The film takes place eight years after the events of the original Boondock Saints, as sibling vigilantes Connor (Flanery) and Murphy (Reedus) are living a quiet life with their father, the former assassin known as "Il Duce." However, they are drawn back into action after someone attempts to frame the brothers for the murder of a priest in Boston. The duo travel back to the United States, where they meet some old friends and are pursued by Eunice Bloom (Julie Benz), FBI Agent and former protege of the first film's Agent Smecker.
The Boondock Saints stars Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus as Catholic Irish fraternal twins, Connor and Murphy MacManus, who become vigilantes after killing two members of the Russian Mafia in self-defense. After both experiencing an epiphany, the brothers, together with their friend David Della Rocco, set out to rid their home city of Boston, Massachusetts of crime and evil; all the while being pursued by FBI Special Agent Paul Smecker (Willem Dafoe).
The Boondock Saints franchise, which is so far comprised of two films, a one-shot comic and mobile game, is expanding once again in the form of a multi-platform video game as was just announced at the SXSW expo. Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus and David Della Rocco will lend their voices to their respective characters.
Troy Duffy and J.B. Love - the writers behind The Boondock Saints' initial foray into comics will be signing the collected graphic novel edition at Barnes & Nobel in Los Angeles and they’re bringing David Della Rocco as well!
Boondock Saints director and writer Troy Duffy, co-writer J.B. Love, artist Guus Floor and producer Eben Matthews spoke in detail about the violent opus that is 'The Secret History of Il Duce', available as a graphic novel this November.
If you're as huge Boondock Saints fan as I very much am, then you must own this upcoming collection of the six issue mini-series from 12-Gauge Comics. 'In Nomine Patris' is a grim, bloodthirsty opus that reveals the extremely dark past of Il Duce.
