  • Leprechaun Returns (2019)

    Forget that recent attempt at a reboot. The original franchise is back.

    Syfy Wire just announced that next year will see the premiere of Leprechaun Returns, a new installment in the *original* series directed by Steven Kostanski (The Void)!

    Sadly, Warwick Davis is not returning for the new film, but a teaser that comes along with the announcement suggests that Kostanski did a damn fine job casting his replacement.

    Linden Porco takes over from Davis for Returns, wherein…

    “The film picks up 25 years after the events of the 1993 original, which found a maniacal Leprechaun doing whatever it takes (including committing gruesome murder) to track down his stolen pot of gold. Leprechaun Returns finds the leprechaun revived in the modern day when a group of sorority girls unwittingly awaken him while tearing down a cabin to build a new sorority house.”

    The cast is led by Taylor Spreitler (Kevin Can Wait) as Lila; Pepi Sonuga (Ash vs Evil Dead) as Katie; and Sai Bennett (Lake Placid: Legacy) as Rose. The film will also bring back a co-star from the original film in Mark Holton, who will reprise his role as Ozzie, the group’s goofball friend almost killed by the leprechaun. Additional co-stars include Emily Reid as Meredith; Oliver Llewellyn-Jenkins as Matt; and Ben McGregor as Andy.

    The new sequel is written by Suzanne Keilly (“Ash vs Evil Dead”).

    Leprechaun Returns, a Syfy Exclusive, will premiere in March 2019.


    No Warwick is a shame although I don't blame him if he's not interested in putting on all the makeup. Mark Holton returning is unexpected. At least it's a return to the series and ignores the reboot.
    People hyping up latest comic book movie to be the GOAT and I'm like "psshh, you guys must not have seen Bigfoot rip off a man's dick before in 1980's Night of the Demon."
