Sony Working on Sonic the Hedgehog Movie


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony and producer Neal Moritz are currently at working on bringing Sega’s iconic Sonic the Hedgehog to the big screens via a new full-length feature that uses a hybrid of CG animation and live action. The studio has tapped Japan-based production outfit Marza Animation Planet, which is a division of the Sega Sammy Group.

The screenplay for the planned Sonic film is being written by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux. The story is said to feature some of the franchise’s most popular characters, including the villain Dr. Eggman, alongside Sonic the Hedgehog.

“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.”
