Pokemon Live Action Movie To Have Guardians of the Galaxy/Gravity Falls Feel
The Detective Pikachu film has hired two
Pokemon Go's ridonkulous global success has unsurprisingly sped up plans for a live action Detective PIkachu movie.
But while fans may be worried about Pokemon Company's long-time movie collaborator Toho bashing out a rush job, we're happy to report that some of Hollywood's finest creative minds are on board to steer it right.
Marvel writer Nicole Perlman (who's worked on Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor) and Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch are in talks to helm the movie based on the upcoming Detective PIkachu game.
If the finished movie has anywhere near the level of wit, offbeat charm and sheer crazy-ass bonkersness than either of those, then we are very, very down with that.
