The 2017 Power Rangers reboot movie didn’t do so well compared to previous manifestations of the franchise, but that doesn’t mean morphin’ time is going away. Hasbro’s eOne is involved with It’s the End of the F—ing World creator Jonathan Entwistle to bring out more Power Rangers.
The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news, explained that “the new initiative will see Entwistle overseeing, and directing, both film and television adaptations.”
“This is an unbelievable opportunity to deliver new Power Rangers to both new and existing generations of awaiting and adoring fans. We’ll bring the spirit of analog into the future, harnessing the action and storytelling that made this brand a success,” Entwistle remarked in an official statement.
eOne’s film president Nick Meyer and global television president Michael Lombardo released a statement about how pleased they are with Entwistle helming the project. “Jonathan has an incredible creative vision for this iconic and hugely successful franchise, and is hands down the right architect to join us as we reimagine the television and film worlds of this property,” they said.
