Leprechaun Returns poster goes back to the well

Recently we hear word around the old horror-news campfire that SyFy is all set to reboot such classic creature features as KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE and CRITTERS. We have more than a feeling that this is all true as SyFy is all about rebooting their past hits such as LAKE PLACID and let's not forget LEPRECHAUN.

Yes, if you somehow missed the news last St. Patrick's Day, LEPRECHAUN RETURNS is in the works with Steven Kostanski (THE VOID) directing an original-ish screenplay by Suzanne Keilly (ASH VS EVIL DEAD). And today we have the film's teaser poster to share with you guys via our buddies over at B-D. You can check it out below and then make sure to let us know what you think! Until then you can find all the info you need on this reboot below, including VOD and DVD release dates.

Linden Porco (CHANNEL ZERO: BUTCHER'S BLOCK) takes over the titular role from Warwick Davis in the film which follows this fun synopsis:

The deadly, wisecracking Leprechaun is back in all his gory glory. When the sorority sisters of the Alpha Upsilon house decide to go green and use an old well as their water source, they unwittingly awaken a pint-sized, green-clad monster. The Leprechaun wants a pot of gold buried near the sorority house, but first, he must recover his powers with a killing spree—and only the girls of AU can stop him.

This reboot, not unlike Blumhouse's HALLOWEEN, ignores all the sequels following the original film and picks right up when the original left off, albeit 25 years later. Porco's prey includes Taylor Spreitler, Pepi Sonuga, Sai Bennett, and original LEPRECHAUN star Mark Holton. LEPRECHAUN RETURNS crawls its terrifying little ass out of a well in the middle of the woods and onto VOD and DVD via Lionsgate on December 11th
