As reported by THR, Legendary has enlisted Oren Uziel to pen the script for a follow-up to the film, which is the first live-action movie in the hugely popular Pokemon franchise.
Uziel does have previous experience with video game movie adaptations, having written the script for Paramount’s upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog film. He also recently signed on to script a Supergirl movie for Warner Bros. and DC Films.
The report makes no mention of the recent rumours that Legendary is also planning feature adaptations of Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue, along with a Mewtwo film, so that remains unconfirmed at present.
