Are you a Power Rangers fan? Do you wish you could see your favorite Power Rangers in action again? Yeah, sure, Lionsgate and Saban are rebooting the franchise right now, but that doesn’t involve the Rangers you grew up with. What about Karan Ashley, David Fielding, David Yost, Walter Jones, Austin St. John, Jonny Yong Bosch, Steve Cardenas, and Paul Schrier? What about Azim Rizik from Megaforce, Jason Faunt, Erin Cahill, Deborah Philips, and Daniel Southworth from Time Force, Blake Foster, Nakia Burrise, and Hilary Shepherd from Turbo, and Yoshi Sudarso from Dino Charge? Fortunately for you, these former Rangers have all teamed up again for a spy vs. spy actioner entitled The Order.
Scott Struber’s Bluegrass Films has just optioned the Arcana / Benderspink graphic novel The Order and set screenwriter Brian Nathanson to script the movie. The Order is about a group of young priests gathered by the Vatican, “to travel the globe battling mysterious evil forces.”
Sounds like a great straight to DVD movie to this NerdBastard. The only thing missing from this news is a police officer blowing his whistle and yelling, “Move along, nothing to see here.” It must be a seriously slow news day for this story to be on every movie blog and news feed.
Unless the producers manage to cast a group of hot, young, KNOWN actors to fill the team, this is going to be just another poor man’s Constantine team-up. Did anyone experience any excitement about the announcement of this project?
Here’s the big tag line . . . “From the producer that brought you the movie Battleship and the television show Whitney . . .”
This Nerdbastard is gonna go check the prices on pitchforks.
