If you’re still trying to get your head around the fact that there’s a live-action Pokémon movie in the works, you’re not alone. The upcoming movie, a celebration of the franchise's 20th anniversary, is an adaptation of the Great Detective Pikachu video game that was exclusively released in Japan.

Ever since the news first broke of the remake last year, we've been wondering who would star as the leading role in the project — and today it was revealed that Ryan Reynolds has been cast to star as Pikachu. Yes, we’re not joking.

The live-action movie, which is currently being called Detective Pikachu, will have Ryan play the role of the titular detective, who must find the missing father of another character in the movie.

So he’s shifting gears away from his typically dirty fare and starring as Pikachu in the live - action Pokémon movie Detective Pikachu . Alongside Reynolds in the first non-cartoon Pokémon adventure will be Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘s Justice Smith and Kathryn Newton from Big Little

Pokémon Live - Action Movie Greenlit. Will it ever actually get made and hit the big screen? Who knows. But a deal has at least been… Only it’s Ryan Reynolds and Pikachu with a hat. He’ll star alongside Justice Smith, the young actor set to appear in the next Jurassic Park movie .

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Justice Smith (who stars in the upcoming Jurassic World sequel) will play the teen with the missing father, who Pikachu is trying to track down. The two will also be accompanied by Big Little Lies star, Kathryn Newton, who is set to play a 'sassy journalist' who helps them out along the way.

We know what you’re thinking though, Pickachu doesn’t speak?!

Although it would be hilarious if Ryan was hired to repeat “Pikachu” 1000 times over in an unbelievably high-pitched voice, the role will apparently be more involved than the video games. Ryan will wear a Sherlock Holmes inspired hat and speak fluent English — we know, we’re still trying to imagine it too.

Ryan hasn’t spoken out about his upcoming role, however, we’re 99% sure he’ll confirm the news with a cheeky ‘Ryan’ tweet — just think of the hysterical comments Blake is going to make about this.

Either way, we’re just hoping the Deadpool star will put on an inflatable Pikachu suit at some point.

Stay tuned.
