As we previously reported, a Leprechaun sequel is on the way and it will be a direct sequel to the first film, picking up where the original left off. The aptly titled Leprechaun Returns will be available on December 11th from LionsGate Home Entertainment.
The bad news is that Warwick Davis will not be returning for the latest outing. Taking the reins as The Leprechaun, will be Linden Porco (Cult of Chucky, Channel Zero). Also starring are Taylor Spreitler (Amityville: The Awakening), and Mark Holton (Leprechaun). Note that this marks Holton’s first return to the franchise since his appearance in the 1993 original.
Steven Kostanski (The Void) directs the upcoming film from a script penned by Ash vs. Evil Dead scribe, Suzanne Keilly.
Leprechaun Returns follows the sisters of Alpha Upsilon, who make the fateful decision to source their water from an old well. In doing so, they awaken a homicidal leprechaun searching for his pot of gold.
