Lionsgate pushes Power Rangers reboot back to 2017

2 May 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fans looking forward to seeing the Power Rangers back on the big screen will have to wait a little longer, with Lionsgate and Saban Brands pushing the feature film reboot back six months from its original date of July 22nd 2016 to January 2017.

The reboot of the long-running TV series was originally being developed by Roberto Orci, who left to concentrate on Star Trek 3 (before departing that too), while last month saw reports that Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) was in advanced negotiations to direct the film, which has been written by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class).

Power Rangers is now slated to hit cinemas on January 13th, 2017.

You'll have to wait a bit longer for the Power Rangers movie: Reboot delayed 6 months

1 May 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Power Rangers are making their return to the big screen, but a delay is pushing the movie back six months.

A film reboot for the popular kids' series was announced as being in the works from Star Trek Into Darkness writer Roberto Orci last spring, although Orci later quit the project.

Development moved forward with Thor's Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz penning the screenplay and Dean Israelite circling the project as director.

Lionsgate and Saban Brands are now confirming that there will be a delay in release for the Power Rangers movie.

Power Rangers is moving from a July 22, 2016 release to January 13, 2017, according to Variety.

Little is known about the storyline for the reboot, other than that the original Green Ranger actor Jason David Frank is expected to appear.

Frank revealed last autumn: "They are so tight-lipped on that project, it's ridiculous. I don't even know my involvement in it. »

‘Power Rangers’ Movie Pushed Back to 2017

30 April 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate’s “Power Rangers” movie has been moved back six months to Jan. 13, 2017, from its original release date of July 22, 2016.

Lionsgate and Saban Brands announced the “Power Rangers” project in May. The studio tapped Dean Israelite to direct earlier this month from a script by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz.

Power Rangers” creator Haim Saban is producing the film along with Brian Casentini, head of development and production for Saban Brands, and Allison Shearmur, who oversaw “The Hunger Games” as president of production at Lionsgate.

Saban launched “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” in 1993 as a live-action TV series. It has been in continuous production ever since, with the series renamed each year — the latest iteration is “Power Rangers Super Megaforce,” which began airing in February.

Details have yet to emerge on plans for the new film franchise other than that the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will be portrayed as a group »

Power Rangers Reboot Pushed to January 2017; Gosling and Stone Confirmed for 2016’s La La Land

30 April 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment have announced a slew of changes and announcements for their upcoming releases. First, let’s briefly look at the release date shifts: Power Rangers has been pushed from July 22, 2016 to a January 13, 2017 date. American Ultra will be released wide on August 21, 2015. La La Land has been given a prime summer date of July 15, 2016. Dirty Grandpa has been moved up from August 2016 to February 26, 2016. Criminal has been pushed from this August to January 22, 2016. Gods of Egypt will now open a few months later than planned, on April 8, 2016. The Power Rangers film is being released via Lionsgate, but the January date is a far cry from a high-profile summer release. X-Men: First Class scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are working on the screenplay and we recently learned that Project Almanac director Dean Israelite is in talks to take the helm, but he hasn’t yet been confirmed. »

Dean Israelite In Negotiations For Power Rangers Movie

13 April 2015 5:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After putting a found-footage spin on the time-travel genre in this spring’s Project Almanac, Dean Israelite is angling to take on a classic kids franchise for his next gig, with news that Lionsgate is negotiating for the helmer to tackle its Power Rangers reboot.

TheWrap reports that Israelite has been pursued by multiple studios following the success of Project Almanac, in which he proved he could draw great drama and suspense out of a young cast on a limited budget, but he’s turned them all down while waiting for the right project. Given his stated love for the Power Rangers franchise, it’s clear that Israelite believes he has found it.

Should the director ink a deal, he’ll be working from a script by X-Men: First Class scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz. Lionsgate hopes the new film will launch a franchise, so it has put a »

Power Rangers Reboot To Get Project Almanac Director

13 April 2015 12:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Dean Israelite’s Project Almanac finally received a belated release in the first few months of this year, and allowed a little sunlight for this neophyte director’s career.

According to The Wrap, he’s been called in to discuss plenty of different geek and franchise pictures, but has been holding off for something he feels personally invested in.

My mind is a little boggled by the fact that he’s chosen The Power Rangers. This is the project that has a special place in his heart? At least we can make a good guess at his approximate age.

I’ve tried to find out what this new Power Rangers will be all about but, so far, have come up empty handed. Very possibly because it won’t be about anything. I mean, it’s the Power Rangers.

