Lionsgate To Reboot “Power Rangers” With Feature Film

May 7, 20140 Comments

With over 20 seasons on television, The Power Rangers are back… and they’re being rebooted by Lionsgate.

Haim Saban and Lionsgate announced a deal to produce a new live action feature film based on the classic kids show that debuted in 1993, reports TheWrap.

“Lionsgate is the perfect home for elevating our Power Rangers brand to the next level,” Saban said. “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.”

The Power Rangers have had many different iterations and cast members over the last 20 years and their presence has been felt through toys, apparel, costumes, video games, DVDs, comic books, and other items. I know I remember playing with my Power Ranger action figures back in the day. I probably still have my Green Ranger mini-series VHS box set around here somewhere.

With today’s technology, a big budget Power Rangers film could be awesome. It’d probably end up being similar to Pacific Rim.
