Power Rangers Movie Set For Production This Year

January 21st, 2015 by Marc Comments


The upcoming Power Rangers movie has been getting a lot of well deserved attention. Especially since it’s going to be a “modern take” on the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers story. Though much is still unknown, Jason David Frank, aka Tommy Oliver, aka the Green/White/Red/Black Ranger from multiple Power Rangers series, has let it be known that the movie is set to start filming this year.

“We’re definitely not in a holding pattern. The movie is definitely set for this year. Everything is in place. They won’t give me specific details because it’s all like hush-hush. Even me, I try. I email Saban and ask them kind of what you’re asking me, but they do feel that I’m going to be part of it, because they feel there’s no movie, at least, without me.

The funny thing is, one way or another, whether it happens or it doesn’t, I’ve been great to Lionsgate and I’ve been loyal to Saban. It’s not like they owe me, but if I want to ask for a personal favor, I’ve invested into their emotional bank account. I feel like it’s fair to have that withdrawal with them, because I’ve done nothing but support them for the last 10 years, 20 years in fact.

So when that happens, I don’t need to cash in any favors. I believe it’s going to happen anyway, but when it does, I’ll keep my fans involved, but I will tell you it is being filmed this year. I know that for a fact. It’s going to be great when it is.”

Interesting words, but it’s good to note that JDF’s loyalty and love of the series is still within him, which was recently shown in the anniversary “Legend War” in Power Rangers Super Megaforce. We’ll keep an eye on what’s going on and fill you in when any morphenomenal news breaks!

The film itself is currently slated for a July 22nd 2016 release.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
