"Leprechaun" Prequel/Reboot Receives Star & Release Date
We’ve been so busy with horror club and posting reviews that Slasher Studios hasn’t had much time to post any news as of lately. Well, we have some pretty big news for you today to make up for that. Variety reports WWE Films is rebooting the Leprechaun franchise. Not only that but they have a release date, a working title and a star! The working title of the film is “Leprechaun: Origins” (one of the worst titles I’ve heard in a while) and it is set to slash up theaters in March 2013.
WWE also revealed its own “Hornswoggle” will star as the title character. Hornswoggle is known as David Postl outside of the WWE universe. No writer or director have been attached for the reboot as of yet. Lionsgate will finance as well as distribute. What are your thoughts on this reboot? It can’t be worse than the original? Can it?
