First Leprechaun: Origins Footage Will Be Revealed on St. Patrick's DayIt’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything about Leprechaun: Origins, which is set to reboot the always fun Leprechaun franchise. Though we’ve got nothing for ya today, we do have an exciting announcement to share so read on for details!

We’ve just learned that, perfectly timed with St. Patrick’s Day, WWE Studios will be unveiling the very first clip from the film, which stars WWE superstar Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl as the title character, this coming Monday night.

Check out the announcement video below, and look for the film to be released sometime this summer!

Leprechaun: Origins also stars Stephanie Bennett, Teach Grant (The Tall Man, Devour, Repeaters, “Cult”), Bruce Blain (“Supernatural”), Adam Boys, and Brendan Fletcher (“The Killing,” Freddy vs. Jason, 13 Eerie).

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 a way to please fans of that genre; but at the same time this is really being played for scares,” said WWE president Michael Luisi in an earlier interview.

Producers are keeping details of Harris Wilkinson’s script under wraps to keep the franchise’s new direction a secret.
