Your favourite Power Rangers characters including Jason, Kimberley, Trini, Billy and Zack are all here.. but missing is the Green ranger Tommy - I guess we gotta wait for the sequel for him to turn up. Lionsgate haven't made any comment on casting, but with a release date set for January 2017, the studio will be looking to lock these down soon.

Dean Israelite, who directed this summer's teen-oriented 'Project Almanac' is behind the camera, with a script by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz who've previously collaborated on 'Thor' and 'X-Men: First Class'.
