Boondock Saints Is Being Rebooted As A TV Series
The cult classic, smash-hit movie Boondocks Saints is going to be rebooted as a TV Series. Don Carmody Television has teamed with the original film writer, Troy Duffy to revive the franchise for TV. While details for the series are extremely scarce, DCTV and Troy Duffy have stated the show will once again center around the MacManus Brothers. There’s also been no word on additional cast and crew, so we’ll just have to wait on that.
Boondock Saints was originally released as a movie in 1999, starring Sean Patrick Flannery and a Hollywood newbie by the name of Norman Reedus. The film follows Irish-born brothers Connor and Murphy MacManus as they try to rid their hometown of Boston of corruption. The cast also included Willem Dafoe as an extremely enigmatic FBI Agent, and David Della Rocco as their best friend “The Funny Man.” The movie bombed in theaters, but became a cult hit and has maintained favor with its fans over the years. The popularity of the original had swelled so much that it eventually spawned a sequel titled “Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day” in 2009.
The Boondock Saints TV series was initially teased with a giant billboard in Boston. Now, the producers of the show have launched a pretty intense campaign to help spread the word, and to secure funding for production costs. Essentially, you can fork over $600 to get an exclusive collector’s box full of Boondock Saints goodies. The coolest thing in this box though is the inclusion of the entire first season of the Boondocks Origins TV series. That’s right. If you order the collector’s box, you get the full first season of the show, before it’s broadcast anywhere else on the planet. If you head over to www.BoondocksBack.com you’ll get full details.
