"Power Rangers" Scheduled For July 2016

No director or cast is yet attached, but Lionsgate has announced a July 22nd 2016 release date for their upcoming reboot of the "Power Rangers" franchise.

That puts the film up against "Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur" on the same date, and between the fifth "Bourne" film the week before and the third "Planet of the Apes" film the week after.

Roberto Orci recently signed on to executive produce and develop the story with screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz ("Thor," "X-Men: First Class"). Originally thought to be a reboot, Orci revealed the new film will tie into the original series continuity.

Haim Saban, Brian Casentini and Allison Shearmur will produce.
