Check out the first clip from WWE Studios and Lionsgate’s Leprechaun: Origins, which stars wrestler Hornswoggle (Dylan Postl) as the title character, in limited theaters August 22. The prequel is also scheduled to hit VOD on August 26th and DVD/Blu on September 30th.
In the clip, a local talks about Irish folklore before it’s revealed that the group will be heading to a cabin in the woods. Sigh.
Also starring Stephanie Bennett (Grave Encounters 2), Andrew Dunbar (Alien Trespass), Melissa Roxburgh (Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days) and Brendan Fletcher (Freddy vs Jason), Leprechaun: Origins was written by Harris Wilkinson and directed by Zach Lipovsky.
“Backpacking through the lush Irish countryside, two unsuspecting young couples discover a town’s chilling secret. Ben (Dunbar), Sophie (Bennet), David (Fletcher) and Jeni (Roxburgh) quickly discover the idyllic land is not what it appears to be when the town’s residents offer the hikers an old cabin at the edge of the woods. Soon, the friends will find that one of Ireland’s most famous legends is a terrifying reality.”
Special features on the home video releases include both the “Leprechaun: An Icon Reborn” featurette and “Leprechaun: Behind the Blood” featurette.
