Leprechaun vs. Candyman?! Seven Planned &#;Leprechaun&#; Movies That Never Happened

TheLeprechaun franchise is a fascinating oddity of a series. While Friday the 13th, Child’s Play, Halloween and the rest have all had their weird twists and turns, none of them have taken so many weird turns with such regularity as this one. It’s a bizarre series because, really, it isn’t a series in any way, shape or form. If anything, it’s an anthology.

Before now, with the recent release of Leprechaun Returns, there had previously been no direct sequels. Each one had only the unifying factor of Warwick Davis as the titular villain—with the exception of Leprechaun: Origins, of course—but none of them have any continuity from one to the next. Leprechaun Back 2 Tha Hood isn’t even a sequel to Leprechaun In the Hood. Yet, because of this, it’s one of the most creatively freeing independent horror series ever. All it takes to make a Leprechaun flick is to think of a setting or scenario that would be funnier if the Leprechaun were added to it, and (budget permitting) go from there.

Leprechaun: Origins stretched the loose confines of the franchise even further by removing the character played by Warwick Davis, the one thing present throughout each entry, and dropping the comedic approach in favor of a gritty, intentionally humorless and wholeheartedly serious take on the concept of the Leprechaun. Because of that, in addition to being the first direct sequel in the franchise ever, Leprechaun Returns is also the first “true” Leprechaun movie since

But, as luck would have it, for each tongue-in-cheek, cartoonish and pun-fueled Leprechaun movie we have, there’s another we don’t. There have been several attempts to take the franchise in new directions over the years that are still unseen to this day. These projects range from the expected “Leprechaun in X Scenario” movies to weird and inventive ideas that were only ever half formed and even crossover films with other iconic, but affordable horror characters.

It’s hard to know exactly what any of these movies would look like, but that’s precisely what makes them interesting. Each of these seven ideas are completely different from one another. Leprechaun is a series that’s at its best when it leans into its inherent goofiness and it’s easy to imagine many of these unmade projects would have adhered to that golden rule.

Leprechaun in the White House

When Brian Trenchard-Smith’s Leprechaun 3 was released, it was the most successful straight-to-video horror film of and it remains a fan-favorite even now. Because of that, he went right on to direct Leprechaun 4: In Space as well. Despite that one-two punch, Trenchard-Smith never directed another Leprechaun entry, though it was not for lack of trying. He did have a pitch for Leprechaun 5, as it turned out, and that idea would have seen the Leprechaun finding his way into the White House. As the director has noted, his version would have seen the little imp infiltrating an oafish but well-meaning first family. This was, after all, the Clinton era and Trenchard-Smith was a fan of the president at the time.

While the timing was far from as perfect a chance for satire as it would have been during the Bush years or, say, now, Leprechaun in the White House had a lot of potential just based on the concept alone. Unfortunately, Trimark thought it was “too out there,” which is pretty flabbergasting considering that this was coming right on the heels of the space movie. This isn’t the only horror franchise that tried to invade the White House, either, as Stuart Gordon also attempted to bring in Herbert West to reanimate the president in House of Re-Animator, which also unfortunately never happened.

Candyman vs. Leprechaun

Candyman is one of the best horror films of the s. It might even be the best. Leprechaun, for all of its charms, is not. Other than supernatural central characters with vaguely defined powers, these two franchises have nothing to do with one another. They’re completely different on a tonal and stylistic level. It seems absurd and impossible that this crossover would actually have ever been considered. But it was, at least briefly. Tony Todd has famously said that, in the slow period after Candyman 3 that saw us bereft of any Candyman film until the upcoming reboot, the studio pitched him on the idea of a crossover with the Leprechaun franchise as this was on the heels of Freddy vs. Jason and they happened to own both characters. But he immediately turned down the idea.

Obviously, there are a few things that have to be considered in this head-scratching matchup. First and foremost, what would the Candyman want with the Leprechaun’s gold? Would whoever stole the gold be somehow related to Candyman, as that was who the Candyman targeted in both of his sequels? What about the height difference? Tony Todd isn’t just a man of average height, he’s a tall, tall man. Considering the budget this would likely have been produced for, it’s hard to imagine that it would have made fans of either franchise happy.

