Is it too late to get Christopher Nolan to direct this? Back in March is was officially announced that WWE would be producing Leprechaun: Origins, a remake of Leprechaun for Lionsgate, and that WWE wrestler Hornswoggle had been cast in the title role. It was also announced that Lionsgate and WWE Films had hired Harris Wilkinson to write the script.
Recently Crave spoke to WWE president Michael Luisi, who offered, “The tone is going to be a little darker, a little more traditional horror than the Warwick Davis ones that people remember, trying to find a way to please fans of that genre but at the same time this is really being played for scares.”
Luisi also conceded that the script is still in development. I’d like to note here that Wilkinson will have been given roughly 500% more time to write the new Leprechaun movie than Darabont was given to write the new Godzilla draft.
