After Bob Orci dropped out as Power Rangers' story writer and producer, the film's production movement was suddenly uncertain. Was everything still going as scheduled? Did Orci dropping out mean the film would be pushed back?

According to Jason David Frank, the original Green (and White) Ranger from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, that's not the case. Frank, who starred in six different seasons and made cameos in two others, (including last year's Power Rangers Super Megaforce) assured fans that the movie would be shooting soon. Furthermore, he's confident he will be part of it:

We're definitely not in a holding pattern. The movie is definitely set for this year. Everything is in place,” says Frank. Though he admits he doesnt know much beyond that.

They won't give me specific details because it's all like hush-hush… I email Saban and ask them kind of what you're asking me, but they do feel that I'm going to be part of it, because they feel there's no movie, at least, without me. The funny thing is, one way or another, whether it happens or it doesn't, I've been great to Lionsgate and I've been loyal to Saban. It's not like they owe me, but if I want to ask for a personal favor, I've invested into their emotional bank account. I feel like it's fair to have that withdrawal with them, because I've done nothing but support them for the last 10 years, 20 years in fact.”

Frank pulled no punches hyping the Lionsgate Ranger reboot.

I believe it's going to happen anyway, but when it does, I'll keep my fans involved, but I will tell you it is being filmed this year. I know that for a fact. It's going to be great when it is.”

“Going to be great." I'd like a bite of Frank's inspiring confidence. Right now there's no reason to doubt him with writers Ashley Edward Miller and Zach Stentz (X-Men: First Class, Thor, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) currently penning the script. Hopfully we'll have equally exciting cast and director announcements soon.

Power Rangers hits theaters July 22nd, 2016.
