    In April, we heard about a bidding war for the Pokemon movie rights. Now, it's been reported that talks are heating up further after the massive success of Pokemon Go.
    Deadline reports that "all Hollywood has renewed the chase for a deal to turn Pokemon into a feature film." The site added that The Hunger Games and Warcraft film company Legendary Pictures is "moving toward a deal" to make a live-action Pokemon movie.
    [​IMG]Information is light at the moment, and Deadline stresses that "no deal has been closed." The April report claimed Legendary was "aggressively" pursuing a Pokemon movie deal, while Harry Potter studio Warner Bros. was also reportedly in the mix.
    Warner Bros. has a Pokemon history, as it released Pokemon: The First Movie in 1999 to commercial success; this film was followed by sequels Pokemon: The Movie 2000 (2000) and Pokemon 3: The Movie (2001). These movies were animated, however, while the one studios are reportedly bidding for now would be live-action.
    Pokemon Go launched last week and has since become a global phenomenon. On the business side, its release has added $9 billion to Nintendo's market cap.
