It’s being reported that yet another film reboot of the Power Rangers franchise is now in development. This time, however, it appears that the filmmaker behind Netflix’s series It’s The End of the F—-ing World – Jonathan Entwistle – is in talks to direct this new iteration. It’s also being set up at Paramount Pictures.
While there aren’t too many details available at the moment for this upcoming Power Rangers iteration, the story details are reported to focus on a time travel plot. It appears that the group of kids are sent back in time to the 1990s and just find a way back to the present.
While Jonathan Entwistle is in talks to direct the film, Patrick Burleigh is writing the screenplay. The film will be produced by Hasbro via its production arm Allspark Pictures.
