After largely disappointing back in 2017, it looks like the cinematic future of the Power Rangers is getting a rejig.
Previously, we’ve heard rumblings of there being a Power Rangers sequel on the way, yet Dacre Montgomery – the 2017 movie’s Red Ranger – has shed some light on proceedings.
During a Reddit AMA chat, Montgomery was asked about what’s happening with said sequel. His response seems to indicate that the franchise is getting rebooted, as he replied with, “I think there is a movie in the works, but it’s not with me and the cast. So, yes – but not with us.”
Montgomery was joined in that Dean Israelite-directed effort by Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludin Lin, Elizabeth Banks, Bill Hader and Bryan Cranston, with the mid-credits scene for the film teasing the arrival of Tommy Oliver’s Green Ranger for any sequel.
While the response to Power Rangers was mixed, the box office return of $140 million from a $105 million budget would seemingly be worrying for Lionsgate and Saban. As such, it seems as if they’re going back to the drawing board with the Power Rangers franchise.
As ever, expect more on all things Power Rangers as we get it.
