Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has officially announced that they are adding the director’s cut of The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day to their upcoming slate of Blu-ray releases. The film is a sequel to the cult classic The Boondock Saints and was directed by Troy Duffy.

The film takes place eight years after the events of the first film. The MacManus Brothers have been living with their father on a sheep farm deep in isolated Ireland. One day their uncle tells them that they have been framed for the murder of a Bostonian Catholic priest. The boys must return to Boston to not only clear their names but find the men who framed them.
