Movie News: 'Power Rangers' Due in 2016; 'Texas Chainsaw' Prequel Coming

Aug 14, 2014

Might Morphin Power Rangers

Power Rangers: An updated version of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will be hitting the big screen on July 22, 2016. That's the release date for Power Rangers, which will reboot the 1990s TV show (and the 1995 movie version, above) for a new generation, based on a story by Roberto Orci (Transformers, Star Trek). Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class, Thor) are writing the script about a group of high school kids who must harness extraterrestrial powers to save the world.

 

Texas Chainsaw 3D

Leatherface: Though we had the reboot Texas Chainsaw 3D just last year (above), the next installment in the horror series will serve as a prequel to the original 1974 film. Seth M. Sherwood has been hired to draft the screenplay for Leatherface, which will serve as a -- gulp! -- origin story for the serial killer, detailing his exploits in the early 1970s. We're guessing that the origin story set in 1969 and told in 2006's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning will be rebooted. [The Wrap]

 

Revenge of the Green Dragons

Revenge of the Green Dragons Trailer: In the 1980s, New York City received a wave of immigrants from China, some of whom were not exactly, er, upright citizens. In the trailer for Revenge of the Green Dragons, we see how things play out when two immigrant brothers join a Chinatown gang and rise up through the ranks. Presented by Martin Scorsese and directed by Andrew Lau (who codirected Infernal Affairs, which Scorsese remade as The Departed), and Andrew Loo, the film stars Justin Chon, Kevin Wu and Ray Liotta; it's heading to theaters in October.
