Lionsgate and Saban’s Power Rangers movie picked up a considerable amount of steam last week with the news that X-Men: First Class scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stenz will be writing the screenplay. Moreover, Transformers and Star Trek alum Roberto Orci has come aboard the project as executive producer. Details regarding the adaptation of the popular 1990s TV series have been scarce, but Orci recently opened up a bit about their plans for the movie. It’s still early days as the script hasn’t yet been written, but Orci revealed that the film will exist in continuity with the world of the TV series and also discussed the kind of research that he, Miller, and Stenz have been doing in preparation for the script. More after the jump.
