Joseph Kahn — if you can believe it — doesn’t want your money, crowdfunding, or anything else you might throw at him for his dark take on the Power Rangers. In the description of the POWER/RANGERS short, he clearly states this was made as an exhibition, and not for profit, or as a pilot. But you may think otherwise once you see who was cast to play the Rangers.

James Van Der Beek stars as Rocky, the Red Ranger, alongside Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), the Pink Ranger. Holy Hell!
