Hi, Bryan Here….

Okay, let me get this straight.  A 90’s horror film called ‘Leprechaun’ starring Warwick Davis and a young Jennifer Aniston is getting remade by the WWE?  WWE meaning World Wrestling Entertainment?  The same place that gave us Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock?  From way out of left field, this is absolutely correct.  So, yes, this is happening.  Let’s not forget we have several ‘Leprechaun’ films already in the library including: ‘Leprechaun in the Hood’ and ‘Leprechaun: Innnnn Spaaaaaace’!!! I can’t make this stuff up.  And just in time for St. Paddy’s Day.

Head of WWE Studios, Michael Luisi said according to Variety; “We have been looking for ways to continue our relationship with Lionsgate and we saw ‘Leprechaun’ as the perfect opportunity to take a well-known franchise and put a modern-day spin on it. This is a property that we believe our audience will respond to and we continue to look for ways to surprise and engage them.”

 

Wow.  I don’t even know what to say.  What would a modern day spin be like?  And would they get Warwick Davis back?  Or would they get their own WWE talent?  I’m thinking of former WWE champ Hornswoggle.  Ugghhh.  This is just insane news.  I was hoping for a Hellraiser reamke or that ‘Child’s Play remake I have been hearing about for years before ‘Leprechaun’, but you know what, I’ll see it.  Your thoughts?

Movie Quotes

Pulp Fiction (1994)
[Jules, Vincent and Jimmie are drinking coffee in Jimmie's kitchen]
Jules Winnfield:
Mmmm! Goddamn, Jimmie! This is some serious gourmet shit! Usually, me and Vince would be happy with some freeze-dried Taster's Choice right, but he springs this serious GOURMET shit on us! What flavor is this?
Jimmie:
Knock it off, Julie.
Jules Winnfield:
[pause] What?
Jimmie:
I don't need you to tell me how fucking good my coffee is, okay? I'm the one who buys it. I know how good it is. When Bonnie goes shopping she buys SHIT. I buy the gourmet expensive stuff because when I drink it I want to taste it. But you know what's on my mind right now? It AIN'T the coffee in my kitchen, it's the dead nigger in my garage.
Jules Winnfield:
Oh, Jimmie, don't even worry about that...
Jimmie:
No, No, No, No, let me ask you a question. When you came pulling in here, did you notice a sign out in front of my house that said Dead Nigger Storage?
Jules Winnfield:
Jimmie, you know I ain't seen no...
Jimmie:
Did you notice a sign out in front of my house that said Dead Nigger Storage?
Jules Winnfield:
[pause] No. I didn't.
Jimmie:
You know WHY you didn't see that sign?
Jules Winnfield:
Why?
Jimmie:
'Cause it ain't there, 'cause storing dead niggers ain't my fucking business, that's why!
