It was only two years ago when Saban brought the Power Rangers back to the big screen, with an all-new and likeable cast with plenty of potential.
The film never hit the heights that Lions gate and Saban had hoped, only bringing in $142.3 million on a budget of $105 million. With returns like this, a sequel was always going to be a long shot, but stranger things have happened in Hollywood.
In the aftermath, Haim Saban sold the brand to Hasbro in 2018 and the new owners promised a new “global series”, fans were excited with the prospect and hoped a potential follow up film would soon be in the works.
Stranger Things actor Dacre Montgomery, who played Jason/Red Ranger in the movie, took part in a Reddit AMA and confirmed Hasbro is wiping the slate clean and rebooting the franchise once again.
When asked if we would see another Power Rangers film, Dacre replied:
“I think there is a movie in the works but it’s not with me and the cast. So yes but not with us.”
Anyone else pissed off? I am! This cast totally rocked, and fans are now seeing how good they’re in other projects. Saban and Lionsgate had a six-film plan, which would see the introduction of Tommy Oliver/Green Ranger i.e the greatest Ranger ever and we were robbed of that.