Leprechaun in the Old West


This idea was frankly genius and I’m always going to be a little bit bummed that it never came to fruition. After In the Hood and Back 2 Tha Hood, a few years passed before there was any serious talk of another Leprechaun movie. When the idea finally came, it came from none other than Darren Lynn Bousman, who was just coming off the massive success of Saw II, III and IV at the time. The idea was to do a period piece, taking the Leprechaun back to the Old West in the days of the California Gold Rush.

It’s so simple and yet it’s so obvious. It’s still amazing that nobody else ever jumped on this, even after Bousman. Maybe if Returns reignites the franchise (and I hope it will) we’ll see another crack at this. The idea of the Leprechaun taking on old-timey gold miners is too good to go to waste. In terms of a creator coming off a huge success to tackle an oddball franchise, this feels very much like the “S. Craig Zahler is writing a Puppet Master movie” of its day&#; only that one actually wound up happening.

Warwick Davis’s Leprechaun Pitch

For many, it was bittersweet going into the new Leprechaun without Warwick Davis, as he has defined the role for so many years. There was a time when he was completely invested in the character, even after landing huge gigs like the Harry Potter films. After Back 2 Tha Hood, he had his own ideas for where the franchise should head, at one point noting that he wanted to finally be introduced to the Leprechaun’s entire family, including a wife, children, parents, etc. If it sounds like Eddie Murphy’s schtick in The Nutty Professor, well, that appears to be entirely the point.

It would have admittedly been hilarious to be introduced to the extended Leprechaun clan à la The Klumps, especially with Davis portraying each character himself. This would also have shed some new light on Leprechaun 2, which saw the Lep attempt to claim an unwilling bride, if he’d been neglecting to mention the fact that he was already married the whole time.

Leprechaun vs. Wishmaster

It’s much harder to say if this was ever actually in as remotely serious consideration as Candyman vs. Leprechaun. This idea first spread after an extremely well cut trailer started circulating the web, a fan trailer using clips from both franchises, which is commonplace and not usually an indicator that anything official might actually be happening. But there were a lot of rumors at the time that someone had cut the trailer to pitch as a sizzle reel to Lionsgate. The trailer even got spotlighted on Fangoria’s website and Ain’t It Cool News at the time.

The thing that gives the slightest bit of credibility to the idea is the fact that both franchises were under the same umbrella and that they had clearly wanted to try and cross over the Leprechaun with other properties given the attempt at Candyman. While that idea didn’t make any sense, Leprechaun vs. Wishmaster could honestly have worked. Both series had similar tones and styles, and cost about the same to make. A crossover between the two could have actually had potential to be, at the very least, an entertaining watch.

Leprechaun: Origins 2

Like most horror reboots, Leprechaun: Origins was planned to be the launching point for a whole new franchise. And, like most horror reboots, it wasn’t. Even now, most rebooted horror series have at best spawned one follow-up before simply being rebooted again. Both Halloween and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre did this. But when WWE films picked up the rights to Leprechaun, they wanted to take it seriously, both in terms of handling the property and in terms of their approach to the story. Most fans considered the latter idea to be a mistake. While there’s something interesting in the idea of the folkloric Leprechaun rather than the stereotypical one, this is a concept that needs a degree of humor in order to work.

The very intentional decision to strip what had always been a comedy-horror series of all its comedy in favor of doubling down on grit and intensity did not prove to be a hit. Even though newcomer Dylan &#;Hornswoggle&#; Postl was barely glimpsed and had no lines in the feature, he expressed serious interest in reprising the role for future sequels had they actually wound up happening. They never did.



Alright, this isn’t technically a Leprechaun movie but it might as well have been and definitely earns its spot on this list, considering that it’s a movie about a killer Leprechaun from the original feature&#;s writer/director Mark Jones, with the intention of Warwick Davis starring in the title role. It wouldn’t have had anything to do with previous Leprechaun movies, but again, they’d never had anything to do with each other in the first place. The central conceit is brutally simple and exactly what you get from the title: it’s about a Leprechaun that is also a vampire. The idea of Davis basically playing the same character he’d done six times before, but this time in a tuxedo and cape and drinking the blood of his victims between limericks, just sounds so entirely watchable. It’s a shame that this one never came to fruition.

