It seems Hollywood has also caught the Pokemon Go fever as a live-action Pokemon movie is reportedly being eyed by film studio Legendary Pictures.

The studio is close to landing the rights to make the film based on the pocket monster game from Japan, reported Deadline.

Details are scant at this point and no deal has been closed, but it’s headed that way, according to sources.

Legendary and Pokemon USA have not commented on the report as both parties are presumably still hammering the deal.
