Part of the plot would be the discovery of legions of vigilantes. It seems that a lot of people have followed on the twins' footsteps.
Rumors were circulating that big Hollywood movie stars will be cast on the "The Boondock Saints 3: Legion". It was reported that Brad Pitt was cast a role for the movie but the writer, creator and would be director of the movie Troy Duffy was hesitant because Pitt already played an Irish man in a movie before.

According to the report, both Reedus and Flanery will reprise their roles as the twins. The director has been keen on getting the actors on "The Boondock Saints 3" since 2013.
