Besides the release date set for July 22nd, 2016, and a script from X-Men: First Class co-writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz details are slim on the upcoming Power Rangers reboot. Several names have been rumored for roles in the film and Jason David Frank is going to be attached likely in a mentor type role.
Jason revealed some details during a recent interview with Comicbook.com.
“The movie is definitely set for this year. Everything is in place. They won’t give me specific details because it’s all like hush-hush. Even me, I try. I email Saban and ask them kind of what you’re asking me, but they do feel that I’m going to be part of it, because they feel there’s no movie, at least, without me. The funny thing is, one way or another, whether it happens or it doesn’t, I’ve been great to Lionsgate and I’ve been loyal to Saban. It’s not like they owe me, but if I want to ask for a personal favor, I’ve invested into their emotional bank account. I feel like it’s fair to have that withdrawal with them, because I’ve done nothing but support them for the last 10 years, 20 years in fact.
So when that happens, I don’t need to cash in any favors. I believe it’s going to happen anyway, but when it does, I’ll keep my fans involved, but I will tell you it is being filmed this year.
I know that for a fact. It’s going to be great when it is.”
