The Live-Action Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Is Speeding Up Once Again

Miller and his Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler will develop the project, on which Fowler will make his feature directorial debut. Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons are co-producers. The Sonic video games were never about big stories or plot twists, as they focused on fast-action gameplay and entertaining visuals.

After reading the Sonic the Hedgehog movie announcement there's only one question worth asking: Will Sonic the Hedgehog be the first great video game movie?

The new movie will apparently blend live-action and CGI elements. Paramount has bought the rights to the film and brought along most of the crew that was already working on the film, key among them being Deadpool director Tim Miller. The film was originally being made by Sony Entertainment, but after thing soured, it was picked up by Paramount Pictures.

However, it is a unusual concept to blend computer graphics with live action, which often tends to look uncanny in films centering around both human and animal characters (such as the early 2000's Scooby Doo series and the many Alvin and the Chipmunks movies).

The character's first title Sonic the Hedgehog was released in 1991 for the Sega Genesis.

Sonic the Hedgehog, veteran of countless video games, an animated series (with another on the way), and a long-running comic book series from Archie Comics is coming to the big screen.

Not much else is known about the Sonic the Hedgehog film at this point.