To be fair, though, it came closer than anything else on this list. Jones was dead set on making Vamprechaun a reality and checked with the attorney he had hired for the project, who also helped him raise the funding for the film, to make sure there would be no legal troubles from the owners of the Leprechaun franchise. This all stopped dead when Jones then sued the man as, according to Jones, he turned out not to be a real attorney.

Here's Why Warwick Davis Passed on 'Leprechaun Returns'

The upcomingLeprechaun Returns serves as a direct sequel to the original film, though Linden Porco takes over the role from franchise regular Warwick Davis. As far as why Davis wasn't interested in returning to the series, the actor claims he's much less interested in the horror genre after becoming a father.

"You know what we did six Leprechaun films and around Halloween people always watch them and love them," Davis shared with BANG Showbiz. "Horror is an interesting medium, I think it's different when you have kids, you look at horror in a slightly different way. Since I finished the Leprechaun films I had kids and I see the world through their eyes and to be in a horror movie right now is probably not quite right, I will wait until my son turns 18 and then I'll do some horror again."

The original film developed a cult following due to its absurd combination of horror and humor, with Davis starring in five sequels in the franchise. Only the second film landed in theaters, with Davis' next films heading straight to video.

By the time the franchise got to its third sequel, it took its ludicrousness into the stratosphere, delivering audiences Leprechaun 4: In Space. The film wasn't the first '90s horror franchise to take their terrors off the planet, with Hellraiser: Bloodline leaving Earth behind in The fifth and six films returned the creature to earth with Leprechaun in the Hood and Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood.

In , the franchise earned itself the "gritty reboot" treatment with Leprechaun Origins. Davis was replaced by Dylan Postl, better known as the WWE persona Hornswoggle, who fans thought could help revive the series. Unfortunately, Origins took a different approach to the titular character, delivering a villain who was far more monstrous and didn't have a single line of dialogue. Compared to the wisecracking character fans grew to love over the course of the franchise, Origins fell short of expectations for the series.

In Leprechaun Returns, 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.

Leprechaun Returns hits VOD and Digital HD on December 11th.

Leprechaun Returns Director Wants to Make Another Sequel

Steven Kostanksi, director of the film Leprechaun Returns, says he's interested in doing another sequel if the opportunity arises.

Leprechaun Returnsdirector Steven Kostanski says that he wants to make another sequel in the long-running horror franchise. Known primarily for its use of famed actor Warwick Davis in the role of the evil Lubdan the Leprechaun, the concept was the brainchild of writer and director Mark Jones.

Though Jones only stuck around for the first entry in the series back in , Davis continued to return for five more sequels. However, by the time the franchise rebooted itself in with Leprechaun: Origins and later followed that up with ’s Leprechaun Returns, Davis had apparently had enough. He was subsequently replaced by Dylan Postl for Origins and with Linden Porco for Returns. While the series – which revolves around an evil Leprechaun who wants his stolen gold back – has never been a favorite of critics (or many horror fans, for that matter), it has managed to gain a significant cult following over the years. As with most cult films, the latter Leprechaun sequels tended to veer off the rails of what the original film established. This is likely why the series was rebooted in and why Leprechaun Returns was billed as a direct sequel to the first Leprechaun film.

Related: Why Warwick Davis Didn't Star In Leprechaun Returns

While speaking with ComicBook recently, Kostanski has made it clear he would love to return for another sequel. Kostanski was the last director to take the series on and he still has fond memories of that experience. The director said that, to date, he hasn’t heard any news regarding the possibility of a new Leprechaun film, but that if one were in the works, he’d be “into it.”

Well, I mean, the producer who hired me for Leprechaun was the one that hired me for the Day of the Dead [TV series], so I've continued that relationship. But as far as follow-up Leprechaun sequels, I haven't heard anything, but I would honestly be all over doing it. If it happens, I'd love to do it. I had a lot of fun making that movie, and it was a great experience. It gave me more of an appreciation for the Leprechaun movies. I feel we made something that fits into that mythology nicely, and I think there's a lot of room to continue it. I haven't heard anything, but if I was asked to do a follow-up, I’d be into it.

