Following the announcement that "The Boondock Saints 3: Legion" is now in the works, fans of the action-packed film are eager to know more details about the third installment. Reports claim that two of its original cast members will reprise their roles while two big stars were allegedly rejected to be part of it.

After seven long years since the second installment was released, "The Boondock Saints 3: Legion" finally got the green light and is now currently in the works. Writer and director Troy Duffy opened up about the status of the upcoming film via the official "The Boondock Saints" Facebook page. Duffy answered some fans questions and even hinted on possible plots for the follow-up film.

According to the director, "The Boondock Saints 3: Legion" took a while to come out because he wants to "get it right." Duffy has been kind enough to share parts of the script for the third installment on his Twitter, teasing fans of what to expect.

Meanwhile, "The Walking Dead" star Norman Reedus also confirmed that the film is now in pre-production. In a Reddit Ask Me Anything post, the actor answered some questions whether or not "The Boondock Saints 3: Legion" was moving forward, saying, "Yeah it's on. In the works, happening."

Adding to fans' anticipation is the cast members who will take part in the movie. According to reports, both Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery will reprise their roles as twins, Connor and Murphy MacManus. The same source also added that Duffy is very keen to have the two back in the movie and has been talking about it as early as 2013.

On the other hand, there are also claims that big names in the industry have expressed their interest to be part of "The Boondock Saints 3: Legion." Rumors have it that Brad Pitt was offered a role in the movie but Duffy was hesitant to include him in the cast since he already portrayed an Irish man's role in "The Devil's Own."

Aside from Brad Pitt, Keanu Reeves, and Ethan Hawke are allegedly interested in a role in the cult film. However, reports claimed that director Troy Duffy was not interested in taking them in. There were even claims that he "rejected" the big stars, calling Hawke a "talentless fool" and Reeves a "f*cking punk." There have been no confirmations regarding these rumors.

As of this writing, there has been no official announcement about the "The Boondock Saints 3: Legion" release date.
