POWER RANGERS Movie To Be Written By X-Men: First Class' Scribes

POWER RANGERS Movie To Be Written By X-Men: First Class' Scribes

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Power Rangers live-action reboot film will be penned by X-Men: First Class' screenwriters. Check it out.

In May, Saban Brands and Lionsgate officially announced their plans for a new Power Rangers feature film. The franchise began 20 years ago as a television series, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. It was about the "adventures of a group of ordinary teens who “morph” into superheroes and save the world from evil."

Today, The Hollywood Reporter reported, X-Men: First Class' screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz have been hired to pen the script for the live-action Power Rangers reboot. Keep in mind, many screenwriters contributed to X-Men: First Class, like Jamie Moss, Josh Schwartz, Zak Penn, Sheldon Turner, Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman. And it was cobbled together from other X-Men film projects like the solo Magneto film. As for Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, they have collaborated in the past on several projects, like Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Fringe.

This new Power Rangers film will also get a helping hand from Star Trek 3 director Roberto Orci, who was part of a writing team responsible for such film as: Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, three Transformers films and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Orci will be an executive producer and help develop the story alongside Miller and Ashley.

The new movie promises to completely re-envision the Rangers, a group of high school kids who are infused with unique and cool super powers but must harness and use those powers as a team if they have any hope of saving the world.

MrReese - 7/15/2014, 11:45 AM
Can't wait 4 the trailer lol
Reasonnnn - 7/15/2014, 11:46 AM
Don't forget Roberto Orci is also on this project.

POWER RANGERS movie will be written by guys who were heavily rewritten on X-MEN FIRST CLASS! - Badass Digest's Devin Faraci

Oh god no I do not want a Power Rangers movie! We are getting enough shit Nickelodeon TV series' anyway...
DaVinci31 - 7/15/2014, 11:51 AM
This actually decreases my interest in this film.

Too old for this sh*t, but if the young kids like it as much as I did back in the early 90's, so be it.
DaVinci31 - 7/15/2014, 11:54 AM
With Lionsgate attached, this could go either way, anyway.

Nice choices. Just saw First Class recently, surprisingly good.
Nomis - 7/15/2014, 11:59 AM
A Power ranger movie done by some writers of "X-Men:First Class" films?

LOL! This is TOO EASY to make an insult on both franchises!
YeezusWept - 7/15/2014, 12:01 PM
This will probably at least be better than the TMNT reboot.
Spidey91 - 7/15/2014, 12:04 PM
oh yes, can't wait!
giant f*cking robots FTW.
sKeemAn - 7/15/2014, 12:07 PM
They need to do the best crossover movie of all time.

ALegendaryPanda - 7/15/2014, 12:07 PM
Nice! I'm surprisingly optimistic about this movie
Gamester76 - 7/15/2014, 12:09 PM
I can get behind this. Coming from THR, it's a hell of a lot more believable than the dubious rumor that Max Landis was on this, and that even-more-so dubious "report" about the cast including Liam Neeson as Zordon! However, that alone could make this movie an even more sure-fire winner...

In fact, let's get that campaign going right now! LIAM NEESON AS ZORDON!!!
Doopie - 7/15/2014, 12:11 PM
so does this mean we're not going to get the real Power Rangers and just some guys with the same names? revert the rights already
cipher - 7/15/2014, 12:12 PM
Can I be the Pink Ranger?
BlackIceJoe - 7/15/2014, 12:13 PM
I enjoyed First Class. So I'm optimistic this should be good. As much as the shows really aren't great. There is a lot of material to make this into a huge movie franchise.
TheRationalNerd - 7/15/2014, 12:16 PM
this film is going to literally kick all kinds of a**!! Can't wait!!
YeezusWept - 7/15/2014, 12:17 PM

An over-abundance of explosions and gratuitous ass shots of Kimberly in short shorts? Why the hell not!
SuperCat - 7/15/2014, 12:17 PM
Can't believe you guys like Power Rangers.
yossarian - 7/15/2014, 12:17 PM
I will never see it so they could hire a Charlotte Brontë clone for all I care.
YeezusWept - 7/15/2014, 12:19 PM

Did your rationality finally surpass your blackness? Lol :)
BackwardGalaxy - 7/15/2014, 12:22 PM
Hm. Does this mean I have to pay attention to this project now?

The only way I'm seeing this shit is if Shakespeare was writing and producing. LOL

He's [frick]ing dead and so is this shite!
MisterHolmes - 7/15/2014, 12:24 PM
.......................whatever, im not a child anymore so i could care less about the power rangers, the show was made for kids and this will be also. its going to be lame but ill give it a chance
ralfinader - 7/15/2014, 12:28 PM
Micheal Bay directs or GTFO.
Jollem - 7/15/2014, 12:29 PM
@SuperCat - it's weird. isn't this what people compare things to in an insulting way?
TheRationalNerd - 7/15/2014, 12:30 PM

Lol, pretty much. But while I'm at it!

LebronsHairline - 7/15/2014, 12:30 PM
nolan to direct!
Enphlieuwince - 7/15/2014, 12:31 PM
Let's do this...
McNyagano - 7/15/2014, 12:32 PM
I loved FC so hell yeah! Now give it to Michael Bay;)
cipher - 7/15/2014, 12:33 PM
I still say I'd rock the shit out of the tiny pink skirt.
TheRationalNerd - 7/15/2014, 12:33 PM
They could honestly make this into a trilogy...

First Film: All original 5 Rangers form as a team.

Second Film: Mystery 6th ranger goes against the 5 but in the end he joins the team.

Third Film: The all new team of 6 rangers defeat the main baddy or new baddy.
TheRationalNerd - 7/15/2014, 12:35 PM
Michael Bay for Power Rangers!!!!

Pleaseeee make Zedd the baddie!
