Let's Fan-Cast the Gritty Power Rangers Reboot Coming in 2016

Children and grown-ups alike flocked to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in its first weekend of release, and now Hollywood is betting the the '90s nostalgia wave will last least two more years – on Wenesday, Lionsgate announced that its Mighty Morphin Power Rangers reboot will hit theaters on July 22, 2016.

The studio has signed the the writers of Thor, to produce a script off a story by Star Trek's Robert Orci.
