Bryan Cranston says Power Rangers will be dark and gritty

As you may have heard, the one and only Bryan Cranston is set to play Zordon in a major new Power Rangers movie, and he's got some info to share on the film.

Talking to the Huffington Post, the actor was quick to say that this movie won't have much in common with the original series, and that he wasn't sure when he was originally asked to do it:

"I wasn’t really high on it until I talked to the producer and read the script and talked to the director. After that I went, ‘This is different.’This is as different a reimagining as the ‘Batman’ television series as it became the ‘Batman’ movie series. You can’t compare those two, and nor can you compare this movie version of the ‘Power Rangers’ to that television series. It’s unrecognizable for the most part. There are tenets of the folklore that you hold onto for sure, but the inspiration is different, and the sensibility of it, and the approach to the film making is completely different."

That's pretty good news, especially when you consider the previous TV series consisted of a lot of redubbed and recycled action footage and the big screen outings were total duds. Having an actor of Cranston's calibre doing this kind of promotion is a real boon to the priduction, and we'll have to wait and see if its all just marketing fluff.

In keeping with the idea of this being an entirely new property, here's a look at the official imagery so far.

Power Rangers is directed by Dean Israelite and hits cinemas in March, 2017.