While this is potentially great news for Leprechaun fans, it likely won’t do much for those who still want to see Davis return to the series. Thanks to the extremely low budgets the Leprechaun films are typically made for, the possibility of yet another sequel really isn’t all that hard to imagine. After all, it’s only been three years since Kostanski delivered Leprechaun Returns. Compared to the eleven years that passed between the release of Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood and Leprechaun: Origins, there’s plenty of time to build something new. Whether or not another sequel will actually come to fruition, however, remains to be seen.

Demand is likely the biggest factor influencing the possibility of a follow up to Leprechaun Returns. If fans of the series are still up for seeing more Leprechaun carnage, then Kostanski’s eagerness to return would mean far more. Time will tell what happens with the franchise, but for now, there are still plenty of titles in the series to revisit.

Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood

film directed by Steven Ayromlooi

Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood (also known as Leprechaun 6: Back 2 tha Hood) is a American horror comedyslasher film written and directed by Steven Ayromlooi. It is the sixth installment of the Leprechaun series, and as of , it’s the last entry to star Warwick Davis in the title role. The film has a villainous leprechaun rampaging through an urban area and killing anyone in his path while looking for his gold, which was stolen by a group of youths who are using it to fulfill their wildest dreams. It is the first film in the series to be released by Lionsgate.


An animated prologue reveals the origins of Leprechauns, summoned by an ancient king to protect his gold. After the king's death, the Leprechauns returned to their places of origin, all except one Leprechaun (Warwick Davis) who became corrupted through the ages and obsessed with the gold he still guarded. In the present, Father Jacob (Willie C. Carpenter) finds the gold and intends to build a youth center. After a struggle, Jacob banishes Lubdan by summoning demonic hands to drag him underground, but dies of his injuries.

One year later, friends Emily Woodrow (Tangi Miller) and Lisa Duncan (Sherrie Jackson) have their fortune told by the clairvoyant Esmeralda (Donzaleigh Abernathy), who warns they will soon attain great wealth, but it must be denied as it will come at a great price and summon a terrible evil. At a barbecue at the abandoned youth center site with Lisa, stoner Jamie Davis (Page Kennedy) and ex-boyfriend-turned-drug dealer Rory Jackson (Laz Alonso), Emily falls through a hole and discovers the Leprechaun's gold, hidden by Father Jacob. Splitting the treasure, the four friends use the gold to fulfill their fantasies, unaware they have released the Leprechaun. He stalks the group, impaling a guest at Jamie's party with a bong and retrieving one of his coins, prompting the police to arrest Jamie. At the beauty salon where Emily works, the Leprechaun kills a regular customer, Doria, on the massage table and attacks Emily. She escapes, warning Rory and the recently released Jamie, and they rush to find Lisa. In her home, Lisa is killed when the Leprechaun claws her in the stomach, and her friends find her body.

While Emily and Jamie want to return the gold, Rory does not and takes off with it; realizing Rory is gone, Emily is chased outside by the Leprechaun, but is saved when Rory has a change of heart and returns. The Leprechaun finds Rory's house and kills his profligate girlfriend Chanel (Keesha Sharp) by tearing out her jaw, reclaiming the gold she used to make a tooth, while Rory and Emily are harassed by Officers Thompson (Beau Billingslea) and Whitaker (Chris Murray). When the Leprechaun appears and kills the officers, Emily and Rory escape and regroup with Jamie, only to be confronted by Rory's drug-dealing rivals, led by Watson (Shiek Mahmud-Bey) and Cedric (Sticky Fingaz). Planning to kill Rory for infringing on their territory, Watson and his gang are disposed of by the Leprechaun, while Emily, Rory and Jamie drive off in Watson's car, seeking Esmeralda's help.

