More news has finally surfaced about the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie. While it is still odd that the game itself remains a Japanese-only release, the property has still gotten fans excited. It has also gotten a director and script writers pumped enough to tackle the ambitious live-action film adaptation. Filming will begin in London in January of next year.

Rob Letterman has signed on to direct the movie with Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch as screenwriters. Letterman is known for directing the recent live-action Goosebumps movie and animated films such as Monsters vs. Aliens. Casting announcements are expected to be revealed soon.

Our Verdict

Eric Zavinski
Hey all! I've been a gamer since I was three. I'm one of those people with gaming so ingrained in them that watching my father play Super Mario 64 is actually my first memory I can recall. I love writing too! I'm writing an original fantasy series that takes place in another universe; it may take some inspiration from some of my favorite franchises. I've been a journalist for a few years, have worked on local and national teams, and have garnered experience assigning stories, editing, writing, interviewing, hosting a television series, running a YouTube channel, and doing other stuff that's more fun to mention in conversation. Bios can drag on. Anyway, I'm super stoked to be a part of the Gamnesia team! Thanks for having me!
