Leprechaun: Origins to Create a New Franchise?

leprechaun4You all know a new Leprechaun movie is currently in the works for WWE films with Dylan Postl (Hornswoggle) in the title role. But we don’t really know much else about the film. We have heard that this one will be darker, but is this one a remake, a sequel or what?

Well, Crave recently caught up with the director, Zach Lipovsky, and he ushered in some interesting details.

It’s basically a complete refresh, reboot. We’re not trying to copy or really do at all what the last one did. It kind of did what it was doing so well, that’s why they made so many of them, but we’re going a completely new direction and completely new world and everything which is why they were excited by what I brought to the table because I was pretty new to the whole Leprechaun thing myself. It was kind of what can we do to make something that’s a legitimate horror movie rather than something a bit more campy?

So, it looks as if we will be getting a new Leprechaun franchise which is doing away with all the camp aspects of the original franchise. I for one am pretty stoked for a more serious take, how about you?
