A Live Action 'Sonic the Hedgehog' Film Is Back In The Works

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

Paramount Pictures has picked up the film rights to one of video games' most iconic characters. Miller and his Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler will develop the project, on which Fowler will make his feature directorial debut.

It's great to see big names like Deadpool director Tim Miller and Neal H. Moritz attached to the project.

It will also be interesting how the production team will be able to create a compelling narrative in which the video game characters can be fleshed out.

Fans who might be anxious about the change of hands from #Sony to Paramount Pictures will be pleased to know that the latter will be retaining the original team for the untitled project.


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. This is especially true considering the fact that this movie is reportedly going to be part live-action and part CGI. The studio took over Sonic after Sony let the film rights lapse.

First released in 1991, the Sonic the Hedgehog game series was responsible for putting Sega on the map.

It has been roughly a year since a live-action adaptation of Sonic the Hedgehog was announced to be in the works. Miller will be busy directing the sixth Terminator film which is due out in 2019. To date, the franchise has sold more than 360 million copies of its numerous games across different gaming platforms. Hopefully it will look much better than the last time a video game based film tried to do this (I'm talking about you, Pixels).
