American singer, rapper and actress Rebbeca Marie Gomez has joined the cast of the forthcoming Power Rangers movie from Lionsgate, the production studio revealed Friday via Twitter.

Power Rangers is scheduled for release on Jan. 13, 2017, and will be directed by Dean Israelite, the South African film director behind Project Almanac.
