I’m sure you guys remember the announcement of a reboot of the Leprechaun franchise? Well, if not, WWE Films are in control and Warwick Davis is out. In his place is WWE’s own wrestler Hornswaggle in the title role. But what about the film itself?
Recently WWE president Michael Luisi spoke with Crave and gave them a little insight into the direction they’re planning to take.
“The tone is going to be a little darker, a little more traditional horror than the Warwick Davis ones that people remember, trying to find a way to please fans of that genre but at the same time this is really being played for scares.”
It may just be me, but I’m going to find it hard to take this one more seriously with Hornswaggle playing the title role. But who am I to judge? I guess we will have to wait and see.
