‘Power Rangers’ Fan Film Starring Katee Sackhoff is Nothing Like You’d Expect

power-rangers-originalProduced by Adi Shankar (Lone Survivor) is back with another fan film, this time tackling the popular Mighty Morphin Power Rangers franchise. Much like his previous outings The Punisher: Dirty Laundry and Venom: Truth in Journalism, this is a dark, gritty R-rated take on the children’s show and, I must say, this may be his finest achievement yet.

The short stars Katee Sackhoff as Kimberly, the Pink Ranger and James Van Der Beek as Rocky, the (second) Red Ranger who has sided with the main antagonist of the fan film, the Machine Empire, who debuted during Power Rangers: Zeo. The film also features Russ Bain, Bree Olson,  and Will Yun Lee. Director Joseph Kahn has created a version of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers like we’ve never seen before! Check out the video below!

Why you might ask did Shankar chose the Power Rangers? Well…he answers that question in the video below. Enjoy

An actual reboot of the Power Rangers is in development at Lionsgate with a script by Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller. It’s set for release in theaters on July 22, 2016.
