A 24-year-old who quit his job as a barista in Auckland, New Zealand, to chase Pokemon will now be the subject of a new documentary. 

According to Lonely Planet, Tom Currie has producers lined up to film his travel experiences. 

“There’s a possible documentary in the works” he has revealed to Lonely Planet. “I’ve been approached by three different producers, including one from America. I am definitely keen to do that!”

Currie has already caught more than 1,100 Pokemon so far in destinations around New Zealand. 

“I have caught Pokemon in Charleston, Greymouth, Nelson, Blenheim, Kaikoura, Christchurch and I will head to Dunedin to do some hunting!” he says in the article.

Currie has also had a friend join him on his road trip. 

“I have my friend who has decided to join me on my adventure as well and he doesn’t play Pokemon Go so he can keep an eye on me.”
