During his appearance on Dread Central Live, Leprechaun franchise creator Mark Jones (Scorned) talked a bit about his next horror project, Vamprechaun, and now he wants YOU to help deliver the goods!
“I actually have a new horror franchise that I came up with, and it actually may involve Warwick Davis,” Jones told co-hosts Staci Layne Wilson and Vanessa “Gore Whore” Gomez during the broadcast. “In it a vampire bites a Leprechaun, creating a Vamprechaun.”
“So now you have this little vampire, completely different character, completely different prosthetics design… Being that he’s little, he’ll be biting your ankles instead of your neck because he can’t reach it, and he gets all these women… It will be comedy-horror of course, and we’re in talks now trying to put that together. I think it will be the next big franchise, and I think Warwick’s fans would love it so if we make that happen, that will be next for me. We have a really good script so I think it’s gonna work.”
