The big screen reboot of the “Power Rangers” franchise is still a year off, but today “Torque” director Joseph Kahn and “Dredd” producer Adi Shankar have come up with something that should get fans excited and premiered it via HitFix.
In the tradition of Shankar’s “Punisher” and “Venom” fan film shorts comes the 14-minute “Power/Rangers,” a dark and very adult sequel to the children’s franchise. Boasting violence and nudity, the film begins with most of the Power Rangers dead and with James Van Der Beek as a traitorous Rocky having taken Katee Sackhoff’s Kimberly prisoner. Russ Bain, Will Yun Lee and Gichi Gamba also star.
