Way back in 1999, a film unbeknownst to practically everyone, was released in a miniscule theatrical rollout before it hit the shelves on DVD, then only available at Blockbuster. As the word-of-mouth kept growing and growing, the DVD was finally available for purchase in 2002 and not long after that, Troy Duffy's The Boondock Saints became a cult phenomena, the likes of which are rarely seen in the movie biz. Now, a decade later, Troy Duffy is finally able to round up the Saints once more for the highly-anticipated sequel The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, which will be released in theaters on October 30.
Of course, the Saints themselves, Sean Patrick Flanery as Connor, Norman Reedus as Murphy, and Billy Connolly as their father, Il Duce (or Poppa M) have returned for the sequel, but we also get some new faces in the mix as well. Clifton Collins Jr., a longtime friend of everyone involved in the first film, comes on board as Romeo, the Saints' new partner, and the lovely Julie Benz is on the other side of the law as Eunice Bloom, the new federal agent who comes in to keep tabs on the boys, and wreak playful havoc on the local cops. I had the chance to speak with Flanery, Reedus, Collins Jr., Benz and director Troy Duffy exclusively about this long-awaited film, and you can click on the video interview featurette below to see what they had to say.
The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day stars Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus, Billy Connolly, Julie Benz, Clifton Collins Jr., Judd Nelson, Peter Fonda and will hit theaters on October 30 in limited release.
