Trailer Watch: Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day

If you were to do a Google search for Troy Duffy’s name and the words “cautionary tale” you’d find several pages recounting the story of how a young unknown got the chance of a lifetime when he sold the script to The Boondock Saints to Miramax, managed to become the film’s director, got his band’s music in the film, and then proceeded to alienate everyone who championed him by being a dick. (In fact, that very story is also the subject of a 2003 documentary called Overnight.)

However, either an angel or a saint must have been watching over Duffy—or maybe he just learned his lesson—because 10 years after the release of the original film which did poorly in the box office but gangbusters in home video sales, Duffy, his two leads Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus, and others are back in Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day.

Furthermore, Anne Thompson (who’s now writing for Indie Wire) has reported that the film has been picked up by Apparition for distribution alongside a deal that he struck with Sony Worldwide Acquisitions to release Saints 2 on October 30 as well as some other films.

Says Thompson of the film’s plot:

This time the brothers [McManus] come out of hiding to avenge a beloved priest who was hit by the Mob. Clifton Collins and Julie Benz join the ensemble.

    OH! I didn't know Guy Richie was doing this one!

    …oh, wait…

    Now, I'm a huge fan of the first one, but I have plenty of doubts on this one. I feel it's going to try WAY too hard. Hope I am wrong, however.
