It’s been well known that Lionsgate has wanted to revisit their Leprechaun franchise for some time now. Even Saw II-IV director Darren Lynn Bousman openly campaigned his involvement a few years back.
Launched in 1993 by Trimark (and acquired by Lionsgate through their acquisition of Artisan Entertainment back in 2000), the first film featured Warwick Davis as the pint-sized wish-making killer and also featured the debut of a young and sexy Jennifer Aniston.
It has taken Lionsgate less than 10 years to pound out multiple sequels (including Leprechaun 2, Leprechaun 3, Leprechaun 4: In Space, Leprechaun in the Hood and Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood) and now to reboot it.
Lionsgate is pacting with WWE Studios on a two-film deal that includes a brand new Leprechaun, with plans on making various horror fans wishes come true by 2013. Variety adds that there is currently no writer, director or cast attached.
