LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bryan Cranston is teaming up with the Power Rangers for a film reboot of the franchise.

The “Breaking Bad” star says on Twitter that he’ll play Power Rangers creator Zordon in the 2017 film. Cranston, as Zordon, will use his team of teenage superheroes to square off against Elizabeth Banks’ alien villain Rita Repulsa in “The Power Rangers.”

Cranston has been busy on the big screen since the end of “Breaking Bad” in 2013. He starred in 2014′s summer blockbuster, “Godzilla,” and will portray a U.S. Customs agent who helped bust drug lord Pablo Escobar in “The Infiltrator,” which is set to be released next month.
