Ryan Reynolds Will Play Detective Pikachu In DETECTIVE PIKACHU

Ryan Reynolds To Voice Pikachu In Live Action Pokémon Movie 'Detective Pikachu'

Hoping for Danny DeVito to voice Detective Pikachu in the upcoming live-action film based on the character?

Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) and Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies) are also a part of the film's main cast. Rob Letterman of the "Goosebumps" movie will begin directing around January in London.

Filming on the project is expected to start soon.

Ryan Reynolds is going to catch them all. Despite Mr. DeVito's comments when the project was announced past year, it looks like Ryan Reynolds will be voicing the character, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Pikachu is a species of Pokemon, while Detective Pikachu the character is a peculiar sort from the Pikachu set, a self-styled investigator who is good at finding things. According to the trades sources, Reynolds' role is said to be a motion capture role. Are you more or less interested in Detective Pikachu due to Reynolds' involvement? Newton's character fills out the heroic trio as a "sassy journalist" - so basically, just imagine me.

Funnily enough, there's still no word on whether or not the original Detective Pikachu game will ever be released outside of Japan, or whether he'll have another outing.

This news comes from an exclusive report from The Hollywood Reporter. It will also be produced through Universal Pictures, who will distribute the film in the USA and most worldwide markets.
