Detective Pikachu finds another co-star with Rita Ora


Will she play a human, Ora Pokemon?

Actress, singer, and TV host Rita Ora will be joining Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Bill Nighy, Suki Waterhouse, and Ken Watanabe in Legendary Entertainment’s 2019 Pokemon film, Detective Pikachu. I have to say the cast for this film is… shockingly impressive.

Ora is fresh off finishing up her role as Christian Grey’s sister Mia in the Fifty Shades series, so it looks like she’s going hard on diversifying her roles. She’ll also soon appear alongside Carrie Fisher in her final non-Star Wars film, Wonderwell.

Last year she took over hosting America’s Next Top Model after Tyra Banks decided to move behind the camera, but was herself replaced by...Tyra Banks, presumably after Tyra realized how much she missed attention.

Ora’s role in the movie is unannounced. My money is on a member of Team Rocket, and hopefully not a femme fatale Pikachu love interest.

Detective Pikachu is set to premiere May 10, 2019.
