The classic TV staple of the ’90s is coming to the big screen in 2017 and will feature a new batch of alien-fighting teenagers.
Our friends at Entertainment Weekly gave us our first look at Becky G, RJ Cyler, Naomi Scott, Ludi Lin, and Dacre Montgomery as the modern version of Trini, Billy, Kimberly, Zack, and Jason, respectively.
Project Almanac director Dean Israelite is set to direct the big-screen revival, with Pitch Perfect star Elizabeth Banks attached to play the role of Rita Repulsa, the principal nemesis and archenemy of the team.
Special effects and prop company Weta Workshop (Lord of the Rings, Avatar) will be responsible for the Rangers’ uniforms, with Israelite wanting them to have a “really modern, edgy, badass, aspirational quality” while still immediately recognizable as belonging to the Power Rangers.
