When you’re the actor who brought Walter White to life, you can pretty much make any bold statement you like regarding your future projects, and Bryan Cranston isn’t holding back when it comes to ‘bigging’ up the soon to be released Power Rangers reboot.
The Breaking Bad actor recently signed on to play Zordon in the blockbuster reboot of the hit children’s TV series Power Rangers and has been busy promising something truly special for all the fans of the original 90’s programme.
A darker re-imagining of the classic franchise has been in the works for some time now in Hollywood, considering the vast majority of the original fan base are now in their twenties and thirties – not to mention it’s perhaps the last successful franchise that’s not been turned into a big budget film franchise.
In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Cranston spoke of how the film would be almost unrecognizable from the TV series and offer something completely new;
It’s certainly exciting to know that one of the most loved TV series will soon be given the big budget treatment, and with a stars like Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks signed on to star, it must be offering a pretty decent storyline as well.
Fun fact for those that don’t already know: Bryan Cranston lent is voice to characters in Haim Saban’s original TV series and eventually has the character of Billy Cranston (Blue Ranger) names after him.
Power Ranger is due for release worldwide from 24 March 2017.
