DC’s Titans writer Bryan Edward Hill will pen the heavily-anticipated Power Rangers reboot.

Reported via Deadline, Bryan Edward Hill, one of the writers on former DC Universe show (and new HBO Max series) Titans, has been announced as the screenwriter who will adapt eOne and Hasbro’s next big-screen entry into the Power Rangers franchise.

Around the same time, Jonathan Entwistle signed on to oversee the franchise’s movie and TV projects and Hill is undoubtedly excited for the two of them to tackle the iconic superhero team as he took to social media to share his feelings.

Below is what he wrote on Twitter:

Hill, the African-American comic book, film and television scribe – who we recently interviewed  about Titans – is also co-producer of the Berlanti-produced DC Comics show.

He has been behind several titles for publishers such as Marvel, DC and Top Cow just to name a few, not to mention his various film and TV productions like Ash vs. Evil Dead and more. Hill most recently penned a film adaptation of a comic series entitled Black, which is centered on the Black community – all of whom develop special powers beyond society’s understanding.

This Power Rangers reboot will be the fourth live-action film in the American media franchise created by Haim Saban, based on the Japanese tokusatsu franchise Super Sentai.

Saban’s Power Rangers – released back in 2017 – was the Power Rangers’ last big-screen adaptation. It was directed by Dean Israelite, produced by Saban himself for Lionsgate and starred Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks.

It was intended to birth more sequels but those plans were cancelled due to a poor box office performance. The new Power Rangers reboot will be overseen by eOne and Hasbro.
