Sonic the Hedgehog

There’s more than enough happening in the world of video games this week, but there’s also some video game movie news to be had as well.

It’s being reported that a movie based on the hit SEGA franchise, Sonic the Hedgehog, is being developed by producer Neal Moritz for Sony and Japan’s Marza Animation Planet. Moritz is known for producing titles like the 21 Jump Street reboot and its sequel, 22 Jump Street, the Fast and the Furious franchise, and many more.

Of the news, Columbia Pictures president of production Hannah Minghella said:

“There are limitless stories to tell with a character like Sonic the Hedgehog and a built-in international fan base. 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.”

The movie will be a live-action/CG-animation hybrid movie, much like Garfield, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and The Smurfs, the latter of which was also from Sony. It will follow Sonic, the world’s fastest hedgehog, and will also feature other characters from the games such as the villainous Dr. Eggman.

Evan Susser and Van Robichaux of Upright Citizens Brigade are writing the screenplay.
