Saban's big budget reboot of Power Rangers is currently filming in Vancouver and Lionsgate has released information to the press about what we may see—Which is pretty much the obvious.

Here's the synopsis with cast and crew information, via Lionsgate:

Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.

The film stars Dacre Montgomery (A Few Less Men) as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott (The 33) as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G (Empire) as Trini the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Zack the Black Ranger, and Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect, The Hunger Games franchise) as Rita Repulsa.


Directed by Dean Israelite (Project Almanac),Saban's Power Rangers is written by John Gatins (Kong: Skull Island, Real Steel), Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Dracula Untold), Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor), and Max Landis (Chronicle). Producers are Power Rangers creator Haim Saban, Brian Casentini (Power Rangers TV series), Wyck Godfrey, and Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga, The Fault in Our Stars, The Maze Runner franchise).

Allison Shearmur (The Hunger Games franchise; Rogue One: A Star Wars Story)and Brent O'Connor (Warcraft) serve as executive producers. Brian Tyler (Avengers: Age of Ultron; Now You See Me)is the composer and Kelli Jones (Straight Outta Compton, Sons of Anarchy)is the costume designer. Set decorator is Oscar-nominated Hamish Purdy (The Revenant) and stunt coordinator is Paul Jennings (Game of Thrones, San Andreas, The Dark Knight). Weta Workshop (The Lord of the Rings, Avatar, District 9) is in charge of suit design and visual effects. Andrew Menzies (Fury, X-Men)is the production designer and Director of Photography is Matt Lloyd (Daredevil, Cop Car)

----------------

What's more interesting than the fairly obvious synopsis is the crew involved. Last we heard, Zack Stentz and Ashley Edward Miller were the writers on the project. Before that Max Landis took a crack at it. However John Gatins, Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama are new names attached to the movie—Whether they worked on the script before or after Stentz and Miller has yet to be determined.

Kelli Jones as the costume designer is a big one. Although Straight Outta Compton and Sons of Anarchy are competent resume pieces, does she have the tools to appropriately re-imagine the Zyuranger costumes used in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers?

The announcement I'm most comfortable with is Brian Tyler as the composer. The man takes cues from the Jerry Goldsmith school of music writing and everything he's touched as been blessed with a marvelous theme. Redundant as he may be sometimes, he's a great fit for Power Rangers.

So what do you think of this information? Does the synopsis do anything for you? What do you think of the crew announcements? Let us know in the comments below.
