    CULVER CITY, CALIF. (January 15, 2010) Writer/Director Troy Duffy’s much-anticipated sequel to the cult classic The Boondock Saints blasts its way onto Blu-ray™ and DVD March 9 when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment releases The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. The tough, stylized, vigilante-justice saga follows the boys when they return to Boston after being framed for the murder of a priest. Joined by a new accomplice, the Saints exact vengeance on those responsible and at the same time, discover a deeper plot rooted in their own family’s legacy of violence. Joining original cast members Sean Patrick Flanery (TV’s “Stephen King’s Dead Zone”), Norman Reedus (Cadillac Records, American Gangster), David Della Rocco (Jake’s Corner), and Billy Connolly (The X Files: I Want to Believe) are Clifton Collins Jr.(Star Trek, Brothers), Julie Benz (TV’s “Dexter”), Peter Fonda (Wild Hogs, Ghost Rider), and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo’s Fire).

    The Blu-ray™ and DVD special features on The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day include two commentary tracks with filmmakers & cast, deleted scenes, and two behind-the-scenes featurettes: the making-of documentary “Unprecedented Access: Behind the Scenes” and “Billy Connolly and Troy Duffy: Unedited,” a multi-camera, off-the-cuff conversation in which they discuss the success of the first movie, their evolutions as filmmaker and actor, and what they hope to capture on their second go-round. The Blu-ray™ exclusive material includes three additional featurettes: “Inside the Vault: The Weapons,” which profiles the team responsible for all the artillery and ammo on the film; “The Cast Confesses: Secrets from the Set,” in which the cast discussed making the film; “The Boondock Saints Hit Comic-Con,” a look at All Saints Day at the famous fan forum, including footage of the panel and signings; and a sneak peek of the motion comic. In addition, the Blu-ray™ Disc features movieIQ, which allows the user to access real time information on the cast, music, trivia and more while watching the movie via BD-Live™. The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day will be available on Blu-ray™ for $34.95 SRP and DVD for $27.96 SRP.

    From Troy Duffy, writer and director of The Boondock Saints, comes the much anticipated sequel to the tough, stylized cutting edge saga of the MacManus brothers (Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery). The two have been in deep hiding with their father, Il Duce (Billy Connolly), in the quiet valleys of Ireland, far removed from their former vigilante lives. When word comes that a beloved priest has been killed by sinister forces from deep within the mob, the brothers return to Boston to mount a violent and bloody crusade to bring justice to those responsible. With a new partner in crime (Clifton Collins Jr., Star Trek) and a sexy FBI operative (Julie Benz, TV's “Dexter”) hot on their trail…the Saints are back!

    Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day was written and directed by Troy Duffy from a story by Troy Duffy & Taylor Duffy. Chris Brinker and Don Carmody produced with Lloyd Segan and Rob Fried serving as executive producers.
