Ryan Reynolds To Play Pikachu in Pokemon Movie

I am still trying to wrap my head around a talking Pikachu, but let’s move past that. There is a lot to unwrap here.

Actor, and certified hottie Ryan Reynolds has been cast as ‘Detective Pikachu’ in the upcoming live-action Pokemon movie.

The Hollywood Reporter says, “Reynolds joins Justice Smith, who will be seen in the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and Big Little Lies actress Kathryn Newton in the movie, titled Detective Pikachu, based on the gaming franchise.

Rob Letterman (Goosebumps) is directing the project, which is due to start shooting mid-January in London.

The concept of Pokemon, which launched with a video game that transformed into a card-collecting, TV and movie franchise phenomenon, sees players acting as trainers who collect cute but powerful monsters called Pokemon in order to compete in battle tournaments.”

I am still confused, but YAY RYAN!
