Paramount’s Sonic Film Slated for 2019


Despite its initial stay in development limbo, Paramount’s live action/CG hybrid adaptation of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise has been confirmed to be moving along, with the official release date scheduled for November 15, 2019. The film is said to be produced by Neal H. Moritz under his Original Film banner, with Deadpool director Tim Miller attached as executive producer and Toby Ascher, Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons as co-producers. Jeff Fowler, who wrote and directed the 2004 animated short Gopher Broke (also produced by Miller), is set to direct.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is anticipated many fans, despite misgivings about quality due to Hollywood having a poor track record when it comes to movie adaptations of popular videogame franchises. The Sonic franchise does deserve a shot at the big screen, though – with the games bearing its brand having sold more than 360 million copies across different gaming platforms and the property itself spawning several TV shows and numerous merchandising opportunities. Paramount’s movie is going to be the first theatrical feature based on Sonic, although not exactly the first time the Sonic characters have appeared on the big screen – several of the key Sonic the Hedgehog characters have already made cameos in the 2012 Disney film, Wreck-It Ralph.
