Sonic The Hedgehog Movie from Paramount

Paramount Pictures raced to nab the movie rights to Sonic the Hedgehog, the popular SEGA videogame franchise.

Neal H. Moritz, whose Original Film banner recently signed an upcoming first look deal with Paramount, will produce the project, which is coming to the studio after Sony Entertainment put it into turnaround.

Much of the team that was developing it at Sony remains: in addition to Moritz, Deadpool director Tim Miller is executive producing, while his longtime Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler will make his feature directorial debut on the film. Also executive producing is Toby Ascher, while Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons will serve as co-producers.

Sonic the Hedgehog centers on Sonic and his friends, such as Tails and Knuckles, who run around collecting items and points as they attempt to foil the global domination plans of Doctor Eggman Robotnik. The game was first released by SEGA in 1991, with the character becoming one of the world’s biggest gaming icons. More than 360 million copies, including both packaged and digital games, have been sold on various platforms.

The studio plans on making a movie that will blend live action and CGI animation as it brings Sonic to the big screen for the first time.

Fowler previously wrote and directed the 2005 Academy Award-nominated best animated short, the animal-centric Gopher Broke, which Miller executive produced.

I hope the live action is done well like the Sonic Adventures games. If not it might be another dreadful live action Smurf 1 & 2 from Sony all over again..

Considering it's Paramount, God, maybe you're right... Eugh.

If it looks promising though I'd totally go see it.

Sony Pictures originally had the movie rights, I wonder what made them decide to hand it over to Paramount Pictures?
