Live Action Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Slated for 2019 Release

Live Action Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Slated for 2019 Release

This includes Deadpool director Tim Miller as executive producer, and his Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler as the director. Toby Ascher of The Green Hornet will also produce, while noted video game producer Dmitri Johnson, who has had a hand in titles like We Happy Few and Life is odd, will co-produce with The Darkness writer Dan Jevons.

Producer Neal H. Moritz (22 Jump Street) was overseeing The Sonic Movie (listed on IMDb as Sonic the Hedgehog) when he worked at Sony.

Sonic the Hedgehog was initially confirmed as a live-action/computer animated hybrid film in 2014. The Sonic video games were never about big stories or plot twists, as they focused on fast-action gameplay and entertaining visuals.

Although the massive global appeal of video-games have raked in huge box-office numbers for movies like the Tomb Raider duology, Mortal Kombat and the Resident Evil series, the cinematic adaptations have never been able to match the source material's critical success.

Paramount Pictures is set to capitalize on all your childhood nostalgia with an upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

Paramount has plans to make the movie using both live action and CGI animation, The Hollywood Reporter reported. Sega then tied up with Sony Pictures Entertainment in 2014 for the film development in its bid to expand its entertainment brand.

Sonic the Hedgehog has been running around for a while now for a movie to be made. To date, the franchise has sold more than 360 million copies of its numerous games across different gaming platforms.
