Live-Action Detective Pikachu Movie is Coming

I’m not joking…


Legendary Pictures has the rights for a live-action Pokemon film, and they have decided to go with Detective Pikachu.

The film will be based on the the recent Nintendo 3DS game titled Great Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Duo.  The game will feature Detective Pikachu working alongside a boy named Tim to solve mysteries.  The plot of the film is kept a secret, and the production will begin sometime next year.

This probably means the game will make its western debut soon.
