Reboot mania continues as Lionsgate announces plans to team up with Saban Brands and produce a new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers live action feature.
Right now, there’s a plan for one movie, but they’re definitely willing to make more if the first one does well. From Deadline:
“Lionsgate has announced it will team with Saban Brands to revive the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in the first of what it hopes will be many live action feature films… The new film will cast a new group of high school kids who mix their studies and social lives with the mission to save the world.”
It will be interesting to see if they go for the same low production values or if Lionsgate decides to amp it up and throw some serious money at it. At any rate, with TMNT on the way as well, it’s like the ’90s all over again.
