For the past few months, rumours have been circulating that a live-action Pokémon movie was being developed based off of the Detective Pikachu concept. The official Pokémon website has finally confirmed that the movie is indeed being worked on and that it will be directed by Rob Letterman.

Director Selected for Live-Action Pokémon Film

The upcoming Detective Pikachu will be directed by Rob Letterman.

Legendary Entertainment has announced that Rob Letterman is set to direct the upcoming Detective Pikachu, a groundbreaking live-action film. With a script written by Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch, the project follows the story of Detective Pikachu, a new character in the Pokémon universe. Rob Letterman's past directing credits include 2004's Shark Tale (which he also wrote), Monsters vs. Aliens, and Goosebumps.

Legendary's distribution partner, Universal Pictures, will release the live-action film outside Japan. The Pokémon Company's longtime movie collaborator, Toho, will handle distribution of the film franchise in Japan, as it did in its partnership with Legendary on its iconic monster reboot for Godzilla.
