Warwick Davis Against Leprechaun Remake – Pitches Sequel Idea

Chris Savage

With the remake of the Leprechaun announced, original star of the films Warwick Davis has made his feelings known while also given us and the powers that be an idea for a new Leprechaun movie.

Warwick Davis, who starred in the Leprechaun films took to Facebook to promote the re-release of the Leprechaun films through Charter Communications. Here it was a live chat between Davis and fans of the franchise and where he gave us his idea as well as his thoughts on the remake.

“I think it would be a shame to remake the original ‘Leprechaun’ film. It is a cult classic. It should not be touched in the same way the(y) should not have remade ‘Psycho’ I think there is a lot more to explore with the character, so that should be done with a sequel.”

I’m just wondering is there anything else the Leprechaun could actually do or go, I mean he has been to Da Hood and he even ventured into space! However, Warwick has the answer…

“I pitched the ‘Lep vs. Pirates’ idea to Johnny Depp while we were shooting ‘Life’s Too Short’. He didn’t say much. There is so much potential for the character. I think a road movie would be fun. The Lep is best when encountering different types of people. I’d also like to see a female Leprechaun – she’s even meaner though and makes the original leprechaun seem soft. I’d love to play her too!”

He even mentioned the idea of the “Lep vs. Freddy” idea too.

He could just be messing around, but who knows, what’s even crazier is that it wouldn’t┬ásurprise┬áme if Hollywood took him up on the idea.

        Leprechaun and Psycho used in the same sentence? … uuhh, okay dude, right. While Psycho will go down in the annals of horror greatness, Leprechaun on the other hand will go down in, or should I say “up” in an anal cavity.
