The "Deadpool" star has signed on to star in the live-action Pokémon movie "Detective Pikachu", according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Reynolds joins The Get Down star Justice Smith, who will get some blockbuster exposure in J.A. Bayona's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and Big Little Lies actress Kathryn Newton.

Director Rob Letterman is helming the project, while the script has been penned by Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch. Detective Pikachu will be called upon to search for the missing father of Smith's character, while Newton will portray a journalist who gives them a much needed assist.

Despite that, "Detective Pikachu" is scheduled to start shooting in January.

Before Reynolds shows up in Detective Pikachu's fedora, he will first return in to cinemas in Deadpool 2, which opens June 1, 2018.
