Entertainment website, Deadline Hollywood, has reported that Legendary Pictures (Warcraft, Pacific Rim, Godzilla) is already making moves in trying to acquire the live-action movie rights to Nintendo and GameFreak’s succussful video game franchise. According to the report, “This will likely test the bounds of the biggest video-game movie rights deal, which is around $5 million against 5% of first-dollar gross.”

Several names have already been tagged with the live-action Hollywood Pokemon, including Max Landis, is said to be the one writing the script.
