Norman Reedus Now Says No Third BOONDOCK SAINTS Movie Will be Made

After two feature films and a graphic novel, the vigilante brothers from Boston known as the Boondock Saints are making their way back to the big screen for a final chapter.
The Boondock Saints, written and directed by Troy Duffy, was released in 1999 to favorable reviews and financial success. The film starred Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus as Irish fraternal twins Connor and Murphy McManus who by happenstance become vigilantes. The film also starred David Della Rocco, Willem Dafoe and Billy Connolly as their father. A sequel, The Boondock Saints: All Saint's Day, was released in 2009 and director Duffy has since been trying to get his stars back together for the final film in the planned trilogy.
Last week, Reedus gave fans of the franchise hope that a third film - tentatively titled The Boondock Saints III: Saints Preserve Us -- was "definitely in the works." But according to recent Twitter posts from The Walking Dead star, it appears the statement was premature. After a meeting with creator Troy Duffy and co-star Sean Patrick Flannery over the weekend, Reedus said: "No part three. sorry guys... [Sean and I] were under the impression too. It’s all good. We wish [Troy] luck."
