It's morphin' time — in about two years.
If you're a '90s kid (and if you're reading this, you probably are), you may have already heard the news a few weeks back that the writing team behind X-Men: First Class and Thor (Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller) are working on the screenplay for a new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie, produced by Roberto Orci (Transformers, Star Trek, Amazing Spider-Man 2).
Lionsgate films and Saban, the original creators of Power Rangers, aka the only thing worth turning the TV on for after coming home from fifth grade in 1995, announced today the movie will be released July 22, 2016.
The official synopsis from the press release says it will be "a modern reinvention of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of ordinary high school kids who find themselves infused with extraterrestrial powers and must harness those powers as a team to save the world."
They forgot to mention that the Red Ranger kicks ass, but maybe that's another press release.
No word on any casting yet, but maybe they can get Bryan Cranston to revive his old role.
