Ryan Reynolds will play the titular character, Detective Pikachu, who is a pokemon Pikachu that claims to be a great detective. But what do Detective Pikachu and Deadpool have in common?

No further details about Detective Pikachu were revealed, but the live action/GCI hybrid film is expected to begin shooting in London in mid-January. The team is later joined by a spunky journalist (Newton) who helps them on their mission.

Directed by Goosebumps helmer Rob Letterman, Detective Pikachu touts a script penned by Gravity Falls series creator Alex Hirsch and Guardians of the Galaxy screenwriter Nicole Perlman. The actor will also deliver a motion capture performance according to THR's original report. Universal Pictures will handle distribution in the US and in foreign territories outside Japan. No release date is known at this time.
