Martial Artist Ludi Lin Of ‘Monster Hunt’ Fame Will Play The Black Ranger In ‘Power Rangers’ Reboot?
Ludi Lin of “Monster Hunt” fame will be next in line to try on the Power Rangers’ Black Ranger suit in the reboot movie of “Power Rangers.” Read On!
The widely held children’s television show of the 90s made it public via a post on the Power Rangers’ official Twitter account.
“Meet @Ludi_Lin who is morphing into the Black Ranger in the #PowerRangers Movie!”
The Beijing-based actor once immigrated to Canada wherein he successfully finished his Theatre Performance studies in the esteemed University of British Columbia. Lin’s other acting credits includes 2012’s “The Shannon Entrophy” and “Holiday Spin” and “My Roman Holiday” released the following year, wherein he also took the lead role.
His big screen resume will immediately be assessed as one which belongs to an “upstart” but the model of Oriental descent has a strict background in Professional Muay Thai, Advanced Jiu Jit Tsu, Acrobatic Kungfu and Broad Sword as cited by his talent agency. Abilities which will harmonize well in a superhero movie jam-packed with action scenes.
The start up again will still be under Saban Entertainment as it takes a partnership with Lionsgate in reintroducing the pop-culture brand for this generation with a 2017 release.
Earlier this month, a roll call of novice actors lined-up for Director Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) and screenwriters Zach Stent and Ashley Miller (X-Men:First Class, Thor) for a who’s who selection of the new “Power Rangers” roster. Variety reported that Dacre Montgomery (Family Tree) will be the next “Red Ranger,” while Naomi Scott (The Martian) grabbed the role of the “Pink Ranger.”
The live-action film will be a present-day take of the franchise and will still embrace the familiar yet endearing story arc of unwary-teenagers-bestowed-with-extraordinary-powers as they duke it out with alien forces in order to protect the world. Despite the well-known ground covered by the “Power Rangers” movie, Israelite told IGN that their adaptation will both have a mature and lively tone.
“I hope it’s going to feel very grounded at the same time, and very contemporary and have a real edge to it, and a real gut to it,” the director said in the interview.
