"After Nintendo’s $9 billion 25% stock price jump followed the launch of the Pokemon Go mobile game in the U.S., all Hollywood has renewed the chase for a deal to turn Pokemon into a feature film. I’m told that Legendary Pictures is moving toward a deal to land the rights to make a live-action film based on the decades-old pocket monster game from Japan that has gotten a giant second wind since the release of the new app. Details are scant at this point, and no deal has been closed, but I am persuaded that it’s headed that way."
How would a Pokémon movie even work?
Will the anime-ish Pokémon look translate well onto the big screen as VFX characters?
What about the story?
I got my worries with this one.
