Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Rights Race to Paramount Pictures

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

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.

A hybrid CG-animated/live-action feature, the movie will be written by Patrick Casey and Josh Miller and produced by Neal H. Moritz through his Original Film banner, along with Marza Animation Planet's Takeshi Ito and Mie Onishi.

There's no word on who will be writing the film, which is why there's no word on what the film will be about.

It has been roughly a year since a live-action adaptation of Sonic the Hedgehog was announced to be in the works.

A Sonic the Hedgehog movie was already in development at Sony Pictures, but it basically went into film limbo at some point.

Zinke Recommends Shrinking Six Monuments Including Bears Ears
Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke recommended at least four land monuments be shrunk and that 10 sites allow commercial activity. Tim Freeman, president of the Association of O&C counties, hadn't seen the leaked memo and was hesitant to comment on it.

The film will have a mix of live action and CGI.

Sonic has been a gaming icon since 1991, coming to rise at the height of the 16-bit era.

It's apt that Moritz - the producer behind most of the Fast and Furious movies - will take on the fastest video game character in existence. There's a lot of goodwill towards Miller too, whose Deadpool remains one of the funniest takedowns of the superhero genre out there. We'll see if this movie even gets made or just hangs in limbo getting passed from studio to studio before it just quietly disappears.

Now, let's set aside for a moment the usual concerns that video game movies are, frankly, quite often not any good at all.
