From Oceanside Media, writer/director Troy Duffy (The Boondock Saints) and writer Criss Lassiter, comes The Blood Spoon Council, a film about a vigilante group hunting down and executing serial killers. There is no release date at this time.
The Blood Spoon Council is a vigilante group that hunts down and executes serial killers. When the FBI commissions a rogue profiler to get inside the head of the group, the investigation is derailed by a game of cat-and-mouse.
Troy Duffy may currently be working on a Boondock Saints TV series called Boondock Saints: Origins, which will act as both a prequel and re-imagining of the two cult classic films in the franchise, but he’s always wanted to bring Blood Spoon Council to the bigscreen and that finally seems to have come to fruition thanks to Oceanside Media.

“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. 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,” said producer Scott Clayton.
Duffy hasn’t directed a film since 2009 when he released The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day to mixed reactions (some fans have put that first film on such a high pedestal that nothing would satisfy them). When I interviewed Duffy years ago to talk about those movies, he mentioned that he was writing Blood Spoon Council and the concept always seemed like a killer idea. Sure it’s similar in vein to Boondock Saints, but he was just so amped and excited about it that I’m truly happy he’s getting a chance to do something other than Boondock Saints for the first time in his career.
”I want to create an action packed psychological thriller with ‘Blood Spoon’ and I have held nothing back. 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,” said Duffy.
