The Boondock Saints 3 is surely arriving but no definite release date has been announced yet. It is been seven years since the second installment was released. But despite the long wait, the fans did not lose hope to see the third installment. The second installment was released after a decade of waiting.
Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery will reprise their roles as the Irish-American twins, Connor and Murphy MacManus. The latest news says that Brad Pitt was offered a role in The Boondock Saints 3. However, project director Troy Duffy was reluctant to avail the services of the By the Sea actor.
The reason behind is that Angelina Jolie’s ex-husband has already portrayed an Irish man’s role in The Devil’s Own. Besides, Pitt has not talked to Duffy yet. Ewan McGregor and Keanu Reeves were also considered to appear in the said movie. However, the project director was not interested in taking them in.
