Last year, Legendary Films revealed that it was fast-tracking an adaptation of Detective Pikachu into production. If the rumor mill is to be believed, it appears that movie might finally be starting to come together, with a couple of surprising names being attached to the project.

YouTube channel The Hashtag Show says it has received word of the names that the creative talent behind the film has been considering. Among the names listed are Hugh Jackman, Dwayne Johnson, Zach Galifianakis, and even Mark Wahlberg. It's worth nothing that the show doesn't provide any support or evidence for this list of names, so take this all with a grain of salt. Still, it's fun to imagine The Rock himself voicing Pikachu, no?
