The upcoming Powers Rangers movie reboot has added The Office and Big Fish actor David Denman to its cast. The Hollywood Reporter says Denman will play Red Ranger’s father, Sam Scott, in the action film.
Denman joins the cast for the Lionsgate-produced movie following the news in February that Hunger Games actress Elizabeth Banks would play the role of evil alien Rita Repulsa.
The teen heroes are played by Dacre Montgomery (Red Ranger), Naomi Scott (Pink Ranger), Becky G (Yellow Ranger), RJ Cyler (Blue Ranger) and Ludi Lin (Black Ranger).
Project Almanac director Dean Israelite is on board to helm the Power Rangers movie, while X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz wrote the original draft of the script. Screenwriting team Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, best known for The Last Witch Hunter and Gods of Egypt, have written the most current draft.
The Power Rangers movie is set to release in 2017.
