Legendary shocked the world when it was revealed that they were fast-tracking the production of a Pokémon movie based on Detective Pikachu. However, it seems as though this wasn’t the only Pokémon movie idea in circulation. Screenwriter Max Landis and producer Roy Lee had a pitch for a Pokemon live-action film that was enough to get Netflix interested in distributing it. However, The Pokémon Company put a stop to it, insisting the film be based on Detective Pikachu. Landis wasn’t interested, and it would seem that the rest is history. More information, courtesy of Collider, can be found in the video below.
