[UPDATE: The Boondock Saints 2 trailer is finally here.]
That’s right, you didn’t read that wrong – Boondock Saints 2 is finally on its way after ten long years and the trailer will be premiering at next month’s San Diego Comic-Con.
This news comes directly from one of the lead actors of the sequel, Clifton Collins Jr., who’s new to the series and is reportedly playing the third Saint, joining the McManus brothers.
MovieWeb had a chance to speak with Collins Jr. over the phone and the quickly-hitting-it-big actor revealed that the trailer will be played at the convention when asked about the movie. He continued on to say:
“Yes sir, so get the word out, man. I know those seats are going to go fast, but get it out to the right people and it’d be dope to have the right people there. They’re cutting the trailer right now and it’s going to be ready for Comic-Con, specifically for Comic-Con.”
I’ll definitely be looking out for this when at the event.
Clifton’s character will join Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus as Connor and Murphy McManus respectively and he’ll probably help them take out some baddies. As for the rest of the cast, everyone’s returning from the first flick except for Willem Dafoe. Other newcomers include Julie Benz and Judd Nelson.
And for fun, here’s the latest post-production video from earlier this week:
Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day is written and directed again by Troy Duffy and will likely premiere in 2010.
Are you looking forward to the sequel of the cult hit?
