Hollywood is taking another stab at bringing the Power Rangers to the big screen, two decades after the last film flopped at the box office.

Lions Gate Entertainment said it is partnering with Haim Saban's Saban Entertainment to produce a live-action feature film based on the Spandex-wearing, martial arts superheroes who are usually called upon to save the world.

Saban said in a statement that Lions Gate, the maker of young adult blockbuster series Twilight and The Hunger Games, was the "perfect home" for the Power Rangers.

The last time the morphing teenage characters appeared in a film was 1997 for Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, which grossed a dismal 8.1 million US dollars in America.

The Power Rangers have been on US TV since 1993.
