Just a few months ago we reported the news that Lionsgate and Saban Brands were teaming up to bring us a brand new POWER RANGERS movie for the big screen. Today we can share that the Power Rangers have found their creative team and it is an impressive one! Head inside and check this out.

X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz and that’s not all because Roberto Orci (Transformers franchise, Star Trek franchise) has come on board as executive producer as well as help Miller and Stentz on the story.

Power Rangers was a ’90s TV series and global marketing franchise, initially called The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, that used footage from a Japanese children’s show. It first aired on Fox Kids then in the 2000s on Disney-owned channels. A movie also hit theaters in 1995.

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.

Haim Saban, who created the franchise, will produce Power Rangers with Saban Brands’ head of development and production Brian Casentini. Also producing is Allison Shearmur, who oversaw The Hunger Games when she was Lionsgate’s president of production and recently produced Disney’s Cinderella.

In addition to First Class, Miller and Stentz also have screenplay credit on Marvel’s Thor and are working on Geostorm, a disaster movie that has Gerard Butler on board to star. They worked with Orci on Fringe, the cult TV show Orci created with Kurtzman.
In addition to three Transformers movies and two Trek films, Orci’s writing credits include Mission: Impossible III, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Cowboys & Aliens, among several others.
