New Power Rangers Movie Gets Release Date
It's morphing time... again!
Lionsgate and Saban Brands films have officially announced a July 22, 2016 release date for "Power Rangers", first Power Rangers film in the franchise to get a theatrical release in almost 20 years.
Although no cast or director have signed on to the project, Ashley Miller and Zach Stenz ("Thor", "X-Men: First Class") will write the screenplay.
Based on the long-running TV show about superhero teenagers who morph into rangers and fight off evil with superpowers, the original series "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" created two feature films: "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie" in 1995 and 1997's "Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie".
