BOONDOCK SAINTS TV SERIES REBOOT ON IT' S WAY

TEAM BEHIND CULT CLASSIC FILM THE BOONDOCK SAINTS REUNITES
FOR TV SERIES REBOOT

Exclusive Fan-Focused Pre-Order Campaign Kicks Off Today.

 Don Carmody Television (DCTV) today announced they have reteamed with The Boondock Saints creator Troy Duffy to revive the cult classic film franchise for television, with an exclusive fan-focused pre-order campaign of the newly reimagined installment - The Boondock Saints: Origins

An American crime film written and directed by Duffy, The Boondock Saints first hit screens in 1999 and starred Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus as Irish immigrant fraternal twins, Connor and Murphy MacManus, who become vigilantes in order to rid their home city of Boston, Massachusetts of crime, evil and corruption. The film garnered more than $260 million in worldwide theatrical and DVD sales and has a robust social media presence of more than four million followers.

DCTV teased the return with a mysterious billboard appearing in Beantown skies over the last month, which kept Bostonians guessing just which brothers were watching over the city and why. The television reboot campaign officially kicks off today with the launch of a fan-driven pre-sales initiative at BoondocksBack.com. In addition to DVD and digital download pre-orders of the series, fans of the franchise will have access to experiences, merchandise and a limited edition subscription box. Fans purchasing the offering will also gain access to exclusive bonus and behind-the-scenes content.

“The Boondock Saints has become an irreverent cult brand that has resonated with loyal fans across the globe for almost 20 years”, said Don Carmody, Executive Producer and Chairman of DCTV. “We’re beyond excited to reward our fans with an unprecedented opportunity to go behind the curtain throughout the entire creative development and production processes via a myriad of exclusive material, outreach and sneak peeks”.

“A television series is the perfect medium for story telling inside the world of our beloved blue collar super heroes. The brothers have always been defenders of the people, justice, fairness and the city of Boston”, says Creator and Executive Producer Troy Duffy. “In this sensitive time of human rights unrest, government scandal and civil corruption, there couldn’t be a better moment to re-launch the brothers iconic brand of justice in the Cradle of Democracy”.

“The Boondock Saints” television series will be executive produced by Duffy (Boondock Saints, Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day), Carmody and David Cormican of DCTV (“ShadowHunters,” “Tokyo Trial,” “Between,” “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe.”)

Carmody, a producer of the first two movies in The Boondock Saints franchise and the Academy Award winning Chicago and Good Will Hunting, as well as the Resident Evil and Silent Hill franchises, recently made the move in to producing television, including the Emmy nominated “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe” for Lifetime, “ShadowHunters” for Freeform and “Between” and “Tokyo Trial” for Netflix.

Additional producers, production team, showrunner and production details and worldwide casting calls will be released in the coming weeks as the campaign engages fans. The revamped logo design and branding for the television reboot has been made in association with Imaginary Forces, Ryde Studios and the producers.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
