Surprising news! Lionsgate is going to make a Power Rangers movie!
The movie studio is partnering with Saban Brands to import the martial arts team to the silver screen. While there is no news about cast, director or anything concrete, Haim Saban did have this to say:
They [Lionsgate] 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.Will Lionsgate continue the Power Rangers legacy by creating an action movie for kids, or will the new movie(s) embrace a little more grit to appeal to nostalgic adult audiences? By comparing it to "Hunger Games", I'm guessing the latter.
If you answered yes, you're in luck! Deadline is reporting that Disney has brought Jon Turteltaub (director of National Treasure) on board to direct a movie based on the ride. Also reportedly working on the project is Jared Stern (writer of Wreck-It Ralph), and Dan Lin (producer on The Lego Movie).
After 21 years the sequel is well on it's way to becoming a reality.
A followup film has been in the works since 2001 when Bonnie Hunt was chosen to write the script. But after many rewrites, David Berenbaum, writer of "Elf," has taken on the task.
Few details have yet to be released but according to Elite Daily Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus are on board!
Goonies director, Richard Donner, reveals that there will be a sequel to the 1980s adventure classic!
Goonies never say die, and apparently neither does the possibility of a follow-up film 30 years later. How do you feel about this? Should Chester Copperpot's search for One-Eyed Willie's treasure have ended with Mikey and the gang, or is there more mystery for an new generation kids from the goon docks?
