Official! Hornswoggle Playing the Leprechaun in WWE / Lionsgate Reboot





Yeah, we suppose it was pretty inevitable. Once news of the WWE partnering with Lionsgate on a Leprechaun remake broke, in the back of our heads we all knew full well what their motivations were... put their tiny Irish nogoodnik into a horror movie.

WWE talent Dylan Postl, aka Hornswoggle, took to Twitter recently to drop the news:

"The #swogglesecret that I’ve been hinting at all week is that in March 2013 I will be starring in Leprechaun:Origins by WWE Studios!!!"

Leprechaun was originally released theatrically in 1993 and went on to inexplicably become a franchise consisting of six movies. Warick Davis played the titular character in every movie so I have to ask: Are there any die-hard Leprechaun fans out there who want to see him comeback? Yeah, well you're shit out of ... luck!

Thanks to DC reader Jinx for the heads-up!

NEXT STORY

Leprechaun jumped the shark about 5 minutes into the first movie. Then, it somehow emerged for one manically brilliant moment of extreme, over-the-top cheesiness with Lephrechaun in Space. Was it terrible? Of course, but it was so delightfully ridiculous that I have watched it several times. Then, they sent him to the "hood." Twice.

The Leprechaun vs. Leprechaun idea sounds kind of awesome, but for anything else, no chance I'll be caught dead watching this.

Of course, that's what I said about all the others, and somehow I've seen them all. And, sadly, when it comes to the first four, I don't hate them nearly as much as I should, or as my comment above suggests.
