Power Rangers Being Rebooted, According to Actor Dacre Montgomery

When the Power Rangers hit theaters with a sleek, big-budget production back in 2017, it failed to resonate with audiences or critics. Now, with a new Power Rangers film being discussed, it appears that it’ll be a complete reboot of the property.

During a Reddit AMAStranger Things actor Dacre Montgomery, who played Jason/Red Ranger in the 2017 film, said that he and his former castmates aren’t expecting to suit up for this new cinematic outing.

I think there is a movie in the works but it’s not with me and the cast, Montgomery said. “So, yes — but not with us.”

That Power Rangers film followed five ordinary high school kids who became something extraordinary when they learned that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – was on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, the heroes discovered that they are the only ones who could save the planet.

Directed by Dean Israelite (Project Almanac), Power Rangers was written by John Gatins (Kong: Skull IslandReal Steel), Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Dracula Untold), Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First ClassThor), and Max Landis (Chronicle). The cast also included Bill Hader (IT: Chapter Two) voicing Alpha 5 and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) as Zordon.

Saban, Brian Casentini, Wyck Godfrey, and Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga) all served as producers.
