________The Breakdown_______

  • Power Rangers will keep its 'Samurai' theme for two years!

    'Rangers' revamps
    Aggressive rollout ahead for Power Rangers

    The return of the Power Rangers to Saban Brands will mean an aggressive rollout onto multimedia platforms, a new Samurai theme and even a bit more "fun," according to Saban Brands prexy Elie Dekel.
    "We're embracing the new digital media age," said Dekel of the planned apps, games and streaming content, adding that Ranger-related live entertainment and a feature film are on the horizon. Saban Brands also announced the Samurai theme for the upcoming season, premiering next year on Nickelodeon. While themes changed annually in years past, the Samurai theme will extend for two years.

    "We always introduce new elements throughout the course of the season, including the occasional new ranger," said Dekel, adding that Saban will keep the five original rangers and other core elements of the nearly 20-year-old "Power Rangers" series.

    "The DNA remains constant," Dekel added.

    New announcements come on the heels of Saban's re-acquisition of the series from Disney in May ( Daily Variety , May 14). The Mouse House had purchased the series from Saban in 2001. The company will also bring back Jonathan Tzachor, who produced hundreds of episodes since the early nineties.

    "Haim Saban and his team have created a property with incredible staying power, and we're excited to partner with them on this newest chapter of 'Power Rangers, ' " said Cyma Zarghami, president, Nickelodeon and MTVN Kids and Family Group.

    " 'Power Rangers' is one of the world's leading children's entertainment properties and we are delighted that the control of its destiny is in our hands," said Haim Saban, chairman and CEO of Saban Capital Group.

  • Saban has made a new deal with Namco Bandai and Bandai America, for the toys as usual and new video games from Namco.

    “Bandai America is committed to developing innovative toys that will reignite the Power Rangers brand as it embarks upon its third decade of pop culture dominance,†said Masayuki Matsuo, chairman and chief executive officer, Bandai America Incorporated. “The renewal of the Bandai and Saban collaboration will spark new fans and bolster longtime fan loyalty by delivering quality entertainment and create imaginative, modern play experiences.â€

