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

Sonic the Hedgehog

That still doesn't make us all that excited for what this movie might turn out to be; though the Sonic universe has some cool characters, the games were never about an interesting story.

It looks like Paramount Pictures is moving forward with a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog film.

The Sonic the Hedgehog series remains one of the most iconic video game franchises in history, spawning a series of platform games, offshoot pinball and puzzle games, animated TV shows, and one of the most infamously self-mocking Twitter accounts ever.

According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, Moritz will produce the project, bringing along an extensive resume of production credits that includes the "Fast and the Furious" franchise and 2007's "I Am Legend".


While Sony Entertainment put the film into turnaround recently, most of the team that was developing it are still on board including Moritz and Tim Miller as executive producer and Jeff Fowler making his feature directorial debut.

The movie will be a blend of CGI and live-action, similar to Roger Rabbit and The Smurfs.

It's been a huge trend within the last few years to adapt video games in to films. It's a move that will prove to be controversial with fans since a property like Sonic the Hedgehog feels more at home with animation. Here is hoping November's Sonic Forces is just as good.

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