Live Action Detective Pikachu Movie Premiere Announced


The Internet recently got wind of news that Ryan Reynolds has been cast as the voice of Pikachu in the upcoming live-action/CG hybrid movie, Detective Pikachu. The news is unexpected, given that Ryan Reynolds is not the first actor to come to mind when people think of Pikachu, but nonetheless warmly accepted owing to Reynolds having built up an amazing amount of geek cred for his iconic portrayal of the Marvel Comics antihero, Deadpool.

Aside from Reynolds, other stars that were attached to the project include Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’s Justice Smith and Big Little Lies’ Kathryn Newton. And it’s not all casting news – because a recent report from Variety has provided a release date. Unfortunately, the release date isn’t as near as fans would hope: Detective Pikachu has been penciled in for a May 10, 2019 release. The Detective Pikachu movie is being directed by Rob Letterman.
