Detective Pikachu to become a live action movie?

Legendary Pictures and The Pokémon Company have officially announced that they’re planning to launch the first live-action Pokémon film, which will be based on Detective Pikachu.

It would seem the movie will be based on the Nintendo 3DS game The Great Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Team which follows a boy named Tim Goodman who partners with a talking Pikachu to solve mysteries.
