Ryan Reynolds to Star in Detective Pikachu

The actor has reportedly signed on to star as the world's most famous Pokemon in the upcoming live-action film "Detective Pikachu".

A few months ago, we wrote that a live-action movie based on the video game Great Detective Pikachu is in the works.

Goosebumps director Rob Letterman is helming the project, from a script penned by Guardians of the Galaxy scribe Nicole Perlman and Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch.

The shooting for the film will start in mid-January in London.

Smith's character has to team up with both Detective Pikachu and Newton's journalist character to find the missing father. Newton, who is now seen on Big Little Lies, will be playing a journalist in the film.

Ryan Reynolds isn't the only one joining the movie today, publicly. He is described as "a self-styled investigator who is good at finding things", and he will soon find himself on the biggest case of his career. The company believes the film will be a success since the video games witnessed high sales worldwide.

No release dates have been announced for the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie. But what do Detective Pikachu and Deadpool have in common? Universal Pictures will be distributing the film in regions outside of Japan, where long-time Pokemon film collaborator Toho will handle distribution duties.
