The headline you just read is correct. 'Deadpool' star Ryan Reynolds has been tapped to play Detective Pikachu in a live-action Pokemon film that's currently being developed.

Reynolds' Detective Pikachu character will be in a motion-capture suit so he's actually going to look like Pikachu and will assuredly have more lines than 'Pika Pika'.
