Original Red Ranger Austin St. John in Talks to Return for Dino Charge
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Actor Austin St. John (Power Ranger's Jason/Red Ranger) is in talks with Saban to return for the upcoming Power Rangers: Dino Charge television series. St. John made the announcement at the Original Rangers panel at the Power Morphicon 4 event in Pasadena, California. He did not say in what capacity he would appear in the series.
Saban describes the story:
In Dino Charge, the Paragon Prisms were given to a dozen dinosaurs for safe keeping by an alien, but they were lost when asteroids hit the Earth and wiped out the dinos. Now in the present day, an intergalactic bounty hunter starts sniffing around Earth looking for the Prisms in order to harness their power and annihilate the world, so a team of Power Rangers forms to find the Prisms first and fight the bounty hunter and other threats with dino-powered swords, blasters, Zords and Megazords.
Saban is combining the Tensō Sentai Goseiger and Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger television series for Power Rangers Super Megaforce, a continuation of Power Rangers Megaforce. Power Rangers Megaforce ended last year, and Power Rangers Super Megaforce premiered in February.
Lionsgate will debut the new Power Rangers live-action film in theaters on July 22, 2016. Writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are penning the script. The two writers previously wrote the X-Men: First Class and Thor films. Star Trek and Transformers writer Roberto Orci is also signing on as executive producer.
