Robert Ben Garant to Direct "Wee McGinty" Leprechaun Comedy

Posted: January 6th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Robert Ben Garant to Direct "Wee McGinty" Leprechaun ComedySubmit Comment
Deadline is reporting that Summit Entertainment has brought on Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant ("Reno 911") to rewrite the script for "The Wee McGinty" comedy. Garant will then direct.

The story revolves around a leprechaun who loses his memory and settles in with a group of Chicago firefighters. That bliss is threatened when he is discovered by his paramilitary leprechaun brethren. The result is a wish-off that involves a fire-breathing Doberman.

The film is described as "'Bourne Identity,' but plug in a leprechaun instead of Matt Damon." Mark Gibson and Phil Halprin (The Wild, Snow Dogs) were the original writers.

Whatever you do, don't steal his Lucky Charms.

They're magically delicious.

Wow. That must be some very serious ganga they've been smoking. The Bourne Identity with a Leprechaun ? Even Warwick Davis would give you the bird on that one.

Hey, maybe they can get Jennifer Aniston to do a cameo as the Leprechaun's love interest.

Or a love interest of one of the other firefighters. She see this Irish dwarf, screams and flings herself out of the firehouse, third story window, breaking ribs and fracturing her tibula.

Hilarity ensues.

Sure, Night at the Museums was both kind of sh*tty, but Reno is awesome and I believe that in the absence of PG they will make this work.

Lennon and Garant are only funny when it comes to adult comedy.

Wee McGinty ?

Sounds like a movie in which Che floats a truck and becomes a refugee in Ireland.

* A Cuban with bad English escapes to Ireland to blow portmen in order to live a new life! *
