The only detail about the game to come from the event is that it would feature the vocal talents of Flanery, Reedus and Rocco, who hope to be involved in the creative process as development moves forward.

Most of the Boondock Saints Video Game panel at SXSW Interactive's Screenburn Arcade did not actually have much to do with the video game based on the Boondock Saints. Rather, a good 45 minutes of the 48-or-so minute-long presentation was dedicated to a Q&A in which stars Sean Patrick Flanery (Connor MacManus), Norman Reedus (Murphy MacManus) and David Della Rocco (Rocco) fielded questions from the franchise's most diehard fans.

These questions, for the most part, largely concerned propositions towards the panel's hosts, or requests for the reciting of lines from the films. A young woman requested a hug from one of the men, the woman who followed requested a kiss, and the next asked if one of the men wanted to "do something later." It was an altogether disquieting sexual arms race.

The only detail about the game to come from the event is that it would feature the vocal talents of Flanery, Reedus and Rocco, who hope to be involved in the creative process as development moves forward. An all-too brief trailer followed the rambunctious Q&A, showing off just thirty seconds of a grimy alleyway, and a still shot of the two protagonists(?) dishing out their trademark execution to a mark. An off-screen video of the trailer is posted below.
