Saints sequel loses cast member

Saints sequel loses cast member
Clint

Here’s a clue. He fought Spider-Man.


When it happens – and he says it is, but that doesn’t mean we’ll all be alive when it comes out, but blame the studio, not him – writer/director Troy Duffy says “Boondock Saints II” won’t have original star Willem Dafoe in it.

Seems The Green Goblin is more of a studio man, than an edgy Indy savoir, these days, so he’s out.

“Everybody’s back in except Willem Dafoe, [because] sometimes actors have their careers plotted out in different ways and he’s sort of doing a different thing now. So he’s the only one who won’t be back”, Duffy told IGN.

“Billy Connolly, the brothers, Rocco, everybody’s in and calling me every two weeks and going “when are we going to do this thing?” So eager is how I would describe the interest of the actors. On top of that, we’ve got some new roles in it and we’re going to be able to do some interesting casting at that point. So I can’t wait to see what kind of new faces we can come up with for these roles.

“Actually, it’s strange. This is going to sound weird, but the wake of Boondock and my particular history in the business seems to have a positive effect on production companies and people in the business wanting to read my work. So we’ve had no problem getting people to read it and consider it, and we just literally started doing that this week, so we’re going to hear some stuff pretty soon. But it’s almost like all of that history sort of worked in my favor, like “oh, that guy? He’s got a new script? Yeah I want to read it.” I don’t know exactly why that is, but I think there’s a different level of interest than in a normal dude.

The original film, which video has turned into a cult classic, starred Sean Patrick Flannery and Norman Reedus as two fraternal twins who set out to rid Boston of the evil men operating there, while being tracked down by an FBI agent.
