There’s no doubt that the release of Pokémon Go was the best thing to happen both Nintendo and the Pokémon franchise in quite some time. As evidenced by a 25% jump in stock and $9 billion USD market growth, Nintendo’s future looks brighter than ever and news of a movie deal in Hollywood will only add to the company’s recent fortunes. According to a report on Deadline, Legendary Pictures – the company behind The Dark Knight and Jurassic World – is the frontrunner in securing a deal to make a live-action film based on the legendary pocket monster game. Though rumors regarding a Hollywood-produced Pokémon movie in Hollywood have been around for some time, the gigantic success of the mobile game app has reignited interest in a franchise deal. It’s also worth noting that Legendary is coming off a hugely successful release of a Warcraft movie which grossed a phenomenal $156 million USD during its opening weekend in China.
