With The Walking Dead season 7 already starting this month, many people are wondering what is the next big project their favorite actors and actresses. Fortunately, Norman Reedus did not want to leave fans guessing, as he confirmed that he is already working on The Boondock Saints 3.
The third installment in the film franchise was first announced as early as September of last year. The first movie did not particularly achieve success in the box office, and some even called it a bad rip-off of a Tarantino film. However, the film found its niche in the home video market, with sales successful enough to warrant a sequel years later in the form of The Boondock Saints 2.
The sequel suffered the same fate as it predecessor. It outperformed the original, but it is still not enough to be considered a “box office success.” However, the loyal fan base proved that they can still rescue the franchise as the second film found even more success in the home video market.
Now, in The Boondock Saints 3, Norman Reedus and his co-star Sean Patrick Flanery will reprise their roles as Murphy and Connor McManus. As director Troy Duffy reveals, the story will focus on the two brothers being treated as folk heroes. There will also be a story arc that takes the audiences back in time, to the “first ever crime” that the brothers committed.
The Walking Dead star also confirmed as early as 2015 that he will appear in the third film. In an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit, he revealed to redditors that work has already begun on the third film. Moreover, he confirmed that his co-actor Sean will still be portraying his respective role.
Many believe that Norman Reedus’ popularity on The Walking Dead may affect the viewership of The Boondock Saints 3 for the better. And if not, there is still the possibility of finding their success on home video yet again.
