Ryan Reynolds is set to star in the live-action 'Pokemon' movie... and the role he’s playing is Pikachu!
(If you don't watch the show, Pikachu is the little yellow Pokemon Ash is always hanging out with.)
The movie will be called 'Detective Pikachu,' and will tell the tale of a teen boy whose father is kidnapped, leading him to team up with Pikachu in order to uncover the mystery behind his disappearance.
So, is Ryan Reynolds going to be running around in an actual Pikachu costume? Sadly, no, they’ll use motion capture technology to make it look more realistic. (Darn!)
