Paramount going fast with Sonic The Hedgehog movie

Paramount Picks up Rights to Sonic the Hedgehog Film

Paramount Picks up Rights to Sonic the Hedgehog Film

Sony Pictures previously had the rights to the video game character, but now Sonic has landed with Paramount Pictures.

For a renowned speedster, Sonic the Hedgehog sure is taking a long time to make it to theaters. Only time will tell if SEGA's mascot will fare any better, though, players will get to see the hedgehog in action later this year when Sonic Forces releases on November 7, 2017. The director behind Deadpool, Tim Miller, will be acting as executive producer, Jeff Fowler (a collaborator that has worked with Miller before) will be making his directorial debut, and Toby Ascher will act as another executive producer, along with Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons as co-producers. These and other members of the original team are still in place for Sonic the Hedgehog, which aims to bring the Blue Blur to the big screen in a CG-animated, live-action hybrid. Moritz will serve as producer on the project. There's a lot of goodwill towards Miller too, whose Deadpool remains one of the funniest takedowns of the superhero genre out there.

Deadpool director Tim Miller is going to serve as executive producer on the film along with Jeff Fowler . The movie will be a blend of CGI and live-action, similar to Roger Rabbit and The Smurfs .

The new movie will apparently blend live-action and CGI elements.

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.
