Elizabeth Banks To Play Rita Repulsa In The Power Rangers Movie

Elizabeth Banks is going bad.

The actress has signed on to star as the villain in Power Rangers, Lionsgate’s big-screen take on the 1990s kids television show, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Dean Israelite, who helmed the time-travel found-footage movie Project Almanac, is on board to direct the project, which is being produced by Saban Brands’ Haim Saban and Brian Casentini as well as Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey. Allison Shearmur will executive produce.

A quintet of relative newcomers — RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Naomi Scott and Dacre Montgomery — are playing the teens who, infused with powers, form a colorful team who must stop the world from being conquered.

Banks will play the classic Power Ranger character Rita Repulsa, an alien witch who has designs on the planet.

Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (The Last Witch Hunter, the upcoming Gods of Egypt) wrote the script.

Last year, Banks directed, acted in and produced Pitch Perfect 2 for Universal and also reprised her role of Effie Trinket for Mockingjay Part 2, the final installment of the Hunger Games franchise that was made by Lionsgate.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…

Enter For A Chance To Win Pass To See TULLY on May 1st at 7:00 PM in Dallas.

From Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody – the team behind JUNO and YOUNG ADULT – comes a new grown-up comedy with their signature style of irreverence and insight. Academy Award winner Charlize Theron gives an extraordinary performance in TULLY - the story of a parent stretched to her limit, the bonds of female friendship and how we can embrace the messiness of life. While it might not have been intentional, TULLY completes a trilogy that began with JUNO and YOUNG ADULT. Each features a female protagonist at a different stage of her life, and each film explores how complicated it is to find happiness.
