While the world continues to wonder if Warwick Davis will ever don his leprechaun garb again, After Dark Originals and Syfy are teaming up to bring a different killer leprechaun to life in Red Clover. Billy Zane and William Devane better stock up on Lucky Charms cereal pronto.
This Syfy flick originally titled both St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun and just simply Leprechaun (or Leprecahn as the American Film Market website initially misspelled it) has now undergone yet another title change to Red Clover, as was just announced by director Drew Daywalt on his Facebook page.
Daywalt is best known for a series of horror short films and for having directed a few episodes of MTV’s “Death Valley”. Red Clover will mark his first foray into feature filmmaking. The script was penned by fellow horror filmmaker Anthony C. Ferrante (Boo!, Scream of the Banshee).
Sixty-six years ago the town of Irish Channel in Louisiana was the site of a horrible massacre on St. Patrick’s Day. Some blame a terrible storm that blew through the town, but those that were there don’t speak of the truth. Due to petty superstitions St. Patrick’s Day festivities were banned for the last 66 years, but now the new Mayor wants to tempt fate and celebrate.
Those facing the ire of this little Irish hellraiser terrorizing Cajun country will include Billy Zane (Titanic), William Devane (“24”), relative newcomer Kelly Washington, Courtney Halverson (“Death Valley”), Azure Parsons (“Death Valley”), Matty Ferraro (“The Lair”), and actor-stuntman Kevin Mangold.
St. Patrick’s Day 2012 is on March 17th so it remains to be seen if they can finish post-production for Syfy to have it on the air in time for this year’s holiday or if we’ll have to wait until a later date to see this newest lethal leprechaun spread a little Irish fear.
