WWE Studios was encouraged by the Comic-Con response...
Hornswoggle's monstrous take on the Leprechaun franchise will see the actual big screen after all. Variety reports that Lionsgate and WWE Studios have decided to give the film a limited theatrical release on August 22nd ahead of its August 26th DVD/Blu-Ray and VOD release.
The release was decided on after the San Diego Comic Con screening of the film was well-received; it is intended to serve as a "marketing tool" to help promote the film's home release profits. The film stars Hornswoggle, Andrew Dunbar, Melissa Roxburgh and Brendan Fletcher and focuses on two unsuspecting young couples who discover a town's chilling secret while backpacking through the Irish countryside.
