The sad truth about life is that none of us, save for Hulk Hogan, is immortal. We're all gonna die. Hopefully in less horrific ways than the fashion in which characters die in the movies we all spend so much time watching... but nevertheless, there's going to come a day where and each and every one of us meets up with the Grim Reaper. And I don't know about you, but I don't want to take unlived experiences to the grave with me. Which is why, like Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson before me, I keep my very own Bucket List in my desk drawer, a collection of different experiences I want to have, both big and small, before my time on this Earth is finished. It's unlikely that I'll ever cross all of them off, but I'm damn sure going to try. In the event that you don't have »

I’ve never actually seen any of the “Leprechaun” movies. No, that’s not true. I’ve never actually seen any of the “Leprechaun” movies all the way through. I think I saw one where he went into the ‘hood, which was called, appropriately enough, “Leprechaun in The Hood”. I don’t really recall what I saw, though I do remember that Ice-t was in it, and apparently the installment did enough business that the producers did a sequel to the sequel called “Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood”. I’m not sure why they decided to “slang out” the title, though, when they didn’t do it with the first “Hood” sequel. Creative decisions, I suppose. Check out the box art to your left if you think I’m making this up. I can assure you, I am not. See? Anyways, according to trade reports, the WWE and their partners »
You’ve probably not heard of Lipovsky either, but he appeared on the reality series On The Lot, in which aspiring filmmakers competed for a deal with DreamWorks. Does this mean that Spielberg has anything to do with the reboot? Nope. But it gives the guy a little bit of credibility.
Right. Lipovsky will direct the reboot of the 1993 classic (?) Leprechaun. The original starred Warwick Davis (who else?) as an evil little Irish caricature searching for his pot o’gold and … well, pretty much killing everyone in the process. The reboot will star WWE star Hornswoggle as the title character. It’s being produced, unsurprisingly, by WWE Studios and Lionsgate, so … yeah.

Here's the news that you have been waiting patiently for! That's right, kids! Hide your pots of gold (and - in reference to Leprechaun in the Hood - hide your pot too); a director has been found for WWE Films' Leprechaun reboot!
According to The Wrap, Lionsgate and WWE Studios have set visual-effects veteran Zach Lipovsky to direct Leprechaun, the long-awaited reboot of the successful horror franchise that launched the career of Jennifer Aniston.
Lipovsky was discovered as a contestant on Steven Spielberg and Mark Burnett's short-lived reality series "On the Lot," which saw 16 aspiring filmmakers compete for a development deal with DreamWorks.
The original Leprechaun, which featured comedic elements, followed an evil leprechaun searching for his pot of gold while avoiding four-leaf clovers. “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 »

With the reboot of Evil Dead being so successful, maybe other franchises in horror have a chance, right? Allow me to present exhibit A: Leprechaun. Is there any possible way that you could reboot this franchise which launched the career of Jennifer Aniston (no, that was Friends) and had "Leprechaun In The Hood" as part of the series of films? It was a horror comedy that wasn't meant to be serious in any sort of way. How could you be with a tag line like "Your luck just »

Warwick Davis has been a part of our lives as movie fans for three decades, starring as Wicket the Ewok in "Return of the Jedi" and later as the title character in "Willow" before starring in the "Leprechaun" movies and in every "Harry Potter" film in the franchise. Quite the career!
The following mini-biography marks a few significant dates in Davis' life, complete with fun facts that you may not have known about the esteemed English thespian.
February 3, 1970: Born to narcissist parents Warren and Harwick Davis in Epsom, Surrey, UK.
April 25, 1977: Sees "Star Wars" for the first time with his older brother, Meriweather. During the show, he allegedly points to the screen and whispers something to Meriweather that would seem to have amazingly prophesied his future: "One day, Meriweather, I'm going to play a murderous leprechaun in a film franchise that will launch the career of a promising young actress named Jennifer Aniston. »

"I have not come to play with fruit. I just want me magic flute!"
So sayeth the ever-rhyming Irish demon played by Warwick Davis in "Leprechaun in the Hood" (2000) to the lusty cross-dressing Miss Fontaine (Lobo Sebastian). A little later, these two engage in a passionate romp under the sheets during which Miss Fontaine's cries of pain will be mistaken for gasps of orgasmic delight by at least one bewildered passer-by as the Leprechaun claims another victim.
It's astonishingly tasteless, crass and almost (almost) admirably brazen ... which kind of sums up the "Leprechaun" series in its entirety. And that's a pretty impressive entirety — there are six of the damn things in that pot of cinematic gold, after all.

From the lobby scene in The Matrix to Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader squaring off in The Empire Strikes Back, the most effective movie fight scenes generally rely on objects designed for inflicting harm.
Every once in a while though, a gun runs out of bullets, a knife gets kicked out of reach, or a screenwriter becomes bored. The result is an impractical, yet effective use of a common object as a weapon.
"Did he really just beat that man to death with a dildo?" He sure did -- and that's not even the weirdest improvised weapon in our supercut above. Enjoy!
