After several years trying to get another “The Boondock Saints” sequel off the ground, filmmaker Troy Duffy is taking another path with plans to write and direct a ‘Boondock’ TV prequel series for IM Global Television.
Duffy has written and will direct the first episode, and has already compiled a series bible which chronicles the MacManus boys’ origins as Irish immigrants in South Boston.
Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery, who played the MacManus twins in the films, will not star but may serve as co-executive producers. Duffy, Don Carmody, Lloyd Segan, and D. Matt Geller will executive produce and a show runner is being sought.
“The Boondock Saints” TV series does not yet have a network or streaming service, but producers are said to be aiming for a straight-to-series order.
