WWE Studios has released a promo image of the evil leprechaun creature from their upcoming film Leprechaun: Origins. I guess even leprechauns need an origin story. The studio revealed the image at Comic-Con this week, and it doesn't look like any kind of leprechaun I've ever seen before. Personally, I think it looks kind of ridiculous.
The story centers on "two young couples who while backpacking through Ireland, discover a town’s chilling secret inside an old cabin at the edge of the woods." Of course the monstrous-looking leprechaun is going to put them through hell.
The movie was directed by Zach Lipovsky, and it stars Dylan Postl, who is also known as WWE wrestler “Hornswoggle.” Brendan Fletcher, Teach Grant, Andrew Dunbar, Stephanie Bennett, and Melissa Roxburgh also star.
The movie will be released on VOD and Digital HD platforms on August 26th, and Blu-ray and DVD on September 30th.
