Read his comments below.

He tells ComicBook.com: “The Leprechaun movie, don’t ask stupid questions. It’s always the Leprechaun movie, and I’m gonna take this chance because I know Lionsgate is listening in that room over there, give me the fucking Leprechaun franchise. I mean, seriously, I’ve been asking for 15 years.”

He continued: “I’m not even joking you, I just love … my favorite subgenre of horror is fun horror movies, that are just fun and you smile and you high-five in theaters. There are moments of that in Spiral that are fun, with the Forrest Gump [discussion], but the Leprechaun movie, to me, is the epitome of a fun moviegoing experience. It’s ridiculous, it’s over the top, it’s gory, it’s violent, give that to me. What else are you gonna do with it?

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

Dan O’Grady steals 100 gold coins from Warwick Davis while on vacation in Ireland. Davis 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 Davis, he goes on a murderous rampage to reclaim his gold.


Do you want Bousman to deliver a new entry in the horror-comedy series?
