How could we ever forget the colorful team of "Power Rangers" that filled our hearts with glee? Made famous by the TV series "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" in 1993, you won't have to wait much longer to see the Rangers hit the screen once again. Lionsgate has just announced that they are producing a live-action movie, making it the first film in a new franchise.
Saban owns the property and is teaming up with Lionsgate to adapt it for the film universe. In the press release, Saban stated, "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.’"
Saban produced "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie" in 1995 with the original TV cast members reprising their roles. The cast included Amy Jo Johnson as the adored pink ranger, as well as David Yost, Johnny Yong Bosch, Karen Ashley, Steve Cardenas and Jason David Frank. It focused on a group of teenagers who morphed into Rangers, in order to save the world from aliens.
It will be very interesting to see what actors and what director they will lock to bring this property back to life. Superheroes are all the rage right now, so there really isn't a better time to adapt this for the big-screen.
