When we first brought you the news a new Power Rangers film might be in the works, Saban Entertainment had said: “Lionsgate is the perfect home for elevating our Power Rangers brand to the next level
“They have the vision, marketing prowess and incredible track record in launching breakthrough hits from The Hunger Games to Twilight and Divergent.
“In partnership with the Lionsgate team, we’re confident that we will capture the world of the Power Rangers and translate it into a unique and memorable motion picture phenomenon with a legacy all its own.”
And they have. Lionsgate are a film powerhouse at the moment. In particular, The Hunger Games films are absolutely dominating the box office from the moment they’re released. This is a very safe house for the Power Rangers to be in.
But today’s big news is that the writing team behind the new Power Rangers film are the dynamic duo Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz. The two have worked on blockbuster hero films in the past, such as Thor and X-Men: First Class.
With these two at the writer’s desk and Lionsgate holding the purse strings, this Power Rangers film will be morphin’ into much better shape than Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers and Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie managed.
