It’s only been two years since the last Power Rangers reboot, but now Paramount are looking to breath new life into the franchise once again with a brand new feature film.
According to THR, Jonathan Entwistle (best known for Netflix’s dark comedy series The End of the F***ing World) is in early negotiations to direct the reboot from a script by Peter Rabbit 2 screenwriter Patrick Burleigh.
Paramount are hoping to take the franchise back to its roots, instead of the YA approach Lionsgate took with the 2017 film. The new story is said to involve time-travel, bringing the new Rangers to the 1990s in Back to the Future type fashion, they will then have to find a way to get back to their time.
None of the actors from the 2017 film are set to reprise their roles.
I’m not sure whether there’s a high demand for another Power Rangers film so soon. But I’m totally onboard. The 2017 film was a great starting point for a modern, fresh approach, but unfortunately the film didn’t hit the right note with fans of the franchise, albeit the film now has a cult following.
For those who don’t known who the Power Rangers are (where have you been?). They are a group of teenagers with attitude that can morph into superheros known as the Power Rangers to save the world from otherworldly threats.
