I can’t tell you what, but it does have a continuity.” Orci hinted that original Power Rangers cast members might appear, saying “Of course.
That’s something we want to rely on the Saban group to tell us.
They have a lot of internal knowledge of their franchise and we’re just learning now.
We’ve seen it only as fans, but they actually know it inside and out, so I’d love to know what fans want to see.” The Power Rangers Reboot screenplay is being written by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, who wrote the comic book movies Thor and X Men: First Class.
