After Pokemon Go's Huge Success, Hollywood Racing to Make Live-Action Movie - Report
Godzilla studio reportedly "moving toward a deal."
Deadline reports that "all Hollywood has renewed the chase for a deal to turn Pokemon into a feature film." The site added that Godzilla and Warcraft film company Legendary Pictures is "moving toward a deal" to make a live-action Pokemon movie.
Information is light at the moment, and Deadline stresses that "no deal has been closed." The April report claimed Legendary was "aggressively" pursuing a Pokemon movie deal, while Harry Potter studio Warner Bros. was also reportedly in the mix.
Warner Bros. has a Pokemon history, as it released Pokemon: The First Movie in 1999 to commercial success; this film was followed by sequels Pokemon: The Movie 2000 (2000) and Pokemon 3: The Movie (2001). These movies were animated, however, while the one studios are reportedly bidding for now would be live-action.
