Ryan Reynolds to star in 'Detective Pikachu'

Ryan Reynolds Cast As Detective Pikachu                                                                    by Peter Palt

Plot details have also been revealed as the story follows Smith when his character's father is kidnapped, leading to his team-up with Pikachu in order to find him. After being both Green Lantern and Deadpool, this makes sense. Joining Reynolds in the movie are Justice Smith (the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) and Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies). Reynolds' role will reportedly be motion-capture in nature. As fans of the franchise will recall, Pikachu was protagonist Ash's best bud, accompanying the trainer on his adventures as he fought to catch 'em all. Reynolds will play the titular character based on the popular gaming franchise, who is - you guessed it - skilled in catching them all. Goosebumps director Rob Letterman is at the helm of the production.

"Detective Pikachu" is expected to start shooting in London in January. Nintendo and The Pokémon Company released a Detective Pikachu game for the 3DS previous year, and Legendary announced it is adapting the property into a film in August 2016. The Detective Pikachu video game was never brought outside of Japan, so it will be interesting to see if Nintendo and The Pokémon Company decide to translate the game with the film's new star. The script comes from Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Alex Hirsch (Gravity Falls). It will also be produced through Universal Pictures, who will distribute the film in the US and most global markets.
