‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ movie moves on to Paramount Pictures


If you didn’t know about the Sonic the Hedgehog movie that has been in the works for a couple of years now, basically it started life over at Sony Entertainment. It is now revealed that the IP will be heading to Paramount Pictures as Sony has dropped the project. Neal H. Moritz and his company have signed a ‘first look deal’ with Paramount. They will be producing the project.

While the project is shifting publishing houses, it seems most of the staff from Sony Entertainment will be staying. This includes Deadpool director Tim Miller as executive producer, Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler will make his directorial debut, Toby Ascher is executive producing, Dmitri Johnson, and Dan Jevons will be co-producers. Sadly the movie is still aiming at being a blend of CGI and live action, which honestly sounds terrible.

Now its making me wonder if we will ever see a Sonic the Hedgehog movie and if we do if it will be any good. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below!

    Giving it to a rookie director is a terrible choice. SEGA has invested so much into the franchise that this move confuses me. I could see live action and animated work, if they use beautiful real world environments and give them a little CG makeover by adding iconic Sonic elements like robots, loops, airships, etc. Eggman played by a real actor could work, but then Mike Pollock wouldn’t be used (unless he dubs the actor or Mike shaves his head and grows a big moustache).

    How can you say “It sounds terrible” if you haven’t even seen the movie yet?

    • OriginalName says:

      He can say “it sounds terrible” because the description paints an unappealing image in his head, just like if I told you I’m adding mayonnaise to your birthday cake you could say it “sounds terrible” and be well within your rights even if everyone else in the room thought it sounded delicious.

  3. My opinion is it should be CGI animation instead of having live action into mix. Just do it in animation and use the same voice actors from the games.
