Darren Lynn Bousman STILL Wants To Direct New LEPRECHAUN Movie

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day. You know that means. Director Darren Lynn Bousman was out on Twitter campaigning for his chance to tackle Leprechaun.

This year, he tweets: “So, Lionsgate… if Spiral is a success, can we talk about finally letting me have the Leprechaun franchise and trying a little something something with it? Just saying?! (For the last ten years). Love you!

Check out his tweet below.

The original flick told the tale of Dan O’Grady who steals 100 gold coins from a leprechaun (Warwick Davis) while on vacation in Ireland. The leprechaun follows him home, but Dan locks the murderous midget in a crate, held at bay by a four-leaf clover. Ten years later, J.D. Redding and his daughter, Tory (Jennifer Aniston), rent O’Grady’s property for the summer. When their new neighbors accidentally release the leprechaun, he goes on a murderous rampage to reclaim his gold.

Written and directed by Mark Jones, the flick is rated R for horror violence, and language. Jennifer Aniston stars along with Ken Olandt, Mark Holton, and Warwick Davis as the Leprechaun
