SUPERNATURAL Actress Kathryn Newton Joins The Cast Of DETECTIVE PIKACHU

Supernatural actress Kathryn Newton is the latest addition to the cast of the upcoming live-action Pokemon movie Detective Pikachu and you can find out who she'll be playing after the jump...

The first live-action Pokemon movie, Detective Pikachu, has found its female lead in the form of Kathryn Newton. It was this month we learned that The Get Down's Justice Smith had landed the role of the movie's male lead and Legendary has spent weeks testing actresses to star opposite him.

Newton is best known for starring in Paranormal Activity 4 as well as TV shows like Big Little Lies and Supernatural. Natalie Dyer (Stranger Things), Haley Lu Richardson (Split), and Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why) were all also considered for the role. Newton has generated a lot of buzz with her performances in recent Indie hits Lady Bird and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

In Detective Pikachu, she will play Lucy, "a sassy journalist who goes on an adventure with the boy, played by Smith, and Pikachu, who will be a motion-capture creation for the movie." In the Pokemon Universe, Lucy has a Psyduck as her sidekick so we'll presumably see that creature appear here.
