At this point, we can’t wait for the inevitable gritty Care Bears reboot.

James Van Der Beek inexplicably stars in this super-dark – thematically and visuallyPower Rangers short film directed by Joseph Kahn, titled “Power/Rangers.” Made in conjunction with the producer of The Grey and Lone Survivor, Adi Shankar, it also stars Katee Sackhoff, who’s probably best known from Battlestar Galactica.

It’s bizarre, to say the least: Van Der Beek sports a robot leg and is interrogating Sackhoff, who’s playing a former Pink Ranger and is also tied to a chair. She makes multiple references to Van Der Beek being a traitor, and there are robots involved, we guess?

Kahn told HitFix that half the challenge of the project was to make a “dark and gritty” project out of a completely silly project, and in that respect, he’s definitely succeeded, though to what end we’re not sure.

But don’t you just want to watch James Van Der Beek do some sweet martial arts? Yes, yes you do.
