Sonic the Hedgehog movie moves to Paramount

While Sonic the Hedgehog has made appearances outside of video games, including a line of comics, a 1996 animated movie and multiple animated TV shows, this film will mark the character's live action debut. This includes Deadpool director Tim Miller as executive producer, and his Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler as the director. Also executive producing is Toby Ascher, while Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons will serve as co-producers. After 26 years, it appears a live-action-ish Sonic movie will finally happen. How well do you think it will translate to the big screen?

The popular Sega video game franchise "Sonic the Hedgehog" will forge ahead with its live-action treatment from Paramount.