She advises using four-leaf clovers against the Leprechaun, and Rory laces hollow-point bullets with clovers Jamie finds in the marijuana Rory sold him earlier. When the Leprechaun arrives, Rory shoots him with the clover bullets, only for his gun to jam before he can finish off the Leprechaun. Rory and Emily have the chance to escape with the gold when the Leprechaun is distracted by Jamie, wounded by a baseball bat to the leg, and Esmeralda dies in a magical duel with the Leprechaun. Followed to the roof of the building, Rory tries fighting the Leprechaun and is knocked out. Before the Leprechaun can kill him, Emily throws some of his gold into wet concrete and lures him into the ruins of the youth center, where she tosses his gold into a furnace before knocking the Leprechaun inside.

Believing the Leprechaun dead, Emily returns to Rory, only for the Leprechaun to renew his attack. Knocking Emily off the roof and leaving her barely holding on, the Leprechaun taunts her, but is shot several times by Rory. He runs out of bullets, but distracts the Leprechaun long enough for Emily to hit him with the chest of coins, sending him into the wet concrete below, where the Leprechaun sinks and becomes trapped with his gold.

The film concludes with an animated epilogue as the Leprechaun digs himself out in a cliffhanger.



The film was originally set to take place on a tropical island in the midst of spring break, though executives at Lions Gate had director and writer Steven Ayromlooi change the location to an urban environment, like the previous entry in the series.


The film holds an 18% approval rating on review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, based on 11 reviews.[2] The film was included in Entertainment Weekly's "The worst movie sequels ever" article, writing, "if a movie could spark a race riot, this is it."[3]

Reboot and sequel[edit]

It would be 11 years before another Leprechaun movie was released, the film Leprechaun: Origins, the first film in the series not to star Warwick Davis in the titular role; the film is a reboot of the franchise. Another film, Leprechaun Returns, directly following up the first film from , was made for television in , also without Davis.

From as early as to as late as , writer/director Darren Lynn Bousman has expressed interest in making another Leprechaun film, with the idea of placing the titular character in the Old West, with Warwick Davis starring.[4][5]

Leprechaun Returns is a American comedy horror film made as a direct sequel to Leprechaun from Directed by Astron-6's Steven Kostanski, the film stars Taylor Spreitler as the daughter of Jennifer Aniston's character from the original film, who encounters the titular creature 25 years after her mother trapped it in a well. Warwick Davis elected not to return as the Leprechaun, and Linden Porco took over the role for this film.[1]


Lila Jenkins (Taylor Spreitler) arrives at Devil's Lake, North Dakota, to help greenify an old house owned by her sorority at Laramore University. Lila hitches a ride from Ozzie Jones (Mark Holton) and reveals that her mother, Tory Redding, had died the year prior to cancer. Ozzie accidentally drops his phone while unloading Lila's luggage and heads back to retrieve it, only to get sprayed by water from the old well, rebirthing the Leprechaun and causing it to punch his way out of Ozzie's torso.

Lila meets her sorority sisters consisting of Katie (Pepi Sonuga), an eco-friendly and intelligent girl; Rose (Sai Bennett), the self-appointed leader of the group; and Meredith (Emily Reid), a stoner who brings over a group of dudes consisting of Andy (Ben McGregor), a dimwitted student attracted to Katie; and Matt (Oliver Llewellyn Jenkins), a self-proclaimed wannabe filmmaker. After Meredith insults Lila's mother for her fear of monsters, Lila goes to bed and encounters visions of Zombie Ozzie. The next morning, Katie and Andy install a solar panel, while the Leprechaun learns that his powers are too weak due to his loss of gold, and determines that killing will solve his problems. That night, the Leprechaun reveals himself to Lila and Meredith, who takes pictorial evidence of the creature when Matt and Rose rebuff their suspicions. Andy also encounters the Leprechaun, who bifurcates him in half with the solar panel after he mocks the leprechaun for his height.

Meredith and Lila sneak inside the house to recover the car keys, where Meredith locks Lila in the basement and reveals she made a deal with the leprechaun to have Lila in hopes of leaving the rest alone. The group leaves Lila behind when Meredith reveals that Lila was killed, but soon learn of Meredith's true intentions. Meanwhile, Lila encounters Ghost Ozzie, who helps Lila learn of the Leprechaun's true weakness and of the basement's exit hole. When the Leprechaun catches up to the group on Matt's drone, they crash into a tree and run away, leaving Meredith behind when the Leprechaun reveals a loophole he created in order to continue the murders. The Leprechaun slows Meredith down using sprinklers, and kills her by impaling her mouth with a sprinkler faucet. Matt attempts to slow down the Leprechaun with his drone, but he overrides the controls and decapitates Matt with the drone blades.

