The Powers Rangers are getting another theatrical reboot, this time at Paramount and in a story that will take the concept back to its 1990s roots, according to the Hollywood Reporter

THR is reporting Paramount Pictures is in early negotitiations with filmmaker Jonathan Entwistle (Netflix's The End of the F---ing World) to start over and call on the property's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV past. 

According to the Hollywood trade, the story would involve "a time-travel element that brings the kids to the 1990s, and in Back to the Future fashion, they have to find a way to get back to their present.

Patrick Burleigh (the upcoming Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway), is reportedly writing the script. Hasbro's Allspark Pictures would produce.

The Powers Rangers last attempt at big screen success was Lionsgate's 2017 reboot that tried to update it into something that more resembled a Marvel or DC movie. That film only grossed an un-Marvel or DC-like $142 million worldwide, hence another reboot.
