The Power Rangers are coming back for more action.
It’s the End of the F—ing World creator Jonathan Entwistle will lead the next series of screen adaptations as part of Hasbro’s eOne, THR reported Wednesday (October 21).
The new initiative will “see Entwistle overseeing, and directing, both film and television adaptations.”
“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. Across our slate, we are looking forward to working with the most talented storytellers as we take on Hasbro’s rich fan-favourite brands and build entertainment universes around them,” eOne’s film president Nick Meyer and global television president Michael Lombardo said in a joint statement.
“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,” said Jonathan.
Power Rangers was a ’90s TV series initially called The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, using footage from a Japanese children’s show. The show first aired on Fox Kids, along with a movie in 1995.
In 2017, Lionsgate rebooted the franchise for a film.
