WWE Studios President Michael Luisi recently spoke with Crave Online about the proposed "Leprechaun" reboot they are working on with Lionsgate.
"The tone is going to be a little darker. A little more traditional horror than the Warwick Davis ones that people remember.
[We're] trying to find a way to please fans of that genre but, at the same time, this is really being played for scares."
WWE star Dylan "Hornswoggle" Postl is attached to play the creature. The project is still being scripted, but it is confirmed to be a complete reboot that will ignore all the mythology of the previous film series.
