Reynolds to Become “Detective Pikachu”

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better…it just has!

Ryan Reynolds will provide motion capture and will provide the voice for the titular character in Detective Pikachu, a film version of the Pokemon-universe video game where the beloved Pikachu is re-imagined as a Sherlock Holmes-style detective.

The film co-stars Justice Smith as a young man whose father is kidnapped and gets an ally in the titular character and joining them as a sassy journalist is Kathryn Newton.

Rob Letterman will be directing the film from a script by Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch.

Detective Pikachu is set to begin production soon for a 2018 release.
