However, until now there has not been any live action film that celebrates the pocket monsters found in the Pokemon series. This was the doughnut hole in the entire enterprise that is Pokemon.
Early on in 2016, many studio heads were reportedly in a tussle over who would get the rights to direct a live action Pokemon movie. Finally, when Nintendo and Niantic rolled out the Pokemon Go game that took the world by storm, there was a chain reaction that led to further developments.
Progress became a watchword and the faint outline of a movie began to be visible on the event horizon. The big screen awaited the display of a Pokemon Go interaction sequence in the form of live characters.
There were rumors that Legendary Pictures was about to sign a deal with The Pokemon Company for exclusive rights to the movie. This was followed by another flying rumor regarding screenwriter Max Landis penning a script for the whole shebang.
The final word on the matter came when it was decided that Legendary Pictures would make the movie and that Landis would have nothing to do with the enterprise.
Landis later went on to deliver a rant regarding the whole matter. He told ScreenRant that had he been the author of the script, he would have put the emphasis on a kid named Red.
Red’s mom would have been a former Pokemon trainer. However, in the beginning, Red’s mom developed creative differences with her team of monsters.
This led to Red’s resentment towards the Pokemon characters. Landis said that his script would have been a very emotional and cool series of dialogues and scenes that would have done full justice to the Pokemon series. So he was sad that such a thing would not be happening.
