Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant Are Making a Leprechaun Action Comedy

Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, of The State and Reno 911! fame, have signed on to write The Wee McGinty, a movie that sounds absolutely absurd and amazing:

The premise: the height-challenged wish-granter 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. Among the pyrotechnics: a wish-off that involves a fire-breathing Doberman.

OK! I'm on board, where can I buy tickets? In addition to writing the movie, Garant will direct and Lennon will play "a major supporting role."
