Leprechaun Hornswoggle

Briefly: World Wrestling Entertainment and Lionsgate have found a director for their reboot of the Leprechaun horror franchise. That man is Zach Lipovsky, best known for his starring role on Steven Spielberg’s TV show On The Lot. Lipovsky recently completed the SyFy Original Film Tasmanian Devils starring Danica McKellar.

Written by Harris Wilkinson, the reboot will star WWE star Hornswoggle (real name Dylan Postl, seen above) as the titular killer. Little is known about the reboot except the take is believed to be “darker” than previous entries. [The Wrap]

In this current remake-happy cinematic climate, that Gone With the Wind is being eyed for a do-over isn’t much of a shocker — but the name behind it certainly is. In an interview with NextMovie, former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff expressed his desire to star in a remake of the classic romance from 1939, and even offered up one idea about the casting.

Hasselhoff told the site that his manager had been unhappy with him for signing on to the ultra-campy Piranha 3DD. “He wants me to do a Knight Rider film or Nick Fury, which I was supposed to do, or a remake of Gone With the Wind,” Hasselhoff said. Later in the conversation, he brought up the potential Gone With the Wind project again. “Hopefully the Gone With the Wind will come, hopefully something great will happen.”

Naturally, the conversation then turned to who could tackle the iconic Scarlett O’Hara role opposite Hasselhoff’s Rhett Butler. Hasselhoff suggested Rachel Weisz, though he initially referred to her as “Rachel Rice.” “I think she’s hot,” he said.

After the jump, WWE’s Leprechaun remake hires a writer and Robocop star Joel Kinnaman offers up new details.
