Detective Pikachu, which is set to be movieed by Legendary and Universal, has been replenished. According to Deadline, Bill Nighy has joined him. What role the popular British artist will play is not yet specified.
Earlier it became known that the movie will also star Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Catherine Newton, and other actors. Reynolds got the title role of Pikachu himself. The director is Rob Letterman, based on a screenplay by Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch.
Recall that Universal has chosen a rather risky rental schedule for such a project: the movie will be presented to viewers on May 10, 2019, that is, a few days after the release of the movie "Avengers 4" and on the eve of the premiere of the action movie.
