American actor Norman Reedus has provided fans with an exciting update on the long-awaited third outing in the cult action favorite "The Boondock Saints" franchise.

Before his days as one of the most beloved characters in "The Walking Dead" franchise, Reedus began to stake his claim to fame when he starred in 1999's "The Boondock Saints". 

Not exactly a favorite of critics at the time, the pic starred Reedus as Murphy and Sean Patrick Flanery as Connor. 

The pair portrayed two Catholic brothers turned vigilantes who take it upon themselves to rid the city of Boston of its criminal underbelly. However, the bloody nature of the war they wage on crime sees them as the target of Willem Dafoe's FBI agent Smecker. 

The movie became a duology when a sequel "The Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day" arrived a decade later. It ends on a cliffhanger when Connor and Murphy find themselves behind bars — waiting on Smecker to set them free.  While the third film has been planned for quite some time, it has been stuck in development hell.

In a conversation with ScreenRant, Reedus confirmed Murphy and Connor will break out of prison in "The Boondock Saints 3". 

"There's sort of a rough outline of a script. The opening sequence, I think they're keeping from that rough outline because it's crazy. It's crazy. It's basically the boys breaking out of prison. That's how it starts," the Walking Dead star said.

The update comes as a relief for the franchise fans considering Reedus previously claimed the third installment was no longer happening, tweeting, "No part three. sorry guys," after telling IGN it was happening. 

The tweet came after it was reported that he was set to meet with co-star Flanery and writer-director Troy Duffy.

For the third entry, Duffy, who is created as the franchise creator, will not be a part of it with Thunder Road Films — the production company behind the John Wick franchise — taking over production for the pic. 

"The Boondocks Saints 3" does not have a release date yet.
