Legendary Entertainment has a lot of faith in Detective Pikachu because the studio is fast-tracking a sequel.
No, this isn’t related to the rumored Mewtwo movie, but a bonified Detective Pikachu 2 movie. The first movie is still three months away from premiering, but that didn’t stop them from sharing the news with The Hollywood Reporter.
The studio is hiring Oren Uziel to write the script. Uziel wrote the scripts to 22 Jump Street and The Cloverfield Paradox, as well as the upcoming Supergirl and Sonic the Hedgehog movies.
Legendary Entertainment didn’t provide The Hollywood Reporter with details on the sequel’s script, nor did they state if Ryan Renolds and director Rob Letterman will be involved.
