‘Gravity Falls’ & ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Writers In Negotiations To Pen ‘Detective Pikachu’

According to an exclusive report from Variety, Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch are in negotiations to write the upcoming Detective Pikachu film.

Legendary recently acquired the rights to make the Pokemon movie last month, following the massive success of the Pokemon GO app.

Perlman is best known for her work on Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor, and is to direct the 2019 Captain Marvel film.


Alex Hirsch has worked on Gravity Falls and Fish Hooks, both successful shows on Disney Channel.

Great Detective Pikachu is a 3DS game released in Japan in early 2016, and will likely influence the upcoming movie.
