Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (“The State,” “Reno 911,”) are set to write The Wee McGinty, which tells the story of a leprechaun who loses his memory and ends up living at a Chicago fire-station. When the rest of the leprechauns find out about their missing comrade, all hell breaks loose.
Aside from writing the bizarre script, Garant is set to direct the film, while Lennon will star in a supporting role. The news comes as the pair are putting the finishing touches on “Alabama,” a sci-fi comedy that will air on FX. (Deadline)