  • 700 old episodes (original MMPR to RPM) will air on Nicktoons 7 days a week!
  • The new season will feature 43 episodes. (source)
  • Jonathan Tzachor will be in charge of the new 18th season. Tzachor has been a producer on Power Rangers since the beginning with MMPR and was responsible for many fan favorite seasons such as InSpace and Time Force.
  • Tony Oliver has confirmed that he is writing for the 2011 season of Power Rangers.
  • Saban is making deals for a movie. Nothing else has been announced. Most likely it will through Paramount Films, which Nickelodeon is allied with. Nickelodeon has been developing a new film division, with Ninja Turtles being one of the productions.
  • Movie production workers from Auckland, such as costume designers and set painters are being offered three-year contracts on [TV show] Power Rangers. (this means Saban is serious about quality with Power Rangers!)
  • Ron Wasserman will not be returning to perform music for the show in any capacity.
  • Brian Casentini will help develop new Power Rangers skein -- Haim Saban's new shingle Saban Brands has named Brian Casentini veep of development and production.
  • Nickelodeon/Paramount might not have the dvd rights to Power Rangers. It's rumored Saban Brands is looking for a third party to publish and distribute such dvds.
    [hide]
    The long-running show has morphed into many forms over the years: it was established in 1993 as the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, since then the series has gone through 14 more incarnations (not to mention a pair of theatrical movies!) through to 2009's Power Rangers RPM. The shows were originally produced by Haim Saban and Shuki Levy at Saban Entertainment. In 1995 Fox wanted to establish their loosely-named "Fox Kids" lineup as an actual company holding that became "Fox Family Worldwide", and a merger with Saban Ent. was part of that process (generally speaking, it was Fox that produced the two Power Ranger box office films, and it is thought that Fox therefore continues to hold rights to them even now, as a result). In 2001, Fox sold off the "Fox Family Worldwide" subsidiary to Disney, where it became ABC Family Worldwide. With that sale Saban stopped producing any of these series as of Power Rangers Wild Force; mid-show Disney/Buena Vista took over production. But Disney ended production of new episodes in 2009 with RPM, and for the 2010 season only re-purposed the original Morphin' episodes for broadcast. There have been roughly 30 DVD releases in the USA over the years (including the two films), but all have been single-disc releases, often of a "themed"/"best-of" nature; it is rare for any of the 15 Power Rangers programs to have every episode released on DVD in the States. Although Disney-affiliated Jetix has caused season-set releases of various PR incarnations to happen overseas, Disney has shown little interest in doing similar packages in North America. Nor had they come to the negotiating table when "indie" studios (such as Shout! Factory) expressed an interest in licensing the DVD rights. This has been the hold-up for Power Rangers season sets thus far. A week ago, however, it was announced that Haim Saban's newly-formed Saban Brands company had re-acquired the rights to the original 15 programs from Disney. The following day a press release announced that Saban Brands had finalized a deal with Nickelodeon to begin re-airing the existing 700 episodes on the NickToons channel, with a new 16th incarnation of the show planned to broadcast on Nickelodeon and NickToons in 2011. In the past week, we've received e-mails from passionate fans, who assume this means that Nickelodeon/Paramount MUST therefore have the DVD rights to these old episodes, yes? Well, hold on there...don't go assuming that! NOTHING in any of the public announcements has mentioned home videos rights. It's possible that Nick/Par did acquire those rights, on the other hand we know that several indie studio (including Shout!) are speaking to Saban Brands about the possibility of releasing Power Ranger DVDs through their companies. Whatever happens, it won't be immediately (because it still takes time to produce a DVD, of course). We'll keep an eye on it, but right now nothing is assured in the way of a DVD release just yet. However, things are looking up for the first time in a while; perhaps the long wait will soon be over!

    2dqrrrd.jpg


    Nickelodeon has made a deal to bring 20 new episodes of "Power Rangers Samurai," above, to the channel.

    When Haim Saban reacquired Power Rangers from Disney in May, he led them to believe that the series was headed for the new kids network The Hub. After it was sold to him, he went straight to Nickelodeon. Cyma Zarghami, President of Nickelodeon, was quick to accept his offer. The 700-episode series as well as the new season Power Rangers Samurai are coming to Nickelodeon and Nicktoons in early-2011.
    With Power Rangers as a main example, Nickelodeon has loosened its policy on acquiring shows that they don’t own themselves to broadcast and support with Nickelodeon’s powerful marketing.

    Power Rangers,†the martial arts series, is a prime example. Ms. Zarghami made a deal in May with the investor Haim Saban, who owns the series, to bring 20 new episodes and 700 reruns to Nickelodeon and Nicktoons starting early next year.

    The deal was a jab at Disney, which had just sold “Power Rangers†to Mr. Saban. Disney was under the impression that he planned to license the show not to the rival Nickelodeon but to the Hub, a less-threatening children’s channel that is a joint venture of Discovery Communications and Hasbro.

    Mr. Saban says he is impressed with how quickly Ms. Zarghami acted when he approached her about a deal. “The conversation took two minutes,†he says. He describes her as “very tough†but also “super professional†in negotiations. “I always ask for some compassion,†he adds, “but I don’t get very far.â€

______Meet the Rangers______
Character descriptions and the actors and actresses playing them!
[hide]
2wc37de.jpg
MIA (PINK RANGER)
Played by: Erika Fong
Bio 1 (from casting scripts)
She is confident, intuitive, and sensitive. MIA was raised by her grandmother, away from her parents. Her toughness and desire to help others is a cover for the pain she felt during her childhood separation from her mother. She is the mother/big sister of the Rangers. MIA's dream is to become a wife and mother and lead a normal life. However, due to her upbringing, her image of that "normal" life is childish and disconnected from reality.

