- The film will be released in July 2016
- It's based on the 1990s kid series
- No casting has been announced
If this summer's "TMNT" reboot wasn't enough to whet your 90's nostalgia appetite, a second course is just 710 days away: Lionsgate has announced that it will release the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" movie on July 22, 2016.
Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller ("Thor") wrote the script based on a story by Robert Orci ("Star Trek") that reinvents the tale of ordinary high school kids who possess the power to save the world. The color-coordinated crime fighters first jump-kicked into the national consciousness with a 1993 Fox Kids TV series, and just two years later "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie" hit screens.
Though speculation abounds, no director or casting has been announced. The film's release date will put the Rangers up against royalty, in a sense—Guy Ritchie's "King Arthur" is slated to hit theaters the same day.
