THERE ARE PLANS IN MAKING IT BOTH LIVE-ACTION AND CGI ANIMATED.
The movie rights to Sonic the Hedgehog is now owned by Paramount. Neal H. Moritz ( I Am Legend) and Tim Miller (Deadpool) are now teaming up to deliver the SEGA video game icon to the silver screen. They are producing and executive producing, respectfully. Jeff Fowler, Miller’s long-time collaborator, will have his directing debut on the project. They are planning to make the film as a mix of live-action and CGI animation.
Sonic the Hedgehog was released by SEGA back in 1991. As the video game, Sonic and friends runs around collecting items and gaining points while at the same time foil the global domination plans of Doctor Eggman Robotnik. Ever since, the game developed a huge fan base. Sonic and his friends, such as Tales and Knuckles, have been portrayed in animated shows.
