Orci joins the Power Rangers… staff.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the movie theaters… Robert Orci who just recently left the Amazing Spider-Man movie franchise, is joining another colorful, stretchy material franchise: The Power Rangers, under his Sneaky Shark banner. Announced in May, Lionsgate and Saban Brands will be producing a Power Rangers reboot movie, and they are welcoming Robert Orci as executive producer.

Orci will be joining X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz for this project, helping to develop the story while Miller and Stentz will be doing the screenwriting. Previously, Orci was one of the writing team that ruin-- wrote the screenplays for Michael Bay's Transformers franchise, the Star Trek reboot movies, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Little is known about the upcoming Power Rangers movie except for the official description:

The new film franchise will re-envision the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of high school kids who are infused with unique and cool super powers but must harness and use those powers as a team if they have any hope of saving the world.

The Power Rangers franchise borrows from the even longer running Japanese sentai (task force) tokusatsu (live action special effects) television and movie franchise. In the Power Rangers television show, footage and costumes from the Japanese shows are used with original western footage and storylines. It is unknown if the reboot will use the costumes or storylines from any established Japanese shows and to note, the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie used mostly original costumes and footage.

Hopefully since Orci will be the producer rather than a writer on this movie, any criticism of the upcoming film will be met with a less… passionate response. No director or release date has been announced for the reboot film.
