Last week we reported that Legendary will bring Detective Pikachu to the big screen some time in the future, a project propelled in part by the popularity of Pokemon Go. Detective Pikachu seems like an unexpected way to do a live-action Pokemon film, and as it turns out, there were some other Pokemon pitches that just didn’t catch on.
Steve Weintraub of Collider had a chance to speak with Max Landis at the San Diego Comic-Con, and got him to spill the beans about his unused pitch for a Pokemon film. Just picture a cross between Harry Potter and Rocky.
Give it a watch below.
Max Landis can be a bit of a twerp sometimes (even when he has good ideas), but his pitch did sound kind of quaint and earnest. Then he gets all Max Landis-y because he’s Max Landis.
Classic Max Landis.
