Ryan Reynolds to star in live-action 'Detective Pikachu' Pokémon movie

Reynolds work does not stop at the voice of Pikachu, however. The world is odd, and I'm not sure I'm long for it anymore.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds will be voicing the crime-solving Pikachu. That's a real sentence I just got paid to write, and I'm not sure I'm proud of that. Shooting for the project is geared to start around mid-January, with Rob Letterman of Goosebumps fame directing and Alex Hirsch (Gravity Falls) and Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) penning the script.

Ryan Reynolds will play the titular character, Detective Pikachu, who is a pokemon Pikachu that claims to be a great detective. These are things I wouldn't know because I'm a grown fucking man, but I hope your kids are happy. Reynolds' performance will be done through motion capture, though the idea of him in a giant Pikachu costume is kind of growing on us.

Now, he is facing federal firearm charges that carry a maximum penalty of ten years in prison. President Trump has threatened to withhold federal funding from cities with similar policies.

While the flick's full cast is being kept mum for now, THR shares Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom's Justice Smith will star as well as Big Little Lies' Kathryn Newton.

Detective Pikachu's plot will be based on a kidnapping, with Pikachu (Reynolds) assigned to hunt the offender down.

This casting news will come as a disappointment to some fans who have made it clear that they wanted Danny DeVito for the Pikachu role. Newton is said to play the role of a journalist. One day, Pikachu encounters a boy named Tim Goodman, who is able to understand what he is saying.
