A film version of live action children's television series Power Rangers is in the works.

Lionsgate and Haim Saban announced that they have struck a deal to produce a new live action film based on Saban's 1993 television series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, reported Ace Showbiz.

The new franchise will reportedly re-imagine the Power Rangers as a group of high school kids with unusual super powers, who must learn to harness their abilities as a group in order to save the world.

"Lionsgate is the perfect home for elevating our Power Rangers brand to the next level," Saban said.

"They have the vision, marketing prowess and incredible track record in launching breakthrough hits from The Hunger Games to Twilight and Divergent. In partnership with the Lionsgate team, we're confident that we will capture the world of the Power Rangers and translate it into a unique and memorable motion picture phenomenon with a legacy all its own."
