Action Pokemon Movie Casts 'Get Down' Star Justice Smith as Lead

Nintendo Live-action Pokémon movie catches The Get Down star for lead role

Justice Smith will be playing the lead character in the new live-action Pokemon movie Detective Pikachu!

Justice Smith will soon star in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom next year, although some people may know him from the movie Paper Towns. Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch and Guardians of the Galaxy writer Nicole Perlman will be penning the script, while Rob Letterman has reportedly been contacted to direct the film. The Detective Pikachu movie got greenlit thanks to the Pokemon Go craze that occurred past year.

For those unaware, Smith is now starring in the Netflix musical series The Get Down and was recently added to the cast of Jurassic World: Lost Kingdom. Audiences looking forward to the same cute and cuddly Pikachu we grew up with will be a bit disappointed.

Klopp, who missed training on Wednesday to go to hospital after feeling unwell, first gave an update on his own well-being. We will use him for sure but bringing him in for 90 minutes? "It will not happen".

Detective Pikachu does not now have a release date. Fans of the game are pulling for Danny DeVito, and while I can't say I disagree, I'd nearly be more up for someone like Nick Nolte, as unrealistic as it is.

According to Kotaku, it follows Tim Goodman, who stumbles upon a talking Pikachu while visiting Rhyme City in search of his lost father. Just hit the buttons on the top of this page.
