Power up, nineties babies! The multi-coloured, monster-busting superhero group you grew up watching and imitating will return to the silver screen in less than two years' time. Lionsgate announced the release date for the Power Rangers reboot film on Twitter.

No word yet on whether the film will feature an ensemble cast, but its crew already consists of Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz of X-Men: First Class, who will reportedly write the script. Roberto Orci (producer of Transformers, Star Trek and The Amazing Spider-Man) will co-produce with Haim Saban, Brian Casentini and Allison Shearmur. Haim is no stranger to the masked warriors, having produced the 1995 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers film.

Lionsgate is responsible for the distribution of blockbuster franchises like The Expendables, The Hunger Games and Twilight, so it wouldn't surprise us if Power Rangers is expanded into a series. Watch out, Transformers.
