WWE teased that it would be revealing the new look of their version of the infamous sinister Leprechaun at SDCC, and they made good on their promise today! The production company released the first poster for [Leprechaun: Origins](movie:390402) at an exclusive WWE Panel which took place earlier today, which will be released VOD and on digital platforms on August 26th.
The new Leprechaun will be played by Dylan Postl, AKA WWE wrestler “Hornswoggle,” and the film revolves around two backpacking couples in Ireland who stumble upon a town's terrible secret. Directed by Zach Lipovsky, the film will also star Brendan Fletcher, Teach Grant, Andrew Dunbar, Stephanie Bennett, and Melissa Roxburgh.
Personally, I think this image makes the leprechaun look like a cross between Voldemort and a really slimy lizard, but I guess that's why they don't pay me the big bucks to reboot franchises.
Leprechaun: Origins will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on September 30th.
