It’s time to do a little jig and celebrate the fact that the first official teaser one-sheet for Zach Lipovsky’s ‘Leprechaun: Origins’ has been uncovered. Whether of not the franchise needs rebooting is a question that seems to have been answered positively by Lionsgate along with WWE Studios whom have teamed up to bring us this new look version which is said to be “darker and a more traditional horror.” Warwick Davis (‘Life’s Too Short’), whom was fitted out in the fetching green attire for 6 of the previous installments, has been looked over this time around in favour of WWE’s own Hornswoggle Dylan Postl. Brendan Fletcher, Teach Grant, Andrew Dunbar, Stephanie Bennett, Bruce Blain and Adam Boys also star. Check out the new poster below.
No official synopsis has been released just yet but for now you can remind yourself of the plot for Mark Jones’ 1993 original version:
“When Dan O’Grady returns to the U.S. after stealing some Irish leprechaun’s pot of gold, he thinks he can settle down and enjoy his newfound wealth. He thought wrong. The leprechaun followed him and O’Grady barely gets away with his life, having locked the little monster in his basement. Ten years later, J.D. and his spoiled daughter Tory move in. By accident, the leprechaun is released and almost immediately the annoying creature starts to look for his gold, not displaying any respect for human life.”
