Australian-based production company Oceanside Media has signed on to produce and fully finance Troy Duffy’s latest feature film The Blood Spoon Council, his first feature film since The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day.

Duffy’s debut film, The Boondock Saints, starring Willem Dafoe, Sean Patrick Flanery, and Norman Reedus, is known for developing a large cult following as a Blockbuster exclusive DVD through word-of-mouth. His career was also the subject of the 2003 documentary Overnight.

The Blood Spoon Council is a psychological thriller that follows a group of vigilantes who hunt down serial killers in the United States and the cat-and-mouse game between an FBI profiler and the eponymous group’s elusive leader. Duffy will direct from a script co-written by Criss Lassiter and himself.

“I want to create an action packed psychological thriller with Blood Spoon and I have held nothing back,” said Duffy. “All the killers and their crimes are inspired by actual serial cases. The mastermind of the Council is a one-of-a-kind character that will take a one-of-a-kind talent to portray him. The Blood Spoon Council may be dark but it is darkly beautiful, darkly exciting and it satisfies that devilish curiosity many of us have about serial killers and the uniquely gifted individuals who pursue them.”

Duffy is currently working multiple projects in development, including the action adventure Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em and a comedy collaboration with Cedrick the Entertainer, Black Ghost, in addition to a third Boondock Saints feature. He is also partnered with Don Carmody of DCTV to create a television series from the franchise, currently titled The Boondock Saints: Origins.

“Troy has built an incredibly strong and loyal fan base following The Boondock Saints. Fans of his cult classic, both old and new, are in for a special treat with his latest film project, The Blood Spoon Council,” said Oceanside Media founder and executive chairman Scott Clayton. “He brings back the same raw, unforgiving action tangled with the kinetic storytelling that audiences know and love to his new film. With his extraordinary cinematic vision, Troy is poised to make an impactful resurgence in the industry.”

Oceanside recently announced it is producing and fully financing the action adventure One in the Chamber written by David Gordon Green, directed by Darius Shahmir, and the anticipated thriller The Claim written by Academy Award winner Damien Chazelle, to be produced in collaboration with Route One Entertainment.
