Star Trek into Darkness‘ Roberto Orci has signed on for the new movie adaptation of the Power Rangers.
The Power Rangers dates back to the 1990s when it began as the children’s series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
There have been two movies based on the popular characters; released in 1995 and 1997.
This latest Power Rangers movie will “completely re-envision the Rangers, a group of high school kids who are infused with unique superpowers but must harness and use those powers as a team if they have any hope of saving the world.”
Orci, who has signed on as executive producer, will join Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (X-Men First Class) to develop the story, which will be written by Miller and Stentz.
