I suppose I ought to admit right now that I’ve never seen a Leprechaun film, not even the one with Jennifer Aniston that she seems ashamed of – even though it’s probably than most of the crap she went on to make. So I don’t know if I should be excited or worried that they’re doing another one, the teaser for which you can view below. The last installment Leprechaun: Origins was actually a reboot, but this new movie, which will premiere on SyFy, is another episode in the”original series”.
The film picks up 25 years after the events of the 1993 original, which found a maniacal Leprechaun doing whatever it takes (including committing gruesome murder) to track down his stolen pot of gold. Leprechaun Returns finds the leprechaun revived in the modern day when a group of sorority girls unwittingly awaken him while tearing down a cabin to build a new sorority house.
Linden Porco takes over the title role usually played by Warwick David though essayed by Dylan Postl in the remake. Steven Kostanski directs, Susan Kielly scripts, and Taylor Spreitler, Pepi Sonuga, and Sai Bennett also star, along with Mark Holton who will reprise his role as Ozzie from the original movie.
