A lot of fans of THE BOONDOCK SAINTS franchise have wondered for the past few years if there would ever be a third installment. Since THE BOONDOCK SAINTS II: ALL SAINTS DAY came out in 2009, the two stars of the franchise have gone on to many other projects. Sean Patrick Flanery has starred in DEXTER, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS and SAW 3D: THE FINAL CHAPTER, while Norman Reedus has become a geek god playing Daryl Dixon on THE WALKING DEAD. Both actors have repeatedly said they would return for a third film in a heartbeat, and the fandom for the franchise has stayed strong thanks to them making frequent appearances at pop culture conventions around the world. The creator and director of the first two films, Troy Duffy, made a post on Twitter last week that some might have overlooked. It’s a script page, and what appears to be the first script page from THE BOONDOCK SAINTS 3. See it here:

One thing we notice is (if this is indeed to be the opening) this may actually be the end of the third film’s story, possibly opening on the last scene then going back to tell how the boys got where they are. If this is to be the last movie in a trilogy, perhaps Connor and Murphy MacManus die at the end. In some ways that might be the most fitting way to close out the franchise. So what does this Tweet actually mean? Is the film moving forward? Is the script done? Chances are the obvious clue is a third film may now be closer than ever before. We’ll keep tabs on this and see if anything new pops up. How do you feel about the possibility of a third BOONDOCK film? Tell us in the comments.
