The movie is based on a 2016 Japanese video game that requires players to solve mysteries with the help of a talking Pikachu dressed like Sherlock Holmes. Now, Reynolds is in charge of bringing the mascot character to life. Plot details of his solo film have not yet been revealed in full, but it has been confirmed that the movie will be a blend of CGI and live-action. With Reynolds in place, Legendary now has its principal cast and crew in place.

Alongside Reynolds in the first non-cartoon Pokémon adventure will be Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom's Justice Smith and Kathryn Newton from Big Little Lies, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Goosebumps helmer Rob Letterman is on board to direct the project, which is scheduled to start filming in London mid-January. In fact, some of us might have been on that train lobbying for Danny DeVito to don the hat and take on the role of Detective Pikachu. One day, Pikachu encounters a boy named Tim Goodman, who is able to understand what he is saying. Essentially, Danny DeVito is the exact opposite of the standard Pikachu, which is what would have made it amusing.
