WWE Studios has tapped Zach Lipovsky to direct Leprechaun: Origins. We first reported on this project back in January, when WWE Superstar Dylan "Hornswoggle" Postl was announced to play the title character.
No story details have been released, but it has been confirmed that this will be a full reboot of the original 1993 Leprechaun, which starred Warwick Davis and Jennifer Aniston. Harris Wilkinson wrote the screenplay, with Erik Feig, Michael Paseornek, and John Sacchi producing, along with WWE Studios' Michael Luisi and Richard Lowell.
The original Leprechaun followed an evil leprechaun searching for a pot of gold while avoiding four-leaf clovers. The tone of the reboot is said to be much darker than the original.
