Season 7 of "The Walking Dead" has already started which means Norman Reedus, who plays the wildly popular Daryl Dixon, will have some free time within the next few months. Reedus has confirmed that "Boondock Saints 3" will happen.

'Boondock Saints 3' is coming!

In September of 2015, the film's producer, Troy Duffy, announced on his Facebook page that "Boondock Saints 3" was in the works. The original saints movie did not hold the same notoriety that box office hits hold; but to the tried and true fans of the movie, this does not matter to them.

They understand that at the original time of release, the Columbine High School shootings had happened so the release was changed and when it did hit theaters, it was for a very limited time and only at select theaters. "The Boondock Saints" went to video right away. The second film went right to video and outperformed the original, finding success in the video market.

Norman Reedus makes fans happy

"The Walking Dead" star discussed in 2015 that he had already started filming the saints movie along with Troy Duffy.

Now that the new season of the zombie television hit has started, Reedus will start working on film. Reedus, who plays Murphy McManus, also stated that Sean Patrick Flanery, who plays his brother Connor McManus, will also return for his role.

Reedus has also stated that fans will find themselves emerged in a backstory which will tell the tale of the first crime that the brothers had committed. Troy Duffy has stated that in this movie there will be the focus that the brothers are treated as "folk heroes." Troy Duffy believes that the popularity of Norman Reedus, thanks to "The Walking Dead" will have a huge impact on the release of "The Boondock Saints 3." If for some reason this does not happen, the movie will go straight to video where fans will probably give the first two movies a run for their money.

As of the date of this publication, no release date has been set for "The Boondock Saints 3." "The Walking Dead" airs on AMC Sunday evenings at 9:00 p.m. EST and is rumored to be the season that turns the show away from plots and twists the viewers are used to. Buckle up "The Walking Dead" fans; this might be the season's bumpiest ride yet.
