Another Leprechaun Sequel?
I've only seen a couple of the Leprechaun movies, but they were throughly enjoyable in the realm of "so bad, it's good" horror.
Word comes today that Darren Lynn Bousman, director of Saw II, Saw III, and the upcoming Repo! The Genetic Opera, is interested in taking a run at the franchise.
"I would do Leprechaun in a second. If Lionsgate is listening, give me Leprechaun. I would love to bring back the fun popcorn movie - extreme violence, extreme absurdity - but make it fun. [I'd send him] back to the old west. You send him in a time machine and transport him to the old west. There are gold rushes. There are gunfights. It's awesome! I have the whole thing already worked out!"
Sounds pretty sweet to me. Leprechaun has already visited space and "da hood" (twice!), so I'm down for watching him do quick-draw magic and kill some cowboys. Who all seen the leprechaun, say yeah!
