Egomaniac bartender-turned-director Troy Duffy is shooting a sequel to the infamous B-movie actioner that took from him from zero to hero to zero.
Back in 1997, Harvey Weinstein walked into Duffy’s bar and gave him $15 million to direct his debut script and even produce the soundtrack with is band The Brood.
But, as chronicled in ace documentary Overnight, Duffy self-destructed - blowing Weinstein’s cash and his own film career.
Amazingly, he’s back to direct his own script, The Boondock Saints II: All Saint’s Day.
Bill Connolly, Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus all reprise their roles, the latter two playing a crusading fraternal twins Connor and Murphy MacManus, chasing revenge in the Boston underworld.
“It’s a joy and a long time coming to be bringing such an enormously talented group of people back together again,” says Duffy.
Harvey Weinstein, strangely, is not producing.
