Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson are all reportedly high on the contenders list for the lead role in the “Detective Pikachu” animated feature at Legendary.
That Hashtag Show broke the story of the names, but stress that none of them have actually taken any meetings about the role in the film which is an adaptation of the “Pokemon” franchise spin-off game “The Great Detective Pikachu”.
“Goosebumps” director Rob Letterman helms the project penned by Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch. The story follows the high-functioning but bossy yellow creature and his human friend as they become a very unlikely mystery-solving team.
Production is rumored to begin in January.
