Paramount Gains Rights to Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

Paramount Gains Rights to Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

The Sonic the Hedgehog video game was first released by SEGA in 1991, since selling more than 360 million copies on various consoles. Moritz, who recently signed a first look deal with Paramount, will be producing the project. So far, all we know about the film's approach is that it will blend live action and CGI animation.

Nominees announced for IAAF Athlete of Year 2017
Voting closes on October 16, with the winners due to be announced at the IAAF Athletics Awards in Monaco on November 24. At the conclusion of the voting process, three men and three women finalists will be announced by the IAAF.

The idea, which has apparently been floating around for a while, will have CG animation and live action and we can imagine the style will make many childhood dreams come true (or rip them to shreds).

According to a new report from The Hollywood Reporter today, Paramount Pictures now has the rights to the Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

Paramount Pictures has taken on the "Sonic the Hedgehog" hybrid movie based on the popular video game character.

General Motors unveils plan to release 20 electric vehicles by 2023
General Motors will use the smash-success 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV as a blueprint for more electric vehicle offerings in the future. Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari had declared last month that an all-electric fleet will hit the roads by the end of 2017.

As of right now, the project is very much in the early stages of development, but here's to hoping it progresses as quickly as Sonic runs. He has two this year: Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces.

[The] Pic will focus on Sonic's rivalry with characters from the video game, including his evil nemesis Dr. Eggman. His only directing credit is a short from 2004 titled, Gopher Broke.

But despite his wide appeal and iconic status, one thing we have never seen: Sonic the Hedgehog in is a feature-length film. Sonic the Hedgehog's screenwriters are more prolific but their joint credits on titles like Team Hot Wheels: Build the Epic Race don't fill me with optimism.
