Boondock Saints Turning Into A Video Game?

Yeah. Um...what?

Duffy, the director of the two Boondock movies, was in Austin for the South By Southwest Festival and opened up on a potential video game to add to the franchise. 

"We're thinking of making a video game out of 'Boondock' and I went and listened to these guys pitch me the game and they had already done some programing," said Duffy. "They had already built part of the game and I got to play it."

Who "the[se] guys" are, it doesn't say. It could very well be a large gaming studio such as EA, (anyone remember the Godfather game?), or Vivendi, known for it's movie spin-off games such as Scarface: The World Is Yours. But the director of Boondock seems very interested in the concept of making a game. The most important aspects to him is to keep the gritty feel of the movies, and to allow people to play all of their favorite characters.

Personally, I don't know what to make of it. I mean, it's great that he wants to expand upon the franchise from it's cult status, but movie games tend to suck. I don't think any of us want to see Boondock fall into the same pit.
