Lionsgate loves Leprachauns

2 min read

What, you thought that we would skip out on Saint Patricks day without mentioning one of the most horrible film franchises to ever shillelagh a culture in the process?

Like any fan of bad horror/thriller/assorted cheeses, Leprechaun will always hold a special place in my heart, from its original debut that introduced the world to Jennifer Aniston, to its beyond crazy sequels that took the Warwick Davis portrayed imp into the ghetto, and even into space itself.

And now, the pot of gold obsessed midget is making a return.

Leprechaun will be getting the reboot treatment courtesy of Lionsgate and WWE Studios, you know, those guys who pumped out films like See no evil, The Condemned (Which I actually enjoyed) and shudder, The Chaperone.

“We’ve been looking for ways to continue our relationship with Lionsgate,” WWE head Michael Luisi said to Variety.”And we saw Leprechaun as the perfect opportunity to take a well-known franchise and put a modern-day spin on it.

“This is a property we believe our audience will respond to, and we continue to look for ways to surprise and engage them.” While it’s unclear yet on cast, script and directing details, I’d wager a hundred body-slams that WWE Studios will make use of that other irish-themed vertically challenged performer, Hornswaggle for the lead role, for the planned 2013 release.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