Bio 2 (from nick.com)
Mia is a confident, sensitive big sister to the Power Rangers. She is so eager to give that sometimes her own needs get overlooked. She considers herself to be a great cook, but you'd have a hard time finding another Ranger who agreed. One thing they can agree on is that Mia is a crucial part of their monster-fighting family.

pr2011yellowcopy.png
EMILY(YELLOW RANGER)
Played by: Brittany Pirtle
Bio 1 (from casting scripts)
EMILY is the youngest Ranger and is loved and cared for by all. She is innocent, sweet, and gentle, but also very strong when needed. She was raised in the country and comes to the city for the first time when she joins the Rangers. Her older sister was supposed to be the Yellow Ranger, but when she fell ill, EMILY had to take her place. During her early childhood, she always relied on her sister, who would play the flute to console young EMILY. After her illness, the roles were reversed and it became EMILY who played the flute to console her weak older sister. She constantly is plagued by the feeling that she will not live up to what her sister might have been as a Ranger.

Bio 2 (from nick.com)
Emily is a sweet, innocent country girl who was never supposed to be a Power Ranger. It was her sister who was destined for the squad, but an illness forced Emily to take her place. Although she is a bit of a fish out of water, the passion of the team and the bustle of the city inspires Emily to train hard and make her sister proud

3v2uf.jpg
MIKE (GREEN RANGER)
Played by: Hector David Jr
Bio 1 (from casting scripts)
MIKE is the Green Ranger. He is creative, rebellious, irreverent, and
lazy; but never afraid to think outside the box. He lost his mother at an
early age and grew up mostly with his father, who was more of a big
brother and friend than a role model. When he first joins the other
Rangers, he realizes that his upbringing did not properly prepare him to
be a warrior. He is also a high school dropout.
MIKE is very creative in battle and despite a relaxed and care free
attitude, he longs to be the best fighter he can be, even hoping to, one-
day surpass, JAYDEN. He knows there is much hard work ahead of him and does
not give up.

Bio 2 (from nick.com)
Mike isn't a troublemaker, but he is a bit of a rebel. He loves video games and hanging out with his friends. And although he is a very talented Ranger, this free spirit's wild, goofy sense of humor doesn't always line up with the ways of the Samurai. But this shouldn't stop him from giving his all to every battle


21mystt.jpg
KEVIN (BLUE RANGER)
Played by: Najee De-Tiege
Bio 1 (from casting scripts)
KEVIN's element is water. He is well educated and a great swordsman. He is extremely disciplined and lives by the book. He is confident, not afraid to take charge if needed. By becoming a Power Ranger, he is putting on hold a career as a performer. He often misses it but knows that saving the world and fighting evil must be his priority. He is also a bit of a mama's boy, although he would never admit it.

Bio 2 (from nick.com)
Kevin is a disciplined master swordsman and a professional swimmer. His strict but wise father trained him from birth in the ways of the Samurai. He's often the cause of comic relief in the group, but when it comes time to get a job done, you want this warrior on your team.


2i9qzuw.jpg
JAYDEN (RED RANGER)
Played by: Alex Heartman
Bio 1 (from casting scripts)
JAYDEN is the leader of the Power Rangers. His element is fire. He is of
few words, but when he speaks, means what he says. He lost his parents
when he was young and was raised by a mentor. He is an excellent warrior
and the fight against evil is his sole focus. He has spent most of his
life isolated from society.
He often remembers his father's advice to never give up, to carry on the
family name no matter what. He lives by this promise and does everything
he can to protect his family name and fulfill his duty to fight evil and
protect the world.

Bio 2 (from nick.com)
Like his zord, the lion, Jayden is a ferocious leader. He is a man of few words, but when he speaks, every breath counts. He is kind and caring but knows how to be firm when the time comes. He also has a secret that he must keep from all the other Rangers.

