Leprechaun: Origins Gets a Trailer, Will Head Direct to DVD & VOD

By ON

Leprechaun Origins posterLeprechaun's search for gold and bloodshed will not be seen on the big screen. Rather, he'll resume his reign of terror on DVD and VOD when Leprechaun: Origins arrives on August 26th (VOD) and September 30th (DVD/Blu-ray). So much for that rumored "big screen return," eh? (Somewhere, Warwick Davis cackles at this.)

WWE Studios and Lionsgate are handling distribution and, this morning, EW has debuted the trailer which you can watch here.

Zach Lipovsky directs this entry which is said to be a more serious take on the horror icon. The film concerns some couples backpacking in Ireland who "quickly discover the idyllic land is not what it appears to be be when [a] town’s residents offer the hikers an old cabin at the edge of the woods. Soon, the friends will find that one of Ireland’s most famous legends is a terrifying reality."

Hornswoggle plays the malicious creature and look for Brendan Fletcher (Freddy vs. JasonGinger Snaps​), too!
