Together with Reynolds in the film will play 22-year-old Justice Smith, known for the TV series "Annealing", and the 20-year-old star of the TV series "The Big Little Lie" Catherine Newton. The plot of "Detective Pikachu" tells about the boy Tim Goodman, who is searching for the missing father and during the search is faced with Pikachu who knows how to talk. Pokemon can not fight like its kindred, but has a high level of intelligence and works as a private detective, investigating cases related to other animals. Legendary Pictures, which is making the film, has high hopes for it and hopes that it will become the first part of a big franchise, and the role of Pikachu was considered by Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Hugh Jackman, but eventually settled on Reynolds. By the way, it’s not easy to find out Ryan himself in the picture - unless his hero is presented with recognizable actor's mimicry: Reynolds is turned into one of the famous Pokémon using motion capture technology and 3D graphics, and directed by Rob Letterman aliens "and" Underwater Tale ".