10ykwax.png
WESLEY (GOLD RANGER)
Played by: Steven Skyler
Bio 1 (from casting scripts)
Unlike the others, WESLEY did not receive any formal training and mastered his fighting skills on his own. He is a childhood friend of the Red Ranger. By day, he operates a sushi stand and although he has moderate success, his real dream is to open a full-on sushi restaurant. He also is a programmer and is constantly developing new weapons for the Rangers. His element is light and he is the most outgoing and positive of the group. Unashamed of his humble origins, he is honored and grateful to fight as a Power Ranger. He is an excellent fighter and total team player.

Power Character Descriptions and Notes:
These two characters are similar to Laurel and Hardy or Bulk and Skull, both with over the top slap stick skills. They work as street cleaners and have an entertaining way of picking up trash alongside the streets by dancing their way through the streets with broom in hand. They are the comedic relief and the fun side of each story. They are constantly getting themselves in difficult but comedic situations.

Skinny Mack
Played By: Name withheld by Saban Ninjas...

He has a slim, lanky build with great comedic abilities. He is someone that you look at and he makes you laugh. Skinny Mack and his sidekick, Big Jack work as street cleaners and have an entertaining way of picking up trash alongside the streets by dancing their way through the streets with broom in hand. They are the comedic relief and the fun side of each story. They are constantly getting themselves in difficult but comedic situations. These two characters are similar to Laurel and Hardy or Bulk and Skull, both with over the top slap stick skills. Dance, street dancing or hip hop abilities are a big plus.

Big Jack, 18 -23 year old all ethnicity male. He is on the heavier side with great comedic abilities. He is also some who you look at and he can make you laugh. Dance or hip hop abilities are a big plus. Big Jack and his sidekick, Skinny Mack work as street cleaners and have an entertaining way of picking up trash alongside the streets by dancing their way through the streets with broom in hand.

Yellow & Gold Ranger Casting Script said:
EXT. CITY - DAY

WESLEY sets up his food cart on a pedestrian walkway by the lake. He sees AVA walking towards him. She looks troubled.

WESLEY
Hey, Ava. You came to help me?

AVA
Looks like I got you in a lot of trouble.

WESLEY
In trouble? Are you joking? Thanks to you, I will be able to open my own restaurant. I've been interviewed for magazines! Gold Sushi is famous!

AVA
Are you sure this is what you want?

WESLEY
Of course! It's my life's dream.

AVA
Is it?

WESLEY's happy face fades.

WESLEY sits.

WESLEY
Ever since I took over for my father, I promised myself that I would someday turn this place into a great restaurant. When I was a kid, my father sold this business and I was so upset about it, I ran away from home. I'm starting to understand more why he did it.

AVA
Wesley...

WESLEY
Even if it's not exactly how I imagined it, I still get to open a restaurant, right. I can always serve sushi too.

AVA sits opposite him. She pretends to be a customer.

AVA
I would like one piece of sushi, please.

WESLEY prepares a tuna roll and serves AVA.

WESLEY
Here you are.

She takes a bite. It's bad. Wesley looks disappointed.

AVA
It doesn't taste as good. Tastes kind of like curry.

WESLEY
I've been up to my eyeballs in curry.

AVA
I think I prefer the old Wesley. Your dream was a sushi restaurant, not curry, right?

WESLEY stares at the pot of curry next to the fish and wasabi. He knows AVA is right.

Pink & Yellow Ranger Casting Script said:
EXT. HALLWAY - DAY
SADIE stands outside the gym where the rescued children play. She is wounded just above her right hip. Slowly, she sits on the floor and leans against the wall. AVA comes looking for her.

AVA
Sadie, Sadie, are you okay?

SADIE
Yes, it's nothing.

AVA notices blood.

AVA
You're injured. Let me see.

SADIE
I told you. Don't worry. Just go back. I'll meet you inside.

