Red Ranger Has Been Found!

It seems that shortly after they had announced who would be playing the Pink Ranger, we already have found our Red Ranger. Lionsgate and Saban Entertainment were working hard together and have declared Dacre Montgomery as their new official Red Ranger.[1]

His character’s description according to a rumor is as follows:

Jason – 17 years old, the makings of someone or something great if he would just get out of his own way. Jason was a legend of this town—a freshman quarterback with the skills to take him all the way. People knew his name. Children wore his jersey. Until, one night Jason wrapped his car around a pole and busted out his knee. Everything Jason was going to become ended in an instant. And with it, he lost himself. When we meet him at the start of the film, he’s a kid in need of redemption. By the end, he’ll be leading this disparate group of teens to shed their individual baggage and find who they truly are.

It will be interesting to see what other Power Rangers are heading our way and wonder if they are also sticking to rather obscure actors, as Montgomery only appeared in the short Betrand The Terrible and the TV movie Family Tree Pilot Trailer.
