Troy Duffy Still Wants to Make 'Boondock Saints 3: Legion' Happen

It took 10 years for The Boondock Saints to get a sequel from director Troy Duffy, and The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day wasn't really worth the wait (and didn't make much money either). In fact, the cult classic was probably just better left alone being the film that high school and college students loved, plastering posters on their walls and tattoos on their hands. But if Duffy has his way, he wants to make The Boondock Saints 3 happen, at least that's what he told some fans during a Q&A on Facebook (via Flickering Myth). The film would be called The Boondock Saints 3: Legion, referring to legions of people taking the law into their own hands and following in the footsteps of the now famous brothers from Ireland.
In addition, the film will also go back in time to show the McManus brothers very first crime. Both of the details revealed seem to indicate that this film could easily happen without the involvement of Sean Patrick Flanery or Norman Reedus, especially since they ended up in prison at the end of the second film. And that would make sense since Reedus said nearly two years ago, "There will not be a part three. Creative differences, so to speak.” As far as the delay between the first film and the lackluster sequel, Duffy takes the blame saying, "It’s my fault. It’s taken awhile… It’s cause I want to get it right.” And it sounds like that could just as easily happen again since Duffy offered no timetable as to when the project might get off the ground. But at this point, there's probably not much demand anyway. Does anyone care?
