Lionsgate & Saban Brands Announce POWER RANGERS Live-Action Reboot

Go, go [gritty and realistic] Power Rangers? Perhaps! Just 10 minutes ago, it was announced that Saban Brands and Lionsgate will uniute for the most badass and epic motion picture the world has ever seen. The Might Morphin' Effin Power Rangers! That title may change within the next couple of months, but for now, we're calling the film that. Now this reboot may come as a bit of a surprise for some people (myself included) but boy is this awesome news. Ever since Michael Bay brought the Transformers to life in 2007, I have been dying for a new take on the Power Rangers and, I'm happy to say, I will finally get it. 

The Wall Street Journal broke the news, here's what they had to say:
"Lionsgate is the perfect home for elevating our Power Rangers brand to the next level," said Saban. "They have the vision, marketing prowess and incredible track record in launching breakthrough hits from The Hunger Games to Twilight and Divergent. In partnership with the Lionsgate team, we're confident that we will capture the world of the Power Rangers and translate it into a unique and memorable motion picture phenomenon with a legacy all its own."We're thrilled to be partnering with Haim Saban and his team to maximize the potential of this immensely successful and universally recognized franchise," said Feltheimer. "The Power Rangers stories and characters have been embraced by generations of audiences for more than 20 years, and today they are more powerful than ever. We have the ideal partner and the perfect brand with which to create a motion picture event that will resonate with moviegoers around the world for years to come."
Hot diggity damn, a Power Rangers movie like Twilight? Sign me up now! Of course Lionsgate will [hopefully] take a different approach with their new Power Rangers franchise, but at this point, who really knows? Could we see Robert Pattinson suit up as Tommy the Green Ranger? Or Kristen Stewart as the Pink Ranger? Who knows! Heck we might see Saorise Ronan audition for this film, and maybe she'll tell everyone like she did with Star Wars and Avengers
