Another unnecessary reboot on its way.
Lionsgate and WWE Studios are teaming up for a reboot of the 1993 indie horror classic ‘Leprechaun,’ reports Variety.
Starring Warwick Davis and Jennifer Aniston – in one of her first starring roles – the film follows an evil, sadistic Leprechaun who goes on a killing rampage in search of his beloved pot of gold.
A 2013 release is being eyed, though there is currently no writer, director or cast attached.
Talking to Variety, WWE head Michael Luisi said:
“We have been looking for ways to continue our relationship with Lionsgate and we saw ‘Leprechaun’ as the perfect opportunity to take a well-known franchise and put a modern-day spin on it. This is a property that we believe our audience will respond to and we continue to look for ways to surprise and engage them.”