AVA
I won't leave you like this.

SADIE
I'm fine, please.

AVA
I think you need to rest a while. The kids are fine.

SADIE looks into the room and sees a group of girls playing with dolls and toys.

SADIE
I always wanted to play like that.

SADIE turns to AVA. She smiles but is sad.

SADIE
I never got to play with other girls. When I was young,
all I wanted to do was play house, pretend I was the mom, but...I always had to practice, to train...I'm sorry for talking this way. I don't quite feel like myself.

AVA
It's okay. That's your dream? To marry...

SADIE
Sometimes, I just wish I could have a normal life; become a
normal wife, maybe even a normal mother one day.

AVA
I am sure you will be all of those things.

SADIE
Well, that was the plan. But sometimes, I think
about what would happen if we...

AVA
I know...

SADIE brushes it off with a smile.

SADIE
I'm sorry. I'm just being...such a--

AVA
No. It's fine. I understand.

SADIE
Let's go back inside. C'mon. I don't know
what's gotten into me. I'm getting so emotional...

SADIE smiles to AVA and tries to get back up, but she is held back by the shooting pain in her side.

Gold Ranger & Blue Ranger Casting Script said:
EXT. WOODS BY A CREEK - DAY

WESLEY and BARON sit in a cave. Some evil foot soldiers pass by, but do not see them. Wesley ties his wounded shoulder with a rag while BARON tries to make a call on his cell phone.

BARON
No reception here either.

WESLEY tries to get up.

WESLEY
Let's go back up or else the girls will-

BARON pulls him back down.

BARON
You can't fight like that. I'll go alone.

WESLEY
There's no way you'll make it.

BARON stands up to leave.

BARON
You stay here. If by chance, you make it down, contact Reese and the others.

WESLEY
Wait...

WESLEY tries to get up but at first is too weak. BARON is attacked by foot soldiers and WESLEY comes and saves him.

BARON
What do you think you're doing? I told you-

WESLEY
Why are you always trying to protect me?

BARON
I'm not, I just...

WESLEY
If you really considered me an equal, you wouldn't ask me to stay behind. You wouldn't ask Reese, would you? See, you don't take me seriously. I have always wanted to be a Ranger and I am up to the challenge. To you, it might seem like I'm just playing Super Hero, but if someone or something is about to take a life... I will fight to save it.

WESLEY grabs BARON's shirt.

WESLEY
Heroes do not worry about themselves when others are in need.

WESLEY and BARON lock stares.

BARON
It looks like you might be a hero after all. Let's see how you fight when the odds are stacked against you.

WESLEY
Let's go. We'll show them what we can do together.

WESLEY begins to ascend. BARON stays behind.

BARON
Don't worry. Reese and the others will come.

WESLEY stops, surprised.

WESLEY
You spoke with them?

BARON
No, but they'll be ready for practice soon. When they see I'm not there, they'll know something is wrong.

BARON walks past WESLEY.

WESLEY
Hey, wait for me.

WESLEY follows BARON up the hill.

WESLEY
They would know just because you missed practice?

BARON
I don't live a disciplined life for nothing. Reese and the others will come.

WESLEY
Okay. Entrusting your life means to have faith in the others...

BARON
Not faith. Certainty.

They reach the top.

BARON
We just have to hold them off until they get here.

An army of foot soldiers awaits them. It's time for battle.

WESLEY
Let's hope you're right. Either way, the battle begins now.

Princess & Red Ranger Casting Script
[hide]
Princess & Red Ranger Casting Script said:
The PRINCESS has been living in hiding all her life, cared for and educated by George. Her father died in battle and her mother died soon after her birth. She trained all her life to become the ultimate warrior; to master the power to Seal the Evil Lord, the monster responsible for her father's death. The Princess is confident and regal. She is not afraid to express herself and when she does is very direct. Underneath her warrior mask lies a sensitive young woman.

