Peter Dinklage has decided to parlay all that Station Agent and Game of Thrones acclaim to play a crass fake leprechaun. I could go on, but we’ve all got the Bad Santa concept in our head, and that’s probably close enough, so let’s talk about some other stuff, no?

In order to make lemonade of this news, let’s find some good here. The script is written by Andrew Dodge, who just wrote the film Bad Words, about profane spelling bee contestants. Huh. That’s interesting. And a somewhat thin premise, but it got the attention of Jason Reitman, who has also tolerated screenwriting by Diablo Cody, so maybe this will just be obnoxious and not terrible.

There we go. That’s the optimism I could muster from this news. Have a good day.

Harry Wilkins, as the screenwriter of the upcoming Leprechaun film, you have your work cut out for you. He was found by the good folks at Lionsgate after the picked up one of his spec scripts, which is a cruel fate indeed – submitting your own creative work to a studio, having them accept it, only to get banished to the land of Leprechaun. Not the “land of leprechauns,” though. That’s Ireland, and it’s a fine place to visit.

In case this is all news to you, allow me to backtrack by saying that there’s going to be a Leprechaun reboot, which is funny, because nobody gives two shits as to whether the next Leprechaun is a reboot, sequel, prequel, reimagining, or just some terrible film that oozes out of the skin of the scaly monster that is the studio system.

Now’s as good a time as any to mention that Lionsgate has an ownership interest in Screen Junkies, in case it appeared I was playing favorites with my above comments.
