Ryan Reynolds is Detective Pikachu

Kelly Marie Tran Was a Radiant Sunfish at the'Star Wars Premiere

The story is described as: Smith's character's father is kidnapped, forcing the teen to team up with Pikachu in order to find him. After being both Green Lantern and Deadpool, this makes sense.

Reynolds joins Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom actor Justice Smith and Big Little Lies standout Kathryn Newton, who play the film's male and female leads, respectively.

IGN reports Reynolds had been one of several names reportedly being considered for the role alongside Hugh Jackman, Mark Wahlberg, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. There are even some weird mashups that have been floating around for years that are especially prescient.

Ryan Reynolds is going to catch them all.

It's said that the moving will start shooting mid January and be directed by Rob Letterman who is known for his work in Goosebumps. Until then, don't be surprised if you see a big yellow pocket monster with a magnifying glass and the voice of Ryan Reynolds, because that's kind of the point. Newton's character, a "sassy journalist", tags along. "Pikachu is probably the most famous species of the fictional creatures, and Detective Pikachu is described as ".a peculiar sort from the Pikachu set, a self-styled investigator who is good at finding things".

THR reported that Reynold's role will be motion capture inaction and the production company, Legendary, is eager to keep additional casting details and information about the project under wraps. The film is being distributed by Universal, but a North American release date has not yet been announced.
