In Leprechaun and its sequels, star Warwick Davis has made his way to Vegas, space, the hood, and even, in an unexpected twist, back 2 tha hood. Now Saw director Darren Lynn Bousman has another destination in mind for the diminutive freak: the wild west. I know what you're thinking. Leprechaun is set in modern times. Arbitrarily sending Leprechaun to the wild west would sweep away whatever traces of logic remained after he went to space, right? Unless you gave him a time machine! From MTV:
Believe it, Darren Lynn Bousman insisted, telling MTV News that the project he most wants to do next is “Leprechaun.” No, seriously.
“I would do ‘Leprechaun’ in a second,” the amiable Bousman laughed. “If Lionsgate is listening, give me ‘Leprechaun.’”
So where would Bousman like to take the series next?
“Back to the old west,” Bousman said. “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!”
I'm fine with sending Leprechaun to the old west, but the thing is, if we're going to start handing him advanced, science fiction-level technology, there are some better things we can be giving him before we get to a time machine. Things like...
A lightsaber - Seems obvious enough.
The weird science from Weird Science - Is Leprechaun's ideal woman a beautiful human, a little mutant like him, or something in between? Now we find out.
This thing - Leprechaun could ride it, and it would be terrifying.
The Large Hadron Collider - Whether Leprechaun creates a black hole that destroys the earth, or just fills in some holes in the Standard Model of particle physics, it should make for good entertainment.
A Leprechaun Terminator - As played by Verne Troyer, obviously.
ASIMO - Honda's bipedal robot is already horrifying when it runs, but to make it even creepier, it's given a knife, an erection, and the face of Brian Peppers. To reflect the addition of ASIMO, the subtitle of this Leprechaun venture is: "Forget the effing Leprechaun--this penis robot is the worst thing ever."
Two time machines - Just when we think we've finally put an end to Leprechaun's time travelling mayhem, fuck, this dude's got another time machine!
