Ryan Reynolds To Play Detective Pikachu In Live Action Pokemon Movie

I.... just wanted to write those words because of how much they made me chuckle.

 

Hollywood: WTF

Remember how weird it seemed last year that a live-action Hollywood movie based on Detective Pikachu was getting made? Welcome to 2017, where Ryan Reynolds is in the movie. As Pikachu.

THR report that Reynolds has signed on for a starring role in the project, which begins filming in London early next year.

And by starring they mean starring.

Reynolds will play the titular Detective Pikachu.

The report says that the role “is said to be motion capture in nature”, since it’s a live-action role where Pikachu is digitally inserted. So think Andy Serkis and Gollum.

Only it’s Ryan Reynolds and Pikachu with a hat. He’ll star alongside Justice Smith, the young actor set to appear in the next Jurassic Park movie.

If you’re wondering why sign up a Hollywood actor just to make “PIKA” noises, remember, Detective Pikachu can talk. And however it goes down, at least it can’t be as bad as the last time Pikachu opened its mouth.

... Wut

 

Doesn't Pikachu kind of have an iconic voice already?  Pika Pika, etc. and so forth?

Pikachu's Canadian now. You should be happy, Freeman.

As a fellow sexy Canadian Vancouverite, I am pleased. 

 

Still confused.

They better play this completely straight.

Like it's a hardboiled noir film about murder, betrayal and a human sex traffic conspiracy filled with scumbag criminals...only the main character is Pikachu in a funny hat.

I want the opening scene to depict Ash thrown through a window, followed by a shot of his bloody baseball cap, in a parody of how Watchmen starts.

And the femme fatale trying to seduce him while at no time anyone ever acknowledges he's a Pokemon.

I hope it plays like Fletch.

Can someone explain to me what the actual fuck?  Why an animal as a detective?  Why not a proper Pokemon movie...?
