Last year, you heard that Lionsgate and WWE Studios were rebooting LEPRECHAUN
No word yet on who will direct, who will write and who will star in this new take, it’d be kinda cool though if they could get Aniston again just for some small cameo.
One of the famous little people in the world Warwick Davis, who played Griphook in Harry Potter movies, was the star of LEPRECHAUN franchise, in all six films, Leprechaun 1, Leprechaun 2, Leprechaun 3, Leprechaun 4: In Space, Leprechaun 5: In the Hood and Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood.
Now, CraveOnline asked WWE Studios Pres. Michael Luisi what their tone is for this reboot..
“The tone is going to be a little darker,”
“A little more traditional horror than the Warwick Davis ones that people remember. [We’re] trying to find a way to please fans of that genre but, at the same time, this is really being played for scares.”
Sadly the new Leprechaun will be played by WWE star Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postle, but there is a possibility that Davis may make a cameo, and I hope that happens so as to honor Davis’ contributions to the franchise, it’s only fair that way.
