'Detective Pikachu' Is Going To Be Played By ... Ryan Reynolds?

Ryan Reynolds Cast As Detective Pikachu                                                                    by Peter Palt Ryan Reynolds Cast As Detective Pikachu by Peter Palt

Despite Mr. DeVito's comments when the project was announced previous year, it looks like Ryan Reynolds will be voicing the character, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The world is odd, and I'm not sure I'm long for it anymore. While I'm sitting here wondering what a totally mocapped Pikachu would look like, I think we can all agree there will likely be fewer f-bombs. Rob Letterman (Goosebumps) is directing from a script by Alex Hirsch and Nicole Perlman, and production is slated to start next month in London. I vote for the former. Reynolds will be the voice of the title character as well as provide motion capture for its movements.

For any other leading man, that synopsis would be a head-scratcher, but Reynolds is turning roles that wouldn't work for many of his peers into gold.

Interestingly, Reynolds will be playing Pikachu, the adorable little guy who doesn't actually communicate anything aside from his own name.

Steam No Longer Accepting Bitcoin Payments For Video Games
That's huge leap from the $450 price when the platform began offering the digital currency as a payment method in April 2016. Valve's shirking of bitcoin is another development in a broader debate about the usefulness of the cryptocurrency.

This casting news will come as a disappointment to some fans who have made it clear that they wanted Danny DeVito for the Pikachu role.

The story is about a teenager who teams up with Pikachu in order to find his kidnapped father.

Ryan Reynolds is trading "Deadpool" red for Pikachu yellow. Newton will reportedly play a journalist while Reynolds' Pikachu will offer his help along the way.
