    Sonic the Hedgehog (February 14, 2020) - Don't Watch It And Go Away

    Producer Neal Moritz is working on a big-screen version of the $1 billion video game franchise, which is being written by Upright Citizens Brigade alums Evan Susser and Van Robichaux.

    Sony and producer Neal Moritz are bringing the best-selling Sega video game Sonic the Hedgehog to the big screen.

    The studio is teaming with Japan-based production company Marza Animation Planet, a division of the Sega Sammy Group, to make a hybrid computer-animated/live-action feature.

    Upright Citizens Brigade alums Evan Susser and Van Robichaux are writing the screenplay, which will follow the antics of Sonic, the world's fastest hedgehog. The film will also feature some of the franchise's favorite characters including the evil Dr. Eggman.

    Sony-based Moritz (22 Jump Street) is producing through his Original Film banner alongside Marza’s Takeshi Ito and Mie Onishi. Toby Ascher is executive producing.

    For more than two decades, the billion-dollar Sonic franchise has been one of the world’s biggest gaming phenomena, with more than 140 million games sold.

    "There are limitless stories to tell with a character like Sonic the Hedgehog and a built-in international fan base," Columbia Pictures president of production Hannah Minghella said. "Along with our wonderful creative partners at Marza, we're looking to capture everything that generations of fans know and love about Sonic while also growing his audience wider than ever before."

    Added Marza CEO Masanao Maeda: "Sonic has had dozens of adventures on the console and the small screen, and we're thrilled that he's now coming to the big screen. Sony Pictures has had great success with hybrid animated and live-action features, and we're confident that this collaboration will bring a fresh take to Sonic, while still capturing everything that the fans love about him."

    Sony's hybrid animated/live-action Smurfs has spawned two films to date.

    Moritz is the producer behind the Fast & Furious franchise. He has a Goosebumps adaptation coming up for Sony on Aug. 7, 2015, starring Jack Black.

    Minghella and Andrea Giannetti will oversee the Sonic project for the studio.

    Susser and Robichaux's feature film screenplay, Chewie, was ranked No. 3 on the 2011 Black List. They are currently writing How to Grow Up, a series in development for CBS, and Fist Fight, a feature film with New Girl star Max Greenfield and producers Shawn Levy, Billy Rosenberg and Dan Cohen attached. They are also writing a live-action version of The Jetsons.

    For that matter, let's all play a game. Google your name with "the Hedgehog" after it.

    Yep.

    Might as well put a hedgehog on a hamster wheel and make the video stay on 32 times normal speed.

    Pretty much got the entire plot right there.

    Or just make a movie to conclude the only cartoon adaption that wasn't complete ass. Wishful thinking I know, but damn I hate cliffhanger endings.

    ^Fucking this. I had them from issue one until the Dreamcast days. Wish I had taken care of my collection.

    Not sure if this movie can damage the franchise anymore than Lost World, or the upcoming Sonic Boom.

    Sonic the Hedgehog (2018)

    Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Dated for 2018![/url]


    In summer 2014, Sony Pictures Entertainment and SEGA SAMMY Group’s animation wing, Marza Animation Planet, announced a partnership to develop a film based on the iconic Sonic the Hedgehog video game franchise. Now, a new interview with SEGA CEO Hajime Satomi at Worldfolio (via io9) confirms that the project is not only still in the wings but on a fast-paced trajectory for a 2018 opening.

    “Sega Sammy Group is currently planning with Sony Pictures to create a live-action and animation hybrid ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ movie scheduled for release in 2018,” Satomi confirmed. “Like with this CG animation production, we would like to expand our business into other entertainment areas beyond what we are currently involved.”

    The film will look to capture Sonic’’s irreverent tone and spirit, reuniting him with some of the most revered and infamous characters of the franchise, including the evil Dr. Eggman. Playful, mischievous, and quick on his feet in more ways than one, the world’’s fastest hedgehog is known for his ability to move at supersonic speed to protect his friends from their enemies. For more than two decades, Sonic has been one of the world’’s biggest gaming icons and a $1 billion franchise with more than 140 million games sold.

    Sonic previously headline several animated series starting with 1993’s “Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog” as well as making an authorized cameo appearance in the Disney hit Wreck-It Ralph.

    A hybrid CG-animated/live-action feature, the movie will be written by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux and produced by Neal H. Moritz through his Original Film banner, along with Marza’s Takeshi Ito and Mie Onishi. Toby Ascher will serve as an executive producer.

    So, just to clarify, as I don't understand the article completely, is this getting a live actor to play as Sonic, or is it going to be receiving a Roger Rabbit movie style treatment?

    (Which would go horribly wrong for all the reason that Sonic X exists with Chris)
