SONIC THE HEDGEHOG Movie Enlists DEADPOOL Director

Paramount Picks up Rights to Sonic the Hedgehog Film

As it so happens, Paramount was able to acquire the film rights for Sonic the Hedgehog after Sony Pictures let theirs lapse well after the project's initial announcement way back in the year 2014. He will instead serve as executive producer while Jeff Fowler will make his directorial debut. Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons are co-producers. Moritz is also onboard to produce.

And few things kill any possible optimism for a Sonic film than "live-action/CGI hybrid".

When it comes to classic video games, Sonic the Hedgehog really takes the biscuit (or the golden rings). 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. More than 360 million copies, including both packaged and digital games, have been sold on various platforms.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie has just entered pre-production, and has yet to receive an official release date.

Paramount Pictures picked up the project after Sony Entertainment put the project at the backburner, according to The Hollywood Reporter. From 2014's Need for Speed to 2016's Assassin's Creed, and even the upcoming 2018 films Tomb Raider and Rampage, we've seen a rise in filmmakers tapping into the video game market for movie ideas. It'll be a family-oriented flick that combines live-action and animation. Though it seems as though the film would be more suited for CGI, the team could offer something in the way of the twist found in The Lego Movie.
