Live-Action POKEMON Movie DETECTIVE PIKACHU Casts THE GET DOWN Actor Justice Smith In Lead Role

Legendary has tapped up-and-coming Get Down star Justice Smith to play the lead role in the live-action Pokemon movie, which will be an adaptation of the Great Detective Pikachu video game. Check it out...

After the unprecedented popularity of Pokemon GO, it was really only a matter of time before a live-action movie was officially announced, and it was recently confirmed that Legendary is set to team with The Pokemon Company for an adaptation of Great Detective Pikachu video game.

Now, Variety reports that Justice Smith (Paper Towns, The Get Down) has been cast in the lead role - presumably a human character, and not the voice of the little yellow guy!

A recent rumor suggested that the likes of Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson were all being looked at to provide the voice of Pikachu, but there's no mention of that here.

Rob Letterman (Goosebumps) will direct Detective Pikachu from a script by Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch.
