Ryan Reynolds to Star in Pokemon Movie 'Detective Pikachu' (Exclusive)

Ryan Reynolds is set to star in the upcoming Pokemon film Detective Pikachu

Reynolds is used to being a hero. Paper Towns's Justice Smith and Big Little Lies's Kathryn Newton are also set to appear in the live-action Pokémon film. Sources close to THR note that Reynolds' role will be "motion capture in nature", so don't expect to see the actor all done up in yellow face-paint and a lightning bolt-shaped tail.

Considering how Pokémon has sold hundreds of millions of games and billions of trading cards, fans are simultaneously delighted and blown away by the casting choice.

Ryan Reynolds is joining Detective Pikachu and will voice the famous Pokémon. Ryan Reynolds certainly is diversifying his portfolio going from wise-cracking Deadpool to Detective Pikachu.

While not every Pikachu is a detective, the one that is Detective Pikachu is especially "good at finding things".

As of now, there aren't many details about the Legendary Entertainment project, other than the aforementioned credits. Universal Pictures will be distributing the film in regions outside of Japan, where long-time Pokemon film collaborator Toho will handle distribution duties.
