Lionsgate has announced today that it will release a new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie on July 22, 2016.
Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (Thor) wrote the script based on a story by Robert Orci (Star Trek) that reinvents the tale of ordinary high school kids who possess the power to save the world. No word of yet on casting or directing.
As many of you will undoubtedly remember, the color-coordinated crime fighters first jump-kicked into our national consciousness in 1993 with TV series, and just two years later Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie hit screens. That film made close to $38 million.
If you’ll excuse me, I have a morpher to dig up and Power suit to slip back into.