Rose and Katie run into Lila and follow a treasure map that Ghost Ozzie helped Lila discover. The three discover a pick-up truck that contains the gold, but Rose reveals that she cashed in some of the gold to help finance the greenify project. To deceive the leprechaun, Lila stuffs the pot with tampons and offers the gold back to the Leprechaun, but he realizes their true intentions. Lila is able to trap the leprechaun in a circle of iron objects (iron is a leprechaun's weakness) in order create a plan to defeat the leprechaun. Katie restores the power while Rose creates clover juice. Lila stuffs a hose in the Leprechaun's mouth and fill him with the juice, causing him to explode. Rose offers to clean the house, but the Leprechaun is able to multiply himself into multiple small leprechauns using chunks of his body. Rose is able to defeat most of the creatures, but the leprechauns outsmart her and impale her on a trophy. The leprechaun is able to form again before Lila and Katie discover Rose's body.

Lila is able to surround the leprechaun's feet with gold before electrocuting the Leprechaun, blowing up the house in the process. Lila and Katie become covered in green slime and they escape. It's revealed Lubdan survived at the end. He hitchhikes a ride on a chicken truck on its way to Bismarck, North Dakota so he can reclaim his gold before the credits roll.



Leprechaun Returns premiered digitally via video on demand on December 11, [2] The film made its worldwide TV premiere on March 17, on Syfy.[3] It was then released on DVD[4] and Blu-ray in June.[5]


On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a 50% approval rating based on 10 reviews, with an average rating of /[6]Bloody Disgusting gave the film a decent review, entitled "Leprechaun Returns is Far from Gold But Still Manages to Charm."[7]

Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood (10/11) Movie CLIP - Police Brutality! (2003) HD

&#;Leprechaun Returns&#; Had Two Other Possible Titles

Michael Myers is unkillable.

&#;s Halloween helped revive the slasher by opening to a whopping $78M at the box office. Its successor, this weekend&#;s Halloween Kills, opened in the midst of a pandemic and an even more unsure box office, while also competing with itself on SVOD platform Peacock. Even with a 39% on Rotten Tomatoes (72% audience score), the latest sequel still managed an astounding $M in 3, locations.

It is the biggest debut of a horror film during the pandemic era that opened in theaters the same day as streaming. It&#;s also worth noting that we don&#;t know how much Peacock paid Universal Pictures for the streaming rights, which likely puts this into another stratosphere. Everyone involved has to be excited to get back behind the camera for Halloween Ends.

Meagan Navarro reviewed the film, writing that &#;Halloween Kills carves up a gruesome old school slasher… for better and worse.&#;

&#;Halloween Kills begins when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster. The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all. Evil dies tonight.”

As for Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Sony&#;s sequel added another $M for a $M North American total. It also absorbed a whopping $62M more internationally for a monstrous $M global take. It&#;s a far cry from the first film&#;s $M but there&#;s still time.

Meagan Navarro writes in her review for Bloody Disgusting that Venom: Let There Be Carnage “hits the ground running and doesn’t stop for the brisk minute runtime. It’s the perfect runtime for a rom-com, but as a superhero movie, it gets sloppy.”

She continues, “But it’s hard not to be charmed by Venom attempting to cheer up his host with a lavish breakfast and pep talks. Or a dose of self-love and acceptance in the form of a confessional mic drop at a costume party. If you’re in the mood for silly, this sequel nails it. But for an epic showdown among monsters, it lacks bite.”

Tom Hardy is back as Eddie Brock, who is of course also the alien symbiote known as Venom. Woody Harrelson, who popped up as Cletus Kasady in the first film’s post-credits scene, ultimately becomes Carnage in the film. Michelle Williams is also back in the upcoming sequel to the smash-hit movie from , with Naomie Harris co-starring as Shriek.
