First Poster Released for 'Leprechaun: Origins'

The WWE has released the first official poster for their new film "Leprechaun: Origins." Starring Stephanie Bennett, Adam Boys, Bruce Blain, Teach Grant, Brendan Fletcher and WWE Superstar Dylan "Hornswoggle" Postl as the murderous title character.

While the exact plot of Harrison Wilkinson's script is being guarded like a pot of gold, WWE President Michael Luisi revealed in an interview, "The tone [of Origins] is going to be a little darker, a little more traditional horror than the Warwick Davis ones that people remember, trying to find a way to please fans of that genre; but at the same time this is really being played for scares."

For fans of the campy Warwick Davis flicks, what do you think of this darker reboot? Personally, I am equal parts excited and wary. The original, despite it's cheese factor, scared the bejeezus out of me and had me on a constant look out for four leaf clovers, just in case.

At the moment, there is no set release date, but a summer release is expected. Here's a quick sneak peek from the WWE that was released on St. Patrick's Day!
