Before the Detective Pikachu movie starring Ryan Reynolds hits theaters in May, there's already news of a sequel in the works. 

Legendary has announced a sequel to its mixed live-action and animated Pokemon-based movie. 

22 Jump Street screenwriter Oren Uziel is slated to pen the script, according to The Hollywood Reporter. No other details on the sequel have been revealed.

In the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie, Reynolds plays a Pikachu with a Sherlock Holmes detective cap. 

Considering people can only hear Pikachu say "pika pika" when he tries to speak, this live-action universe where Pokemon and humans live together will be an interesting one.

Alongside Reynolds, actor Justice Smith stars as Tim Goodman, a young man in search of his missing father. He teams up with the fuzzy yellow Pokemon for the investigation. 

Detective Pikachu is a spinoff from the Pokemon gaming franchise, which includes the Detective Pikachu game

Directed by Goosebumps director Rob Letterman, Detective Pikachu is scheduled to open in theaters worldwide on May 10, 2019.
