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

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

The studio has acquired movie rights to the popular SEGA video game franchise, with plans to bring Sonic to the silver screen for the very first time.

Moritz will produce the project, with Deadpool director Tim Miller taking up an executive producer role.

This will be the first film adaptation for Sonic and it is now a live-action /CGI animation combination that is now scheduled for a 2019 release date. With his experience in animation, there might be some hope in this movie, despite the poor reputation of video game adaptations.

First released in 1991, the Sonic the Hedgehog game series was responsible for putting Sega on the map. If one of these names sounds out of place, it shouldn't. What do you want to see from a Sonic film?

Russian Federation court sentences opposition politician Alexei Navalny to 20 days jail
His successor, career diplomat John Tefft was summoned out of retirement and served as USA ambassador to Russian Federation between 2014 and 2017.

The movie will blur live-action and CGI animation together to create a hybrid experience. Hell, even when it comes to games, Sonic's recent outings have ranged from pleasantly surprising (Sonic Mania) to disastrous (Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric). Sonic uses his stature as world's fastest hedgehog to move at supersonic speed to protect his friends from their enemies.

The film will look to capture Sonic's irreverent tone and spirit, reuniting him with some of the most revered and infamous characters of the franchise, including the evil Dr. Eggman. His only directing credit is a short from 2004 titled, Gopher Broke. Sonic the Hedgehog has sold more than 360 million copies, accounting for both retail and digital games, across various consoles and systems.

"Sonic the Hedgehog" live-action film has a 2019 theater release date.