The script for this new film has been written by Ashley Miller »

Power Rangers reboot landing Project Almanac director

12 April 2015 10:13 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Power Rangers head back to the big screen in July 2016 - and Dean Israelite is the frontrunner to direct...

Lionsgate and Saban's big screen reboot of the Power Rangers seems to be moving one sizeable step closer, with the news that a director may have been found for the new feature.

Dean Israelite, who made his feature directorial debut with Project Alamanac earlier this year, is reportedly in negotiations to direct the new Power Rangers movie. Israelite is a Power Rangers fan, reports The Wrap, and if he signs on the dotted line here, he'll be shepherding the screenplay by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz to the screen.

Lionsgate has scheduled the Power Rangers reboot for a release date of July 22nd 2016, and it's likely to push Israelite's other known project, the remake of WarGames, back down the list a little.

The plan will presumably be for this new »

Dean Israelite in talks to direct Power Rangers Movie reboot

12 April 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dean Israelite is in talks to direct the upcoming Power Rangers Movie reboot.

The Project Almanac director will take on the film based around the '90's TV show The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, reports The Wrap.

The show's premise was based around a group of high school kids who were chosen to protect the earth from an alien invasion.

They were able to morph into warrior fighters and were able to power giant robots called Zords.

The script has been penned by X Men: First Class and Thor writers Ashley Miller.

Zack Stentz and Haim Saban, Brian Casentini and Allison Shearmur are all signed on to produce the reboot.

The 2016 film will mark the third theatrical release for the franchise.

The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie was released in 1995 and starred the original cast.

Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie followed in 1997 but failed to have the same success the first outing had. »

Dean Israelite Tapped To Direct Power Rangers

12 April 2015 9:38 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While there has been more attention recently on Joseph Kahn and Adi Shankar’s Bootleg Universe version of the characters, the official, Haim Saban-sponsored new Power Rangers film is still in the works. And now it has a director in negotiations: Project Almanac’s Dean Israelite.Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are crafting the script, with Star Trek / Transformers writer Roberto Orci present to help guide the story’s structure.What that story will be is still unclear, but will likely function as a fresh variant of the usual Rangers trope: a group of ordinary – at least by the standards of the show – teenagers, who when danger strikes, “morph” into superheroes with specific powers, whereupon, they battle a variety of beasts and other villains. Launched in 1993, the show became the most-watched children’s TV programme and, remains one of the top-rated and longest running live-action TV series in history, »

Project Almanac director in talks for Power Rangers reboot

11 April 2015 1:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Apart from the ultra-violent Power/Rangers short film that debuted earlier this year, we haven’t heard much about the Power Rangers, who are set to get another shot at the big screen next summer. That’s about to change, however, as word has hit that the film may have just found a director.

According to TheWrap, Lionsgate and Saban are looking at Project Almanac helmer Dean Israelite to direct the film, and have him in “advanced negotiations.” Israelite is said to be a “huge” fan of the beloved franchise, and hopes to bring a fresh voice to the property. He has supposedly been offered the chance to helm several tentpoles, but has been waiting for the right project to come along.

The Power Rangers reboot is written by Thor and X-Men: First Class scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, and is slated to morph into theaters on July 22, 2016.

'Power Rangers' Movie Lines Up 'Project Almanac' Director

10 April 2015 6:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We haven't heard much on Lionsgate's Power Rangers reboot since Roberto Orci backed out of producing the movie back in September. We reported in January that production will begin sometime this year, which is getting closer to actually happening, now that The Wrap reports Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) is in talks to direct. The filmmaker is said to be a huge fan of the franchise, and he has also turned down a number of studio tentpole projects, waiting for the right one to come around.

The project is a theatrical reboot of the 1990s hit TV series Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, which followed a group of high school kids who attain super-human powers, making them masters of martial arts. Their powers also gave them the ability to control interconnecting robots, similar to the 1980s animated TV series Voltron: Defender of the Universe. The series spawned the 1995 feature Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie »

‘Project Almanac’ Director to Helm ‘Power Rangers’ for Lionsgate

10 April 2015 5:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After a lengthy search that saw several top tier directors vying for the job, Lionsgate has tapped Dean Israelite to direct its reboot of “Power Rangers.”

Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are penning the script with Haim Saban, Brian Casentini and Allison Shearmur producing.

