Elizabeth Banks has been cast as the villainous Rita Repulsa in Lionsgate’s Power Rangers movie. The production tweeted out the news this morning and so did she:

Rita Repulsa, an alien witch in Power Rangers mythology, was the main baddie in the first season of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series in the U.S.

Lionsgate has set a March 24, 2017 release date for its reboot, with the new incarnation serving as an origin story. Dean Isrealite is directing and the ninja-skills foursome will be played by Becky G, Ludi Lin, Dacre Montgomery and R.J. Cyler.
