POWER RANGERS Reboot Taps TITANS Co-Producer To Pen The Movie's Screenplay
eOne and Hasbro are wasting no time with the big screen Power Rangers reboot as a writer has now been found to take charge of the highly anticipated movie. Find out more details on that after the jump...
Deadline reveals that eOne and Hasbro have now closed a deal to have Bryan Edward Hill write the planned big screen reboot of Power Rangers. Jonathan Entwistle is directing the movie, and has been tapped to take charge of the franchise in both theaters and on television.
The 2017 reboot from Lionsgate tried to take advantage of the superhero movie craze, but delivered a bloated origin story with an oddly specific focus on Krispy Kreme donuts during the final act.
As for Hill, he's one of the most prolific African-American filmmakers working today, and most recently adapted Black for Studio 8 and Warner Bros., penned Revenge of Magic for Stampede, and rewrote I Am Yours for Paramount. He's a co-producer on HBO Max's Titans, and has a history writing some huge titles for Marvel DC, Top Cow, Boom, and Vertigo.
Needless to say, it's hard to escape the feeling that Power Rangers is now in safe hands, and this could be the movie fans of the franchise have been waiting for. It certainly won't be hard to improve on the last effort, and providing eOne and Hasbro don't move too far away from what always worked in the past, we should be in for a treat.