INT. MANSION BEDROOM - DAY
Reese enters the Princess' room where she lies in bed bandaged and bruised.
The door opens and Wesley stumbles in as he was trying to eavesdrop on their conversation. Embarrassed, he leaves.

PRINCESS
Forgive Wesley. He only tries to protect me.

REESE
Of course.
(a beat.)

PRINCESS
I always wondered what my double would be like.

PRINCESS turns towards Reese and smiles.

PRINCESS
You are so much more suited for this than I am.

The Princess slowly sits up, wincing in pain.

PRINCESS
But one thing remains the same. You are as lonely as me. Having George or Richard is helpful, but one is always alone in the end.

REESE
Yes, but...

PRINCESS
But what?

REESE
Well, there will always be those
who stand by us.

PRINCESS
The warriors, yes. I understood that also, when I came here. That it was a mistake to think that I, alone, could protect the Shiba and cast the Seal. Now I know...there is no way for me to do it without them.

REESE
I'm starting to understand that too. The faces of each warrior pass through their minds.

PRINCESS
Reese, I have a plan, but I need
your help.

Red Ranger & Yellow Ranger Casting Script
[hide]
Red Ranger & Yellow Ranger Casting Script said:
EXT. MANSION - NIGHT
Ava sits alone. She has her sister's letter clenched in her hand. Reese joins her.

REESE
There is nothing you could have done. If the roles had been reversed, you would have also tried to protect someone. Best thing for you to do now is heal and recover.

Reese notices the letter crumpled up in Ava's hands.

REESE
That letter was sent to you. What
have you done to it?

Reese takes the letter and tried to straighten it on his lap.

REESE
You should be grateful to have a sister who worries about you.

AVA
I feel like I am letting her down. I rely too much on Baron and the others. They're carrying me.

REESE
I am not too sure about that.

Baron eavesdrops from a distance.

REESE
I highly doubt that the others feel that you rely on them.

AVA
You know, lately, I feel like something is not quite right with Baron.

Baron is surprised.

AVA
Sadie noticed it too, I think, but hasn't said anything to me. Maybe she's trying to protect me. I don't know...I am just starting to realize it now but I'm sure it has happened in the past, I was just totally unaware.

Ava stands and takes a few steps towards the garden. She notices the full moon.

AVA
I know now that its not enough just to keep up with the others. I must also be mindful of my sister and what she would have done. She believes in me, believes that I do my best. But I need to try even harder. I won’t let her down.

She walks off. Reese looks at the wrinkled letter in his hand.

Juzo & Red Ranger Casting Script
[hide]
JUZO: He was once a skilled Samurai Warrior, who fell ill and sold his soul to the underworld in exchange for eternal life. Juzo has no master, no followers. His sole mission is to find and fight a worthy opponent.
When he sees REESE fighting, he recognizes his swordsmanship and seeks him out.

EXT. CAMPFIRE - NIGHT
Juzo sits with REESE. He has saved Reese's life, but Reese is also his captive.

JUZO
The poison is wearing off, but you still need to relax. It's not time for you to fight yet.

REESE
I am grateful for your help. But I don't want to fight with someone who fights for game.

JUZO
If a spark flies at your face, you will move to get out of the way...

REESE thinks to himself.

JUZO (CONT’D)
My desire is to use the forbidden sword to fight a worthy opponent.

REESE
You think that's the way of the Samurai?

JUZO
I'll tell you the way of the Samurai. It's not sacrifice, but pleasure.

REESE
So...you harm for pleasure?

JUZO
...pleasure that never ends...what can you do with just a few decades of normal human life? To only get sick and die... That's why I moved to the underworld.

REESE
I saw your family's grave. Do you not regret it?

JUZO
The only thing I regret is my craving for hurt and disaster. I must satisfy my desires. I will fight until my bones are minced to the marrow.

