Ryan Reynolds Will Play Pikachu in Live-Action Pokémon Movie

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

He's now going to play another iconic nerd culture character, but it's not someone (or something) you would expect.

Detective Pikachu has finally tracked down the man who will provide his voice in the upcoming live-action Pokémon movie from Legendary Pictures.

Based on The Pokémon Company's Great Detective Pikachu video game, we're now learning that the pic has chosen none other than Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) to voice the titular character. So as you can probably guess, the movie will also feature a talking Pikachu, very likely speaking in Reynolds' voice. He isn't almost as powerful as other Pikachu or Pokémon, but he makes up for that with his brilliance. So far, there is no word on whether or not the game will release outside of Japan.

Justice Smith, shortly to be seen in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and Kathryn Newton, from Big Little Lies, will also appear.

Countries Around the World Tackled Net Neutrality in Different Ways
It's up to all of us to fight for the free and open internet- or we're going to lose it. LaMalfa to also commit to saying that he will keep net neutrality", said Anderson.

The Detective Pikachu movie will follow Detective Pikachu and Justice Smith as they team up to find the latter's dad, who has been kidnapped by... someone. It seems like a waste of time to hire such a big-name Hollywood actor just for motion capture.

The film is set to be released by Legendary, with a screenplay penned by Alex Hirsch (Gravity Falls) and Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy). The film is being distributed by Universal, but a North American release date has not yet been announced.
