    Legendary Entertainment has set Rob Letterman ((Shark Tale, Monsters vs. Aliens, Goosebumps) to direct "Detective Pikachu", the live-action film. Scripted by Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch, the project follows Detective Pikachu, a new character which debuted in the videogame Detective Pikachu ~ Birth of a New Duo~ (released in Japan on the Nintendo 3DS eShop on February 3, 2016).

    I was very worried because I've never watched any of the movies Rob Letterman has directed. I remember when they came out, but they never gave me a good impression, for example, Goosebumps, Shark, Gulliver's Travels.... But I was reassured when they revealed that the writers are going to be from Guardians of the Galaxy and Gravity Falls (Alex Hursch)
