It’s been about six month since we’ve heard anything about the upcoming Leprechaun reboot from WWE and Lionsgate. It previously announced that Dylan Postl (Hornswoggle) would be replacing Warwick Davis and we have some new information from a recent interview with WWE Studios president Michael Luisi.

While speaking with Crave, Luisi mentioned that this movie will not take any existing elements from the original films and the plan is for a darker and scarier film than the original: “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.”

He also mentioned that they are open to having a role or cameo for Warwick Davis and that the script is still in development. Harris Wilkinson »
