The iconic Sonic The Hedgehog that goes for more than a jog will be coming to the big screen.
After over 25 years of video games, comics and TV shows, etc. the Blue Blur is finally receiving a live-action film. Originally announced in 2014, it’s set to be released in November 15, 2019 and is to be produced by Paramount Pictures.
From what we know so far Paul Rudd, who is known for his action roles in PG-13 and R rated movies and most recently from his performance as Marvel’s Ant-Man, is set to be the the main human protagonist of the movie. A cop named ‘Tom’ who is to help Sonic and friends defeat Dr. Robotnik, who is more currently known as Dr. Eggman.
The movie is also planned to be a CGI/ live action hybrid. Something along the lines of what we have seen with The Smurfs, Enchanted or Alvin and the Chipmunks.
