The first Power Rangers movie from Lionsgate will be released next year, but it's already looking to do much more with the franchise.
On a conference call, CEO Jon Feltheimer said that the company could be looking at developing six more films. "We are really, really excited about the Power Rangers movie. We could see doing five or six or seven."
He revealed that this tentative plan is based on the reaction to the new Power Rangers costumes. This, he said, is "evidence of audience interest."
Of course, what truly matters is how much the film generates at the box office. Ultimately, plans for sequels will depend on this.
The Power Rangers movie stars Naomi Scott, Dacre Montgomery, RJ Cyler, Ludi Lin, and Elizabeth Banks, and is being directed by Dean Israelite. The film will be released on January 13, 2017.
