‘Power Rangers’ Movie Finds Its Pink Ranger

The new “Power Rangers” film has found its Pink Ranger in Naomi Scott.

The film revealed the casting on its official Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Dean Israelite is directing the Lionsgate movie. The studio is currently testing young talent, looking at up-and-coming actors and actresses to make up the team. Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are writing the script, while 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.

Scott appeared on “The Martian” and the TV movie “Lemonade Mouth.”

“Power Rangers” hits theaters on Jan. 13, 2017.
