There Will be a ‘Leprechaun’ Remake by the WWE
So you need an idea for a movie, but you don't want to have to go through the arduous process of actually creating a new and original plot. So you lazily do a remake of a very tired, never critically acclaimed franchise, like “Leprechaun.” But you want to spice it up a bit so you incorporate World Wrestling Entertainment to really put the film over the top. This is exactly what Lionsgate studios have done. The two huge entertainment companies will try to get lucky by rebooting the 1993 horror/comedy movie “Leprechaun.” The film is set for a 2013 release despite not having a writer, director or cast. This is the same “Leprechaun” movie that from 1993-2003 had six different films of the insane Irishman. In the films the Leprechaun went to the “hood” twice, Vegas, and even space!
Who will play the Leprechaun? My guess is the miniature wrestler Hornswoggle who stands in at 4'4″. I fully expect the WWE to feature their wrestlers in the movie for publicity. Maybe the Rock can demand his pot o' gold or he'll give the little guy a The People's Elbow.
Here's a Leprechaun fun fact: the comedy horror movie was Jennifer Aniston's very first movie and probably better than “He's Just Not That Into You.”
