“Stranger Things” star Dacre Montgomery would love to do a “Power Rangers” sequel, and doesn’t actually think the possibility of a second film is “out of sight.”
“I think that cast, we’re like family — we have a little group chat — we all would love to do a sequel,” Montgomery told TheWrap’s Beatrice Verhoeven during a recent interview. “I know we’d all be there in a heartbeat and if something does come through the woodwork, which I’m not suggesting it wouldn’t — I actually don’t think it’s out of sight, but if it does, we’d be very excited to do a sequel.”
Montgomery starred as Jason, also known as Red Ranger in Lionsgate’s “Power Rangers” film earlier this year. The Dean Israelite-directed film also starred Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Ludi Lin, Becky G., Elizabeth Banks and Bryan Cranston.
“Power Rangers,” produced for an estimated $100 million, grossed $40 million its opening weekend and went on to earn $142.3 million worldwide.
The movie retold the story of the TV show’s first season back in 1993, with five teens from Angel Grove being summoned by the mysterious Zordon (Cranston) to become the Power Rangers and take on his former ally-turned-villain, Rita Repulsa (Banks). The film received mixed reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, with current scoring at 44 percent.
Montgomery most recently starred on the second season of “Stranger Things” and is in pre-production for “The True History of the Kelly Gang.”
Lionsgate and Saban Films have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