Skinny Mack & Big Jack Casting Script
[hide]
EXT Park - day

Skinny Mack and Big Jack get their groove on as they are walking through Bark Park in their cleanup getup and gear with a dozen clothes pins attached to their uniform.

SKINNY MACK
Oh, a Hot dog.

Big Jack looks as a wiener dog walks by.

BIG JACK
Yeah, that’s Hot Dog alright!

SKINNY MACK
No, I mean a hot dog

(He finds a hot dog on the ground and picks it up with his trash grabber tongs.)

BIG JACK
Oh, a hot dog.

SKINNY MACK
Did you know that a dog is man's best friend?

BIG JACK
Yes, but cats have nine lives.

SKINNY MACK
But we wouldn't have a job if wasn't for dogs.

BIG JACK
Guess you're right about that.

SKINNY MACK
(He attaches a clothes pin on his nose as he goes to scoop the poop.)
Wow, looks like Skippy got into the family barbecue last night, looks like a whole corn cob.

BIG JACK
(Oblivious to what Skinny Mack is doing, he sings and dances as he daydreams about the perfect barbecue.)
Mm mm….. Barbecue. Hot Dogs, Corn, Ribs… I could go for a barbecue right now.

SKINNY MACK
Big J, You always have food on your mind. Let’s get back to work.

SKINNY MACK AND BIG JACK
(Singing and dancing away)
I had a dog named Hooper, made a mess on the lawn, thank you Hooper for makin' us the coolest Pooper Scoopers!

Walking the dogs….. walking the dogs…. walking the dogs!

Audition Controversy______
[hide]
Guys, I have some pretty displeasing. Like...EXTREMELY displeasing. This comes from someone who I never was contacted by before, but is definitely involved with casting.

Apparently contracts came in today, and they were so ridiculous that during the screen testings...a lot of the actors/actresses walked out without signing. ...The would not let none of them audition "without" signing. It is said that most of them had no idea what was in the contract and could not audition without signing. Quite a few good actors walked out, which the end result could mean anything now.

In the contract, they cut the money WAY back! Iris had some good choices, but the people (producers I assume) were quote on quote, "ridiculous!" It is said that the role for Yellow went to a very "young looking" girl who looks like she could be 12. A few Pinks were left, but it is unsure who got that.

The Red rangers that were left are said to be all "American-looking" Caucasians, with all other roles pretty much filled up by those who looked like they Asian in them somewhere.

All in all, I have no words for this. Looks like Saban is still cheap. As for Lissa...well she's out. There is said to be some crap part in the contract saying that if you are part of the PRs then you cannot do
ANYTHING else until the end of 2012!

Guys, let's remember something here....

We're hearing this from agent, who's client(s) were NOT happy with the way thing went down. What might be "ridiculous" for one place, could be perfectly fine for another. And the "good actors" who walked, was all subject to a person's opinion and might not have been ANY of the one's we have seen (aside from Lissa).

A good friend of mine has a son that was up for one of the PRs. The whole family is upset because the producers kind of pulled a bait and switch. They cut the pay way, way down, made the contract totally exclusive until the end of 2012 and so many other things that they were in shock. Their agent and attorney advised them not to sign it and he didn't. What was so sad is that the producers said when the final auditioners showed up for their final audition that they had to sign the contract as is or they couldn't do their final audition. He did not sign and said that a lot of girls and boys walked away without signing or auditioning. Some added addendums on the contract but they knew that doing that was basically giving up the role because the producers will not budge on anything. I think that it's a disgrace that someone with so much money is squeezing these kids while dangling bait in front of them knowing that so many of them have a dream to be a Power Ranger. Source

DarkBlaze said:
I get this feeling this person must be an auditioner, because they seem to know quite a bit. Either way, what they posted brings a sense of relief:


Ok kids...here's all the current dirt from an inside source don't ask who just trust.

Callbacks that went on today or yesterday technically went well. They expected people to not like the contracts. They were non-negotiable even though many actors contacted lawyers they wouldn't budge. The actors that came in with addendums did not make the final cut. All in all they still had about 4 people per role at the final mix and match.

