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

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
Murtogg:
This dock is off-limits to civilians.
Jack Sparrow:
I'm terribly sorry, I didn't know. If I see one, I shall inform you immediately.
[Jack makes to continue but is blocked by Murtogg and Mullroy]
Jack Sparrow:
Apparently there's some sort of high-toned and fancy to-do up at the fort, eh? How could it be that two upstanding gentlemen, such as yourselves, did not merit an invitation?
Murtogg:
Someone's got to make sure that this dock stays off-limits to civilians.
Jack Sparrow:
It's a fine goal, to be sure. But it seems to me... that a ship like that one, makes this one here seem a bit superfluous, really.
Murtogg:
Oh, the Dauntless is the power in these waters, true enough. But there's no ship as can match the Interceptor for speed.
Jack Sparrow:
I've heard of one, supposed to be very fast, nigh uncatchable: The Black Pearl.
Mullroy:
Well, there's no real ship as can match the Interceptor.
Murtogg:
The Black Pearl is a real ship.
Mullroy:
No, it's not.
Murtogg:
Yes it is, I've seen it.
Mullroy:
You've seen it?
Murtogg:
Yes.
Mullroy:
You haven't seen it.
Murtogg:
Yes, I have.
Mullroy:
You've seen a ship with black sails that's crewed by the damned, and captained by a man so evil that Hell itself spat him back out?
Murtogg:
No.
Mullroy:
No.
Murtogg:
But I have seen a ship with black sails.
[Jack quietly slips passed them unnoticed]
Mullroy:
Oh, and no ship that's not crewed by the damned and captained by a man so evil that Hell itself spat him back out could possibly have black sails, therefore couldn't possibly be any other ship than the Black Pearl. Is that what you're telling me?
Murtogg:
[nods] No.
Mullroy:
Like I said, there's no real ship as can match the Interceptor.
