Ryan Reynolds will be providing the voice actor as a succesful Hollywood actor he can adapt and produce the iconic “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.
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.
THR report that Reynolds has signed on for a starring role in the project, which begins filming in London early next year.
Detective Pikachu Synopsis
Great Detective Pikachu is a video game released in Japan (and Japan only) in 2016. You play as a regular kid walking around trying to solve mysteries, only you’re also accompanied by Pikachu, who can now talk and wears a Sherlock Holmes hat.
Ryan 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. This is exciting news. Ryan Reynolds has been on a roll portraying Deadpool in the upcoming Deadpool 2 sequel which is going to be amazing. I’m excited to see a trailer for both movies and off course the films.