The money issue is this. In the casting breakdown (notice) it said 1000 dollars plus 10% per day (for the agents). In the contract it said 700 dollars NEW ZEALAND dollars per day with no 10%. New Zealand is 75 cents on the US dollar. That's the rub. Also the 2012 thing is for conflicts i.e. all children's shows, movies, commercials that will be competition basically. The wording is slightly ambiguous so it may not be that awful. Also it says they can call you back anytime for other shows and movies. It also sets the rate for optional movies and commercials. The rate is lower than union rates.

The yellow ranger is supposed to look young. They didn't look twelve. There were four of them at the final mix and match. The red ranger is supposed to be white and I guess you could call them "all american" looking if you think all white people look american.

At the end of the day they still had way too many qualified people. Most actors were pretty new to acting, but after 3 callbacks their acting ability has been verified. However they never had the actors read with each other, only with the casting director for some reason. They told the actors that they should know the final cast by the latest on Monday.

Then after they pick their six they have an unpaid 2 week training period where any one of them can be cut anytime. Now that's shitty!

Yes there were a lot of Asian looking males, many of them mixed. But there were a number of Blacks and Whites so what. What might please you is that most of the people no matter what role have extensive martial arts or dance experience, even though the costumed characters are stunt people or even stock footage. Height and weight played a major factor as well as they said costumes would be transfered from over from I assume the Japanese version.

Actually, that further shows what a crap deal it is. The 700 NZ will equal 507 US dollars with the current exchange rate, on top of the 10 agency fee that they decided to get rid of which makes the rate barely 450 a day. Add the fact that they don't get ANY residuals from airings or promos, and that they can be working over 12 hour days with no overtime or double-time, and you can see that it's not mudslinging, it really is a crap deal. The exclusivity against other childrens programming is understandable, but the over 50% pay cut at the very last minute is just ridiculous

MominbiLA said:
If you know anyone who was emailed the contract, maybe they'll let you see it. A lot of people who don't have managers or agents were sent it a few days ago as well as all of the reps from those involved. So there are a lot of them floating around. If you read it, you will understand why so many amazing, talented actors walked away. And a lot of entertainment attorneys have said that the producers actually commited an illegal act by making actors sign a contract "under duress" saying that they had to sign or they couldn't audition. I have a feeling we haven't heard the last of this yet.
I guess for all of us moms who have kids who work in this industry, it's sad because there was so much excitement and even though my kids are too small to be involved, they were so excited because who doesn't know about the Power Rangers? We knew of several girls and boys involved and a couple that went to the end.
It's sad what greed can do to people.

Hi Mr Yellow
I asked the girl that went for Yellow if she knew anything about the contracts. She said that the sides they were given down here clearly requested agents NOT to send any actors that were not agreeable to a New Zealand contract for audition.They knew this before they auditioned so they definately were expecting to be paid at the NZ rate that is surprising the American actors. Perhaps it was all just a mix up and the producers were assuming the American agents would be aware that it would be a NZ contract.I hope that makes people feel a little better about it all.

I think by the time we get our first promos for the season, everyone will be overhyped. We want to believe in Saban, Elie, and Tzachor. And I hope we wont be disappointed. But man oh man. So much right now.

All I have to say is Comic-Con has me psyched. THAT is how you fucking promote Power Rangers!

I wonder if they are only calling back people for GREEN since green went first on monday

did anyone else get a callback for next week already???

thespianfish said:
Nothing for me yet, but there's also the part where he doesn't know what day the callback is, so they may not be contacting everyone till they know the days


yah but why would they even bother to give him an early callback if they dont even have the dates down?

also
there have been like a gajillion people on message boards and twitter who went to the 3rd callbacks for all 5 colors and im really surprised that out of all those people only 1 got a callback for next week?
