WWE & Lionsgate Rebooting Leprechaun Franchise


With less than three weeks until WrestleMania 28, we are going to become insanely busy during the next few weeks. We realize a lot of you only visit the site on Monday and Tuesday for backstage RAW/SD news but you’ll want to check back in often as we head towards and beyond ‘Mania. There will likely be 35+ posts per day so if you want to keep up with all the backstage news, you’ll need to check back in numerous times on a daily basis. That includes the weekend, etc. Thanks for your continued support of the website. You guys are the best and we couldn’t do this without you!


In news that is sure to make Hornswoggle fans happy, Lionsgate and WWE Studios are set to make a reboot of Leprechaun. The original film starred Warwick Davis as an evil Leprechaun who is captured for his gold and goes on a murderous rampage after being freed. The film was one of Jennifer Aniston’s first starring roles and spawned five sequels and a comic book series.

There is currently no writer, director or stars attached to the film, which is set for a 2013 release with a sequel contracted as well.
