the third installment of this movie.

  5. I had a poster on the wall with the boys and the prayer as well on it. That's way i hate open-ended movies it leaves us guessing if there would be another one after them same goes for TV serious as well. Can not f-ing wait!!!??!!
