Film News – Leprechaun Origins

Leprechaun poster

After the success of the last WWE Studios’ foray into horror movies, Oculus, comes their latest offering, due out in the summer…

Yes it’s a reboot of the Leprechaun series with Leprechaun Origins and WWE superstar Hornswoggle (Dylan Postle) will be taking the lead role, stepping into the small shoes of Warwick Davis.  The new poster, above, has just been released.  What do you think?

A very short clip was shown during RAW for St Patrick’s Day but didn’t show what the Leprechaun looked like.

Michael Luisi, president of WWE Studios said of the reboot, “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.”

No release date has yet been given, although a summer release is expected.
