Action Pokemon Movie Finds Its Star

Action Pokemon Movie Finds Its Star

We already know that the first Pokemon live-action film will be based around the Great Detective Pikachu game that launched on the 3DS.

Directed by Rob Letterman, the new Pokémon project from Legendary Entertainment is the first in a series that will be based on the Nintendo 3DS game "Meitantei Pikachu: Shin Konbi Tanjyou", or "Great Detective Pikachu: The Birth of a New Duo", which was released exclusively in Japan on February 3, 2016.

Smith can now be seen in Baz Luhrmann's Netflix series The Get Down (which recently got overlooked for a second season). Rob Letterman is set to direct a script by Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch.

Justice Smith, 22 - best known for portraying Radar in the movie Paper Towns and Ezekiel in the Netflix series The Get Down - will be playing the main character, Variety reports.

Smith can be seen next in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, while there's no details of a release date for Detective Pikachu. Fans of the game are pulling for Danny DeVito, and while I can't say I disagree, I'd nearly be more up for someone like Nick Nolte, as unrealistic as it is.
