Ryan Reynolds is Officially Detective Pikachu in Live-Action


I never thought I would be typing that title, but it’s true. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has signed on to voice the title character in Legendary’s upcoming live-action adaptation of the Pokémon video game, Detective Pikachu.

Reynolds will headline a cast that features up-and-comers Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) and Kathryn Newton (Supernatural). Rob Letterman (Goosebumps) is directing the film with a script from Alex Hirsch (Gravity Falls) and Nicole Perlman (Captain Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy). Filming is expected to begin mid-January in London.
