So today I must say I have some fab news to share with you all. Being a huge fan of The Boondock Saints, I am proud to announce that they are BACK!! They are coming to your TV in a new series The Boondock Saints: Origins. This is freaking fabulous. That is not all you can get this amazing box set of the first season NOW, before this shit airs or streams. SAY WHAT?!?!? This is just amazing news because The Boondock Saints have to be about my favorite movies and I love that they are finally bringing the cult classic back…Woot Woot…doing my happy dance right now.
An American crime film written and directed by Duffy, The Boondock Saints first hit screens in 1999 and starred Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus as Irish immigrant fraternal twins, Connor and Murphy MacManus, who become vigilantes in order to rid their home city of Boston, Massachusetts of crime, evil and corruption. The film garnered more than $260 million in worldwide theatrical and DVD sales and has a robust social media presence of more than four million followers.
The television reboot campaign officially kicks off today with the launch of a fan-driven pre-sales initiative at BoondocksBack.com. In addition to DVD and digital download pre-orders of the series, fans of the franchise will have access to experiences, merchandise, and a limited edition subscription box. Fans purchasing the offering will also gain access to exclusive bonus and behind-the-scenes content.
“The Boondock Saints has become an irreverent cult brand that has resonated with loyal fans across the globe for almost 20 years”, said Don Carmody, Executive Producer and Chairman of DCTV. “We’re beyond excited to reward our fans with an unprecedented opportunity to go behind the curtain throughout the entire creative development and production processes via a myriad of exclusive material, outreach and sneak peeks.”
“A television series is the perfect medium for story telling inside the world of our beloved blue-collar super heroes. The brothers have always been defenders of the people, justice, fairness and the city of Boston”, says Creator and Executive Producer Troy Duffy. “In this sensitive time of human rights unrest, government scandal and civil corruption, there couldn’t be a better moment to re-launch the brothers iconic brand of justice in the Cradle of Democracy.”
“The Boondock Saints” television series will be executive produced by Duffy (Boondock Saints, Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day), Carmody and David Cormican of DCTV (“ShadowHunters,” “Tokyo Trial,” “Between,” “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe.”)
