It has been two years since Powers Rangers was in theaters and fans have been wondering whether there would be a sequel or not. Well, according to the film’s Red Ranger, Dacre Montgomery, Hasbro appears to be moving forward with another film in development, but it comes at a cost.
During a Reddit AMA, the Stranger Things star confirmed Hasbro’s plans, but he and the original cast will not return for a second stint. Check out what he had to say:
“I think there is a [Power Rangers] movie in the works but it’s not with me and the cast. So yes [another Power Rangers movie will take place], but not with us.”
2017’s Power Rangers brought in $140 million at the box office, but it was not enough to meet the standard and led owner Haim Saban to sell the Power Ranger brand to Hasbro. The toy company, then, elected to reboot the franchise.
Before selling, Saban, who had teamed up with Lionsgate, had plans to make a six-movie story arc that would focus on the introductions of Tommy Oliver the Green Ranger and Lord Zedd, one of the most famous Rangers villains. These five films will never be made as Hasbro will work with Paramount studios on creating more stories that could introduce crossovers with other Hasbro properties like Transformers and G.I. Joe.
