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

Sonic the Hedgehog

Though he was first introduced in a massively popular video game series, the titular character and his friends have also appeared in multiple television shows too.

Nevertheless, it looks like we could be getting a new Sonic the Hedgehog movie in the near future since Paramount Pictures has recently scored the rights to the movie.

Moritz will produce the project, with Deadpool director Tim Miller taking up an executive producer role. So far, all we know about the film's approach is that it will blend live action and CGI animation. Could this be the movie to break the video game curse? If one of these names sounds out of place, it shouldn't. Whether this mixture will be better than a purely animated film, remains to be seen.

[The] Pic will focus on Sonic's rivalry with characters from the video game, including his evil nemesis Dr. Eggman. So, fans of the Blue Blur were naturally excited when Sony Entertainment announced his big-screen debut, only to be disappointed when it never came to fruition.

Sony passed the rights to Paramount three years later.

Though the franchise has a diverse and wide range of cast members with potential to be included in the adaptation, Sonic games typically aren't well-known for their story elements, favoring gameplay over most other aspects.

First released in 1991 by SEGA, Sonic the Hedgehog has become a staple in the video gaming world as well as being the mascot for SEGA, rivalling that of Mario and Nintendo.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is aiming for a 2019 release, according to IMDB.
