Pokemon Movie Scores Guardians of the Galaxy Writer
Pokemon Go's popularity may already be waning a bit, but there's still a big budget Pokemon movie on the way - and the film has just found its writers.

Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch have come on board to pen the film, and both writers have very enviable credits that give us hope the Pokemon movie could work. Perlman is a product of Marvel's writing program, and she wrote the first draft of Guardians of the Galaxy. Although writer/director James Gunn claimed he didn't use a single word of Perlman's script, Marvel must have seen something they liked, because they currently have her working on Captain Marvel. Hirsch, on the other hand, created the acclaimed animated series Gravity Falls, which focuses on the supernatural happenings in a small town in Oregon.

The pair's combined contributions to some of the funnest sci-fi properties of the past few years should definitely aid the live action Pokemon movie, which will focus on the character of Detective Pikachu. The film has a lot of potential to be either a disaster or something really special, so hopefully with these two minds working on the screenplay, we'll end up with the latter.
