I drank too many Shamrock shakes from McDonalds tonight (they are flippin’ delicious). I’m in such a green-sugared induced coma that tonights story is either real or it’s all happening in my frap freezed brain. Nah, this news is far to stupid for my retard mind to make up.
St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend. And wouldn’t you know it, here’s comes the WWE (Yes, that one) to ruin it with news of a horror movie remake.
WWE (really, that one) and Lionsgate are teaming up to remake Leprechaun, the 90’s horror classic about a evil fucking Leprechaun who tortures a young Jennifer Aniston.
Variety broke the news of the deal, which comes as part one of a two-film deal between WWE and Lionsgate. Head of WWE Studios, Michael Luisi, said the following about the remake:
We have been looking for ways to continue our relationship with Lionsgate and we saw ‘Leprechaun’ as the perfect opportunity to take a well-known franchise and put a modern-day spin on it. This is a property that we believe our audience will respond to and we continue to look for ways to surprise and engage them.
While no director, screenwriter or actors are attached, they’re hoping for a 2013 release
I am outraged. How can they remake this classic franchise? I hope Warwick Davis dons his Leprechaun make-up, marches on down to WWE headquarters and shits in their morning cereal. Lucky Charms cereal of course.
Actually, now that I think about it. This remake can’t be any worse than Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood. So fuck it, let it happen. All I ask is that Hornswaggle be involved.
