The Hollywood Reporter have this week revealed two screenplay writers who are attached to pen the script for Lionsgate and Saban Brands' upcoming live-action cinematic reboot of the Power Rangers TV and film franchise. First established way back in 1993, the series has grown exponentially ever since its inception, as has its increasingly dense and convoluted mythology, all of which will reportedly be tossed aside in favour of a fresh take on the narrative universe in its latest incarnation.
If the names Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz don't immediately ring a bell, then we'd advise that readers consult the pair's filmography, where they'll discover that these two talented scribes were behind the screenplay for none other than 2011's X-Men: First Class. That's right, Miller and Stentz brought us the oh-so-accomplished semi-reboot narrative which preceded Days of Future Past, making them ideal selections to revive and reconfigure the Power Rangers license in a dynamic and dramatically stimulating manner. In addition, The Amazing Spider-Man 2's co-screenwriter Roberto Orci is on producing duties, so make of that what you will (we're sure the hordes of 'fans' who threw insults at that particular sequel from every direction will have one or two things to say, certainly).
Keep it On-Screen in the coming months for more details on the live-action Power Rangers big-screen revival's central cast members, plot specifics and still-to-be-determined release schedule.
