— There were 18,088 fans in attendance at The Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia for this week’s RAW. That was a legit sellout.
— Warwick Davis has spoken out against the planned WWE/Lionsgate remake of Leprechaun. Davis said the film shouldn’t be touched and that a sequel would be a better option. “I think it would be a shame to remake the original ‘Leprechaun’ film,” he said. “It is a cult classic. It should not be touched in the same way the[y] should not have remade ‘Psycho’. I think there is a lot more to explore with the character, so that should be done with a sequel.” Davis also spoke about where he’d like to do a sequel, joking that he talked to Johnny Depp about a pirate-themed one. “I pitched the ‘Lep vs. Pirates’ idea to Johnny Depp while we were shooting ‘Life’s Too Short.’ He didn’t say much. There is so much potential for the character. I think a road movie would be fun. The Lep is best when encountering different types of people. I’d also like to see a female Leprechaun – she’s even meaner though and makes the original leprechaun seem soft. I’d love to play her too!”
