Power Rangers Reboot is In the Works, With a Classic Twist

It’s Morphin time for Jonathan Entwistle!

The filmmaker, perhaps best known for creating Netflix series The End of the F—ing World, is taking on Power Rangers, a new version of the colorful family adventure franchise, this time set up at Paramount Pictures.

Entwistle is in early negotiations to direct a new feature project that would reboot the title.

Rangers is getting rebooted in a way that hopes to bring the franchise to its roots. The story is said to involve a time-travel element that brings the kids to the 1990s, and in Back to the Future fashion, they have to find a way to get back to their present. Patrick Burleigh, who wrote the upcoming Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, is penning the script.

Hasbro, which bought the property from creator Haim Saban in 2018, is producing the feature via its film arm, Allspark Pictures.
