Pokémon is a series that has captured generations as they fight to become the Pokémon master, and with the 20th Anniversary bringing back classic games and cards, it doesn’t come as a surprise when you look at the impact that the popular series has had that there are discussions about a live action Pokémon movie in the works.
The reports come from the Hollywood Reporter who state that right now a “top-secret” (secrets out now people) auction is going on for the rights to make a live-action film of the franchise, with companies like Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros both apparently making a move for the rights while they go against the likes of console rival Sony for the movies rights.
With many live action films for video games getting bad or mixed reviews, with the likes of DOOM and Tomb Raider often causing smiles or tears, it would be interesting to see if such a popular franchise could break the ice in the world of cinema, a move that could even break open the door for other video game franchises such as the Metro 2033 film that could soon be hitting the big screen.
Are you excited about the film? Would you like to see Ash (or Red) conquer the Pokémon world or would you like to see a new character join the franchise amongst the hundreds of pocket monsters that you need to now capture to become a Pokémon master?
