The Deadpool star is shifting away from his X-rated superhero and starring as Pikachu in the live-action Pokémon movie Detective Pikachu.

Detective Pikachu is based on the Pokémon spin-off game of the same name, which was released in Japan previous year, in which players work with a talking Pikachu to solve mysteries. Reynolds joins Justice Smith and Kathryn Newton, whose characters will aid Pikachu as he investigates the kidnapping of Smith's character's father. Newton's character fills out the heroic trio as a "sassy journalist" - so basically, just imagine me. As Pikachu.THR report that Reynolds has signed on for a starring role in the project, which begins filming in London early next year. We do know Reynold's role is motion-capture in nature.

The Detective Pikachu video game was released exclusively in Japan past year.

The game's popularity has spawned a card-collecting craze, an animated TV show, an animated movie franchise, and most recently, the augmented reality game Pokemon Go.

With Reynolds' casting and Goosebumps' Rob Letterman directing, it looks like they're going to lean into the ridiculousness of the premise and not take things too seriously, which could wind up being a lot of fun.
