Don’t believe everything you read online.  Blake Foster, who played Justin Stewart the Blue Turbo Ranger posted a message that Jason David Frank would be appearing in the upcoming ‘Saban’s Power Rangers’ and that makes total sense, considering that Frank is probably the most popular cast member in the series, having originated as Tommy Oliver the first Green Ranger during the first season of the show.  But Frank took to Facebook to debunk that particular rumor:

Walter Emanuel Jones, who played Zack, the original Black Ranger, had previously stated that none of the original cast would be in the new movie and that appears to be the truth.

‘Saban’s Power Rangers’ stars Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa and Bryan Cranston as Zordon and newcomers as the new Rangers: Naomi Scott as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G. as Trini the Yellow Ranger, RJ Cyler as Billy Cranston the Blue Ranger, Ludi Lin as Zack Taylor the Black Ranger and Dacre Montgomery as Jason Lee Scott the Red Ranger.

Below you can see Foster’s post which was in reference to the new look of villain Goldar:


As you can see, Foster let slip that Frank would be in the movie, but Frank himself has debunked that.

Frank previously hit the big screen with the Rangers in the first ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ movie and in the low-budget ‘Power Rangers Turbo’ sequel, in which Foster also appeared.

“Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.”

‘Saban’s Power Rangers’ is directed by Dean Israelite and stars Bryan Cranston (Zordon), Elizabeth Banks (Rita Repulsa), Naomi Scott (Kimberly/Pink Ranger), Becky G. (Trini/Yellow Ranger), RJ Cyler (Billy Cranston/Blue Ranger), Ludi Lin (Zack Taylor/Black Ranger), Dacre Montgomery (Jason Lee Scott/Red Ranger), David Denman (Sam Scott), Emily Maddison (Rebecca), Sarah Grey (Amanda), and the voice of Bill Hader (Alpha 5).
