Everybody's favorite Irish Catholic twin brothers might be on their way to screens in new form, if all goes according to plan. Deadline reports that Troy Duffy, writer-director of the original 1999 Boondock Saints and its sequel, is planning on writing a potential Boondock TV series to serve as a prequel to the movies. Stars and Saints Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery might even come aboard as co-executive producers to help Duffy. "For years I’ve been obsessed with telling a real origin story with Boondock, [about the twins as Irish immigrants in South Boston], and IM Global TV has stepped up," Duffy said in a statement. "Television is the perfect medium to explore these controversial characters on a much deeper level and to bring Boondock Saints to a whole new audience." Amen — fingers crossed.
