A Live Action 'Sonic The Hedgehog' Movie Is In The Works

'Sonic the Hedgehog' Movie Races to Paramount (Exclusive)

The planned live-action/CGI animated Sonic the Hedgehog film has jumped to Paramount Pictures, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Moritz, Miller, and Fowler have stuck with the project since it was first being developed by Sony, which acquired the film rights from SEGA in 2013. Toby Ascher, Dmitri Johnson, and Dan Jevons are attached to the film production as well. Also producing is Neal H. Moritz under the Original Film banner. After 26 years, it appears a live-action-ish Sonic movie will finally happen.

How does one go about telling the story of a blue hedgehog that likes to run really fast on the big screen?

When it comes to classic video games, Sonic the Hedgehog really takes the biscuit (or the golden rings).

No release date for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie has been revealed.

Marilyn Manson's Team Has Released A Statement On His Condition
Variety reported that the house and stage lights remained down for several minutes as crew members tried to help Manson. Journalist Katerine Turman tweeted that he was taken to the hospital and says that he only sustained a leg injury.

The idea, which has apparently been floating around for a while, will have CG animation and live action and we can imagine the style will make many childhood dreams come true (or rip them to shreds).

Unlike many other video games that are turned into movies, Sonic the Hedgehog already has a wealth of adaptation under its belt. Sega then tied up with Sony Pictures Entertainment in 2014 for the film development in its bid to expand its entertainment brand. Over 360 million copies, both packaged and digital games, have been sold on various platforms.

The film will look to capture Sonic's irreverent tone and spirit, reuniting him with some of the most revered and infamous characters of the franchise, including the evil Dr. Eggman.
