PROJECT ALMANAC'S Dean Israelite In Talks To Direct POWER RANGERS


“Project Almanac” filmmaker Dean Israelite is in negotiations to direct the “Power Rangers” movie for Lionsgate and Saban Brands, TheWrap has learned.

Israelite is an up-and-coming filmmaker who is a huge fan of the franchise and aims to bring a fresh voice to the property. He has been courted for several tentpoles around Hollywood since but he has turned them all down while waiting for the right one.

With the time travel-themed “Project Almanac,” Israelite proved he can get strong results out of a young ensemble and a limited budget for an original sci-fi movie.

First announced in September, “Power Rangers” was written by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, whose credits include Marvel’s “Thor” and “X-Men: First Class.”
