Studio will team with the Connecticut-based entertainment company on a reboot of "Leprechaun," the 1993 horror pic that was one of the first starring roles for Jennifer Aniston and an indie hit. Pic was produced by now defunct studio Trimark, which was eventually absorbed by Lionsgate in 2000. Both Lionsgate and WWE Studios will share producing costs as well as team on marketing strategies. Lionsgate will handle distribution. Pic is set for a 2013 release, though there is currently no writer, director or cast attached. The other film in the deal has yet to be determined. WWE, the home of a handful of wrestling programs, is readying to launch a new TV network and restructuring its film division.
