Ryan Reynolds cast in live-action Pokemon movie Detective Pikachu

Detective Pikachu has finally tracked down the man who will provide his voice in the upcoming live-action Pokémon movie from Legendary Pictures.

Reynolds joins Justice Smith, who will be seen in the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom movie, as well as Kathryn Newton of Big Little Lies. Goosebumps helmer Rob Letterman is on board to direct the project, which is scheduled to start filming in London mid-January.

Plot details have also been revealed as the story follows Smith when his character's father is kidnapped, leading to his team-up with Pikachu in order to find him. The current draft of the script is written by Alex Hirsch and Nicole Perlman. Players usually act as trainers, who must collect the Pokemon creatures and use them to do battle.

Ball State upsets No. 8 Notre Dame on late 3-pointer
The Fighting Irish entered the game as almost 20-point favorites over their in-state opponent but instead dropped to 3-1 at home. The Cardinals held Notre Dame (7-2) to 37 percent shooting and just 2-for-10 from 3-point range over the opening 20 minutes.

The Detective Pikachu movie is going in full swing as a major Hollywood actor has signed on for the movie.

Legendary has designs on a Pokemon film franchise, so it's trying to handle this first film with great care.

The new film will be based on the already-successful franchise, introduced with video games in Japan in 1996. In fact, a game for the Nintendo 3DS features this Pokemon, its voice deeper than usual. Reynolds, however, is set to return as the trash-talking superhero in "Deadpool 2", expected to be released on June 1 next year. Is Reynolds the right choice?
