Power Rangers Movie Is A Go (Go)

August 14th, 2014 by Andrew McCarroll Comments

The 90’s revival continues with Lionsgate announcing that it will release the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie on July 22, 2016.

Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (Thor) have written a script based on a story by Robert Orci (Star Trek) plot details have yet to be released but honestly even if it is a shot for shot remake of the 1995 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie I would be happy.

No director or casting has been announced, but with the release date confirmed expect the studio to be locking both down in the coming weeks.

The Power Rangers will face competition every bit as tough as Ivan Ooze with June seeing the release of the animated Angry Birds and Steven Spielberg’s The BFG and Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day 2 , an as yet unconfirmed Marvel Studios movie, a new Bourne movie, Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur and Matt Reeves’ sequel to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes all set to slug it out at the box office.

Zordon and Megazord will be needed now more than ever.

Andrew McCarroll never quite built on the dizzying career heights that he hit at 6 years old, when as a member of the “Ghostbusters” he would charge his neighbours to remove any unwanted spectres. Now retired from slaying spooks, he spends his time obsessing over superheroes (especially Batman) and devouring shows like Dexter, Game of Thrones and Archer in a manner that would make Galactus proud.
