Ryan Reynolds Is Starring In The New Pokémon Movie As 'Detective Pikachu'

By Zachary Brenner

The Pokemon franchise has touched nearly every part of pop culture. They've had comics, games, TV shows, toys, animated movies, and a live touring musical. One thing they haven't had yet though is a live-action film, but that's all changing thanks to an upcoming film starring Ryan Reynolds

The film, Detective Pikachu, stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular Detective Pikachu. The movie will also star Justice Smith and Kathryn Newton. Goosebumps director Rob Letterman is set to direct Detective Pikachu

The movie takes place in the world of Pokemon and tells the story of Smith's father being kidnapped and Detective Pikachu taking the case. Not much more is known than that, but we do know that Newton will play a journalist in the film.
