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.
