The reboot of the “Leprechaun” horror franchise will scare audiences in theaters after all.

Lionsgate and WWE Studios, which had planned to release “Leprechaun: Origins” direct to home entertainment platforms on Aug. 26, will now also give the film a limited release in theaters on Aug. 22, after a presentation for the film was well received at Comic-Con in San Diego last month.

Sdcc Interview: Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl, star of Leprechaun: Origins

31 July 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

david j. moore chats with Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl, star of Leprechaun: Origins, at the San Diego Comic-Con…

At four feet, four inches, Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl might not seem like a likely candidate for professional wrestling, but he’s made his mark in WWE wrestling with a Cruiserweight Champion title on Smackdown! (2007) and other physical feats on WWE Raw. This year he’s made his crossover into films with an appearance in Muppets Most Wanted, and now with the WWE / Lionsgate joint venture of the horror film Leprechaun: Origins, which hopes to reignite interest in the horror franchise, which starred Warwick Davis. A separate, unrelated entity that stands on its own, Origins purports to be a straight-up horror film, with full-tilt gore, violence, and action, courtesy of the evil Leprechaun, played by the one and only Hornswoggle.

Sdcc Interview: Zach Lipovsky, director of Leprechaun: Origins

david j. moore chats with Zach Lipovsky, director of Leprechaun: Origins, at the San Diego Comic-Con…

WWE and Lionsgate have teamed up to reignite the Leprechaun horror franchise with Leprechaun: Origins, starring WWE superstar Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl, who plays the iconic title role. Director Zach Lipovsky, inspired by the works of Guillermo del Toro, intends to horrify and thrill audiences rather than to make them chuckle and laugh, and by all indications, Leprechaun: Origins is as far as the east is to the west in terms of being comparable to the films starring Warwick Davis.

david j. moore: A lot of people seem to think that Leprechaun Origins is a reboot of the well-known franchise. Would you care to clarify that a little bit?

Zach Lipovsky: The really cool thing about Leprechaun Origins is that it’s a totally new, fresh perspective on the whole Leprechaun franchise. It’s also a fully legitimate, »

First Look at Leprechaun from Leprechaun: Origins

27 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

WWE Studios has released a promo image of the evil leprechaun creature from their upcoming film Leprechaun: Origins. I guess even leprechauns need an origin story. The studio revealed the image at Comic-Con this week, and it doesn't look like any kind of leprechaun I've ever seen before. Personally, I think it looks kind of ridiculous. 

The story centers on "two young couples who while backpacking through Ireland, discover a town’s chilling secret inside an old cabin at the edge of the woods." Of course the monstrous-looking leprechaun is going to put them through hell.

The movie was directed by Zach Lipovsky, and it stars Dylan Postl, who is also known as WWE wrestler “Hornswoggle.” Brendan Fletcher, Teach Grant, Andrew Dunbar, Stephanie Bennett, and Melissa Roxburgh also star.

The movie will be released on VOD and Digital HD platforms on August 26th, and Blu-ray and DVD on September 30th. »

The Leprechaun has the ultimate luck of the Irish, but those who cross his path have some of the worst luck in the world. The horror franchise that began in 1993 will be reborn late this summer with Leprechaun: Origins, and a new trailer for the film has been released at Comic-Con, along with a first-look image of the Leprechaun.

This time around, the Leprechaun is portrayed by WWE Superstar Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl.

We have the film’s recently released Comic-Con trailer that gives us the first glimpses of the Leprechaun as he stalks a group of backpackers, as well as the first Leprechaun image revealed at Comic-Con (image courtesy of Variety!):

Sdcc – Our first look at Leprechaun in Leprechaun: Origins

25 July 2014 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming out from their panel during Comic-Con, we have our first look at Dylan Postl (aka WWE’s Hornswoggle) in the reboot of the Leprechaun franchise, Leprechaun: Origins. Here’s the image…

Quite the departure wouldn’t you say?

Director Zach Lipovsky said in an interview with Bloody Disgusting, “Our Leprechaun is completely different than what you’re used to seeing in movies and elsewhere,” Lipovsky continues. “Our approach was to make something that could really be out there. Something more organic and less fairy tale. Our creature is something that clearly has biological roots. That being said, it does have all the traits you’d expect from a Leprechaun… the pointy ears, the lust for gold… but ours also has the skin of… let’s say a naked mole rat. It has dead things hanging off of it… we took a very dark and disturbing approach when it came to bringing it to life. »
