‘Boondock’ hitches ride with Apparition

Pic is fifth added to Berney, Pohlad co.'s slate

Apparition will shepherd the U.S. theatrical release of “The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day.”

It’s the fifth pic to be added to Bob Berney and Bill Pohlad’s new company slate.

The Oct. 30 platform rollout is a partnership with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group, which controls the pic’s domestic ancillaries and international rights.

Pic is the follow-up to filmmaker Troy Duffy’s 1999 cult fave “Boondock Saints,” about twins who go on a killing spree to rid Boston of gangsters. The original “Saints” became something of a DVD phenomenon, with a following among young boys.

New pic will cater to the fan base with original cast members Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery, plus additions Clifton Collins Jr. and Julie Benz.

Written and directed by Duffy, and produced by Chris Brinker and Don Carmody, “Saints II” follows the brothers back to Boston, where they avenge the death of a beloved priest.

Deal is one of several to be made in rapid succession after the formation of Apparition this summer. SPWAG, headed by Steve Bersch, has an ancillary pact with Apparition.
