New POWER RANGERS Movie "Is Being Filmed This Year"

Jason David Frank, who played Tommy Oliver/Green Ranger (later became White Ranger) on the live-action television series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers says filming for the new film will happen this year.


In May of last year, Saban Brands and Lionsgate officially announced a new Power Rangers feature film was in the works. Then Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz were hired to write the screenplay. They're writing credits include X:Men: First Class, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Fringe. Roberto Orci, who co-wrote J.J. Abrams' Star Trek films and Michael Bay's Transformers films, was brought in to be the film's executive producer, but he left because he was too busy getting ready to Star Trek 3. Welp, he's free now. Outside of all of that, we really haven't heard anything new regarding this Power Rangers reboot.

Actor/professional martial arist Jason David Frank, who still has strong ties to Saban Brands has said in the past that he will more than likely have a cameo in the new film. In a recent interview with comicbook.com, Frank reiterates his interest in making a cameo and confidently says filming for the reboot will take place later this year.


Since you mentioned it, I feel like I've got to ask, are there any new updates in terms of the Power Rangers movie or everyone still in a holding pattern?

We're definitely not in a holding pattern. The movie is definitely set for this year. Everything is in place. They won't give me specific details because it's all like hush-hush. Even me, I try. I email Saban and ask them kind of what you're asking me, but they do feel that I'm going to be part of it, because they feel there's no movie, at least, without me. The funny thing is, one way or another, whether it happens or it doesn't, I've been great to Lionsgate and I've been loyal to Saban. It's not like they owe me, but if I want to ask for a personal favor, I've invested into their emotional bank account. I feel like it's fair to have that withdrawal with them, because I've done nothing but support them for the last 10 years, 20 years in fact.

So when that happens, I don't need to cash in any favors. I believe it's going to happen anyway, but when it does, I'll keep my fans involved, but I will tell you it is being filmed this year.

I know that for a fact. It's going to be great when it is.

POWER RANGERS - The new movie promises to completely re-envision the Rangers, a group of high school kids who are infused with unique and cool super powers but must harness and use those powers as a team if they have any hope of saving the world.
