Popular video game character Sonic the Hedgehog is all set to debut on the big screen with "Deadpool" director Tim Miller attached as an executive producer. Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons are co-producers. Before you get any ideas, this won't be the R-rated version of Sonic. The Sonic video games were never about big stories or plot twists, as they focused on fast-action gameplay and entertaining visuals. Video game movies haven't had a great track record in Hollywood, but if Moritz can help launch a scrappy movie about street racing into a billion-dollar blockbuster franchise, he could feasibly make a good Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Sony Pictures previously had the rights to the video game character, but now Sonic has landed with Paramount Pictures. Fowler was the director of the 2005 Academy Award-nominated animated short film "Gopher Broke", which was produced by Miller. The decision is understandable: the movie's production sounds like a gamble, as it does not devote itself fully to animation, which may pose problems; instead, it will work with both CGI and live actors.
Not much else is known about the Sonic the Hedgehog film at this point.
