Paramount Picks Up 'Sonic' Movie from Sony

Paramount Pictures has picked up the film rights to one of video games' most iconic characters.

Moritz will produce the project, with Deadpool director Tim Miller taking up an executive producer role.

Visually, the plan is to blend live-action and CG elements, which we can only assume means that Sonic will be a digital character in the real world.

Of course, many wondered about the season-opening opponent Florida State, which was ranked No. 3 at the time of the game. The Crimson Tide opened up the offense a little bit the past couple seasons with Lane Kiffin as offense of coordinator.

Tom McLean has been writing for years about animation from a secret base in Los Angeles.

I'd like to think Miller, who was very key in the success of Deadpool. might be able to interject some life into a Sonic the Hedgehog movie. It'll be a family-oriented flick that combines live-action and animation. In its early versions as a 16-bit video game, Sonic ran around to collect rings and evade the villain, Dr. Edman, as with any typical arcade game. After Moritz left Sony for Paramount he made securing the rights to Sonic the Hedgehog one of his first orders of business.

"Jeff is an incredible director with strong story instincts", Miller said when the project first came to light.

Gamers everywhere will rejoice to hear that Sonic The Hedgehog is racing his way to the big screen. His only directing credit is a short from 2004 titled, Gopher Broke. Sonic is a character who is versatile enough to work in any number of situations, and has a universal, dare we say it, Disney-esque appeal that many video game protagonists lack.

Sonic the Hedgehog has sold more than 360 million copies on various platforms.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is aiming for a 2019 release, according to IMDB.
