It’s Morphin’ Time! Power Rangers Casting Shortlist Revealed

Those of you who grew up in the 90s probably watched Power Rangers. In fact, it’s a pretty safe bet that you did. So, there’s a reboot film in the works and it looks like Lionsgate, who will begin work on the film in 2016, wants a young, up and coming cast of relatively unknown actors.

Alright, so pop on your helmets and let’s get to it. This is the shortlist.

—UPDATE—

Kimberly / Pink Ranger has officially been cast and it’s English actress Naomi Scott from The Martian and Terra Nova.

No word on who’s in the running for the yellow and blue rangers, but does it really matter at this point? The names in consideration aren’t heavy hitters at all, and that’s the point, so you can be sure that the remaining rangers will also be unknowns. That’s a good thing, though. You wouldn’t want a big-name cast on a project like this. Let’s just hope Lionsgate do something fun with it.
