Print this article After a limited release in 1999, "The Boondock Saints" has grown into one of the biggest cult action movies in recent memory. Now, it appears as though a video game adaptation is in the works. Director Troy Duffy told The Hollywood Reporter at SXSW recently that some developers have already laid the groundwork for such a title and that its production is the logical next step.
The news source reports that Duffy wants to be sure that the project stays as true to the original film as possible, including the realistic South Boston landscape that made it one of the most popular gangster DVDs.
"The Boondock fan base wants to have a beer with the MacManus brothers and then pick up a weapon and fight," he told the news source. "With a video game,you can increase that kind of intimacy, where they can actually be the brothers and hang out and do some shooting and have some fun."
Duffy released a sequel to the film in 2009, "The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day," which brought back stars Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus from the original, and "Muppet Treasure Island" actor Billy Connoly reprised his role as their father.
