Christopher Webster [Celluloid 10.29.08] movie news action



Besides the basic news that Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day is still alive and well, you'll be very happy to hear that the original cast will also be returning for Troy Duffy's sequel to his own 1999 cult hit. Yep, Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus have indeed signed on to appear as the McManus brothers. Billy Connolly, David Della Rocco, and Brian Mahoney, all actors who were only rumored to be attached are now confirmed. The story of Boondock Saints 2 is as follows:

"The boys and their father Il Duce have been living in seclusion, deep in Ireland on a sheep farm, away from everything, when Il Duce’s brother comes to tell them that a priest was murdered in Boston and it was set up to look like it was done by the Saints.


The boys rush back to deal with it while their supposedly ailing father stays on the farm. As soon as the brothers land, they start picking off anyone who may be tied to this framing.


I'm intrigued by the revelation that Il Duce is "supposedly" ailing. Does that mean it's an act? Unfortunately, Willem Dafoe is not in the sequel. Apparently a new FBI detective comes into play — a strong southern female - who wants to catch the Saints and is working with some of the detectives in the first movie.

Yup my buddies (who live on top of the pita pit beside Einsteins) have been watching film trucks roll in and out of UofT and the surrounding area. Almost liberated some 300's from a truck but sawa gaurd a booked it. It looks like quite abig production. Another friend of mine is in the local NABET union so I have to find out if hes invloved but most likely its a I.A.T.S.E production so no inside scoop.
