The MacManus twins are coming to the George R. Brown Convention Center in June.
Houston's annual Comicpalooza, the Texas International Comic Con, announced Wednesday that this year's sci-fi and pop-culture convention will host a special, partial reunion of the cast of the 1999 cult hit "Boondock Saints," featuring stars Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery.
The popular, heavily-attended event takes place June 17-19 at the downtown convention center, 1001 Avenida De Las Americas. 
Reedus will be appearing only Saturday and Sunday, June 18-19, while Flanery and other cast members will be appearing all three days. 
Reedus and Flanery paired up as Connor and Murphy MacManus in the 1999 film, which gained a rabid cult following on the home-video market via positive word of mouth.

In addition to “Boondock Saints,” Reedus is a certified international star for his role as Daryl Dixon on AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” a confirmed worldwide hit. One of Reedus’ co-stars, Lennie James, who plays Morgan Jones on the show, was among the first convention guests announced months back.
Flanery, a Houston native, also starred in “The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day” in 2009 with Reedus.
Prior to his "Boondock" fame, Flanery had a lead role in the 1995 supernatural tale “Powder” filmed in the Houston area.
The “Boondock” reunion will be rounded out by Brian Mahoney and David Della Rocco. Clifton Collins Jr., who appeared in the sequel “The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day” in 2009, is also set to appear. The gritty character actor is also known for his turn as Perry Smith in the 2005 film “Capote” and for a major role in 2013’s “Pacific Rim.”

All that’s missing from this “Boondock” reunion is co-star Willem Dafoe. Maybe Comicpalooza has him hiding up its sleeve.
Information on prices and packages for the cast members can be found on the event’s official website.
Convention organizers announced last month that the cast of 1986’s “Aliens,” which includes Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen, and Michael Biehn, will also appear over that weekend.
Comicpalooza’s deck of cards is already stacked with previously announced guests Kate Beckinsale, wrestler Ric Flair, Tara Reid, Lou Ferrigno, Eliza Dushku, Walter Koenig, Kel Mitchell, David Prowse, authors Mercedes Lackey, Leslie Klinger and Sherrilyn Kenyon plus comic book notables Adam Kubert, John Ostrander and Mike Zeck.
