It is being reported that the new live-action Power Rangers movie from Lionsgate and rights holder Saban Brands will have the script written by X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz. Reports go on to say that Roberto Orci who who will be directing the third Star Trek movie from Paramount is coming on board as an executive producer.
Saban launched Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as a live action television series more than 20 years ago, and the series has been in continuous production ever since. It has subsequently grown into one of the world’s most popular and recognizable brands, with toys, apparel, costumes, video games, DVD’s, comic books and other merchandise.
The new movie promises to completely re-envision the Rangers, a group of high school kids who are infused with unique and cool super powers but must harness and use those powers as a team if they have any hope of saving the world.
