It was recently confirmed that a live-action adaptation of the popular Great Detective Pikachu was in the works, after the success of Pokemon GO. Since then, Legendary has announced a partnership with The Pokemon Company to bring it to the screen, and Rob Letterman (Goosebumps) would direct the film.
Now, it’s come to light a few of the front-runners the studio would like to land for the film. Those names are… ridiculous, to say the least, with Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, and Dwayne Johnson, all in line for the role. It would appear they’re still going for that gruff voice.
