Lind plays a magician in “Monster Hunt,” which has become a box office smash in China.
Dean Israelite is directing the movie from a script by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz. Haim Saban, Brian Casentini and Allison Shearmur are producing.
The story reimagines the origins of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of high school kids given extraterrestrial powers who unite to save the world.
The 1993 Fox Kids TV series became a pop culture phenomenon and inspired a big-screen adaptation, “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie,” in 1995.
Lionsgate and Saban Brands announced plans last year to develop and produce a live-action movie based on Saban’s Power Rangers property as the first film in a franchise.
