Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is reportedly in the running for the lead voiceover role in Detective Pikachu. The star is being considered for the role of Pikachu, according to The Hashtag Show.

According to the site, Johnson is in competition with Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, and Mark Wahlberg for the role. Legendary Pictures announced its plans for the film, which is a live-action/CGI hybrid adaptation of the game Great Detective Pikachu.

The site does make sure to note that none of these stars has met with Legendary yet, and they are just names being considered. Rob Letterman (Goosebumps) will direct.
