Detective Pikachu the live action Pokemon movie announced by Legendary could have some powerful writers added to the project. Variety is reporting that Nicole Pearlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Alex Hirsch (Gravity Falls) are in talks to write the script for the film. If the negotiations are hammered soon the Detective Pikachu movie will enter production in 2017. Toho is set to handle the Japanese release and Universal Pictures will handle the rest of the countries.
The 3DS Detective Pikachu game was never released outside of Japan but the recent success and popularity of the Pokemon franchise could give fans hope that a world wide release can happen very soon.
