Last October, we were the first to tell you Drew Daywalt was embarking on a feature film after having successfully terrorized folks with his slew of scary short films and episodes of MTV’s Death Valley. At the time, this project was merely known as St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun, or as it was going out as at the American Film Market, Leprechaun. Of course, the latter title leads you to believe the film is a remake of the Warwick Davis film…which it is not.
Daywalt’s production is an original script penned by Anthony C. Ferrante and is part of the After Dark Originals slate for this year. After the jump, you’ll discover the new title for his film along with the cast members involved.
Daywalt revealed, via his Facebook page last night, that the film is now entitled Red Clover. The director is now in post-production, editing away furiously.
Billy Zane, William Devane, Kelly Washington, Courtney Halverson, Azure Parsons, Matty Ferraro and Kevin Mangold.
Here’s a synopsis: Sixty-six years ago, the town of Irish Channel in Louisiana was the site of a horrible massacre on St. Patrick’s Day. Some blame a terrible storm that blew through the town, but those that were there don’t speak of the truth. Due to petty superstitions, St. Patrick’s Day festivities were banned for the last 66 years, but now, the new Mayor wants to tempt fate and celebrate.
