no title

It's Morphin' Time for Elizabeth Banks! (Well, sort of…)

The Pitch Perfect 2 director is set to star as the villain in the upcoming Power Rangers movie!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress has signed on to play the iconic character Rita Repulsa — the alien witch who is bent on world domination!

The 41-year-old will be trying to put a stop to a group of teenagers who are infused with powers — played by RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludy Lin, Naomi Scott, and Dacre Montgomery!

Rita was the OG villain of the hit 1990's TV series, and we think Banks is an inspired choice to play the campy yet scary character!

Plus, the actress is already used to wearing crazy costumes playing Effie Trinket in the Hunger Games, so pulling off Rita's bewitching wardrobe should be a breeze!

With the addition of Banks, and the fact that the X-Men: First Class writers are penning the script, we're definitely showing our excitement for the Power Rangers movie — and Rita is, too…

It doesn't look good for Ricardo Medina Jr.

As we previously reported, Ricardo was arrested for the murder of his roommate back in February of 2015 only to shortly be released for "self-defense".

Now cops say Medina is guilty in the stabbing death of Josh Shutter and they re-arrested him early Thursday morning. The former Power Rangers: Samurai star could face up to 26 years if convicted of the heinous crime.

For those who don't know, Ric allegedly stabbed Josh multiple times with a samurai sword in a fight related to his girlfriend. What's especially creepy about the incident is that the 38-year-old played a samurai on the beloved Power Rangers show.

We'll keep you updated as this sad case progresses.
