To take the Pokemon Go to new heights and to encash on the Pokemon popularity, Legendary Pictures is all set to adapt Pokemon into the big screen. Talks are on the way to land two major writers to pen down the script for the movie.
As per the reports, Alex Hirsch and Nicole Perlman are in negotiations to get onboard as the writers for the movie. Perlman is a former Marvel writer, who had successfully penned down the script for the famous Iron Man and Guardians of the Galaxy, along with other notable movies.
The storyline of the movie is expected to go much in the direction of The Adventures of Tintin, where Pikachu, will team up with a human boy and sets out on a voyage to solve mysteries around. It will be entirely a detective-adventure drama.
The Universal Studio is working on this project jointly with Legendary Pictures and would bring the movie to the theaters as quickly as possible so as to encash upon the Pokemon Go craze before it finally dies out.
"It will take the Pokemon brand to a new height and will look to re-install the Pokemon craze back into the fans through the movie," said a source.
Toho will manage the distribution aspects of the movie in Japan, while Universal #Studios# will see through the distribution of the film outside Japan.