The story reimagines the origins of the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” a group of ordinary high school kids who find themselves infused with extraterrestrial powers and unite as a team to save the world with the aid of giant mechanical vehicles known as Zords.

The characters gained popularity thanks to the 1993 Fox Kids TV series of the same name, which became a pop culture phenomenon and inspired a spinoff theatrical film, “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie,” in 1995. The original iteration of the series ran until 1996, when the franchise was renamed simply “Power Rangers,” with different subtitles every season. In later seasons, the titular teens were »

Power Rangers Movie: Dean Israelite in Talks to Direct

10 April 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Project Almanac had a bit of a rough run at the box office, but that isn’t stopping director Dean Israelite from moving on to bigger gigs because TheWrap is reporting that he’s currently in negotiations to direct the Power Rangers movie for Lionsgate and Saban Films. Apparently Israelite had the opportunity to direct a number of different tentpole films, but he passed on all of them hoping that “the right one” would come his way. [caption id="attachment_441971" align="alignright" width="361"] Image via Paramount Pictures[/caption] Few enjoyed Project Almanac as much as I did, but whether you were into Israelite’s feature debut or not, I do think Israelite’s incredible attention to detail will serve the Power Rangers movie well. Apparently Israelite is a big fan of the franchise and is hoping to “bring a fresh voice to the property,” and if he puts half as much effort into developing the Power Ranger lore, »

Watch: Katee Sackhoff, James Van Der Beek Kick Ass in ‘Power Rangers’ Fan Film

24 February 2015 4:28 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Power Rangers are all grown up and the future looks … dark.

Film producer Adi Shankar and director Joseph Kahn teamed up to created a bootlegged, revisionist future version of the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” in 14 minute short film called “Power/Rangers.” The fan film imagines that the Rangers have matured past their teenage years, and now live in a much bleaker world.

The video stars “Battlestar Galactica” actress Katee Sackhoff as Pink Ranger Kimberly (a role originated by Amy Jo Johnson in the TV series), and “Dawson’s Creek” headliner James Van Der Beek as disgruntled former Red Ranger Rocky (played by Steve Cardenas on the show).

In the short, Rocky has captured Kimberly, and is interrogating her, trying to figure out the location of Green Ranger Tommy who is apparently the only other Ranger still alive. The film features blood, bad language and a killer twist.

Who's that starring in that bloody, R-rated 'Power Rangers' reboot?!

24 February 2015 12:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

My history with Joseph Kahn is an odd one. So when we spoke on Saturday about the top-secret project he's been working on since I saw him last summer at Comic-Con, I was aware how strange it is that Kahn would trust me with this secret. It is a testament to the way a real conversation with someone can change a relationship entirely, because by all rights, he shouldn't have anything at all to say to me. After all, I was rude to him about his first film "Torque." I didn't review the film, but I did find a way to make sure to take a cheap shot at him at the end of the year. In his second feature, "Detention," Kahn sneaks in a few sideways digs at film critics, but the damnedest thing happened: I enjoyed the film when I saw it at SXSW and I gave it a good review. »

Power Rangers: new movie will shoot this year

19 January 2015 11:13 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The new take on the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers looks still on course for a summer 2016 release.

Things have been quiet on the Power Rangers movie reboot front of late, ever since the project was first announced around eight months ago. Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz had been hired to pen a screenplay (and Roberto Orci was involved for a time too), but that aside, little else has been heard.

Comicbook.com however has been chatting to actor and martial arts expert Jason David Frank, who has worked on Saban projects in the past, and he's confirmed that the new Power Rangers film will be going before the cameras in 2016.

"The movie is definitely set for this year", he confirmed. "Everything is in place. They won't give me specific details, because it's all like hush-hush". However, "I will tell you it is being filmed this year".

"Power Rangers" Reboot Films This Year

19 January 2015 9:09 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Actor Jason David Frank, better known to as the Green Ranger from the original run of the "Power Rangers" TV series, has indicated that production will begin on the franchise's cinematic 'restart' sometime this year. Speaking with ComicBook.com, Frank says:

"We're definitely not in a holding pattern. The movie is definitely set for this year. Everything is in place. They won't give me specific details because it's all like hush-hush. Even me, I try. I email Saban and ask them kind of what you're asking me, but they do feel that I'm going to be part of it, because they feel there's no movie, at least, without me.

The funny thing is, one way or another, whether it happens or it doesn't, I've been great to Lionsgate and I've been loyal to Saban. It's not like they owe me, but if I want to ask for a personal favor, »
